Cathal Coughlan is survived by his wife Julie Coughlan after he passed away at the age of 61 due to long illness.

Cathal Coughlan, a solo artist as well as a collaborator with Microdisney, Fatima Mansions, and Telefs, has died at the age of 61. He died in hospital on May 18 after a protracted illness, according to a statement published today.

Niall Stokes, editor of the Hot Press said that Cathal was one of Ireland's great maverick geniuses. With the establishment of Microdisney in the post-punk period, he emerged and it's fair to say that nothing he's done musically since has been less than artistically demanding and worth listening to.

Throughout his career, he maintained a feeling of musical adventure and a refusal to toe any line, whether it was a line of trend, fashion, politics, or decorum.

In the near future, a memorial service will be held among close friends and family.

Musician Luke Haines, who worked with Coughlan on the high-concept project The North Sea Scrolls, was among others who paid homage. He said that he was at a loss for words at that moment.
