DEATH of John Joseph “Jack” Moore. Jack was born to James and Bridget (nee McAuliffe) Moore in April of 1931 in Moyvane Village. Jack was predeceased by his brother Tom and sisters Hannah and Mary.

He is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Jack came to the United States in 1949 and settled in the Bronx. He joined and proudly served in the US Army in the early 1950’s. He worked at commercial bakeries along 11th Avenue in Manhattan for a few years before joining the Paper Handlers Union. He went on to work in the Union, mostly at the New York Times, for 44 years.

DAIRY : Farm organisations have voiced their concerns over a move by Tirlán to seek 150 redundancies that some believe could signal a “massive restructuring” of the dairy sector.

The Kilkenny-headquartered co-op, Tirlán, today (Thursday, June 20) confirmed that 150 jobs are likely to go across the organisation as a result of a new “cost reduction programme”.

The president of the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Association (ICMSA), Denis Drennan, warned that this could be “just the beginning of a massive restructuring” of the dairy sector which he said is due to “Government policy”.
