Coosan's population has grown from around 400 in the 1990s to roughly 5000 in the early 21st century, mostly because of the Celtic Tiger. It attracts many tourists over the summer months due to its location on the edge of Lough Ree.
Coosan is divided into three 'quarters': Castlequarter, Hillquarter and Meehanquarter .
Queen of Peace church in Coosan was opened in 1973.
