Where ever he lived, Tyrone native Mick McCaughney lived a life of selfless service. He spent much of his life in the border counties as a Garda officer, becoming secretary to three chiefs and helping to ease tension during the Hunger-Strike period. A gaelic footballer, winning honours with Cavan and Monaghan and later becoming a trusted member of Croke Park Staff and a key figure behind the first Combined Rules series against Australia. He was also the author of many books.
Since retirement from the force, he became a loyal member of the Garda Siochana Retired Members Association.
Mick, died peacefully at his hone on 3rd November, aged 85 years. Sincere sympathy to all his family.
