Fr. Anthony Cogan (1826-1872) was a priest and scholar of the diocese of Meath. He was born in Slane, County Meath c1826 and died there at the age of 45.

His three volume diocesan history was a massive undertaking with the subsequent destruction of the Meath Diocesan Archive renders Cogan’s ‘The Diocese of Meath’ a most important source for the history of this important Irish diocese. Cogan made great use of an extensive archive, which included manuscript materials from the early 17th century.
