Mr Moore’s journey to Dublin began innocently enough, as he embarked on a short holiday to Belfast just before Easter. However, upon his return the following Monday evening, the escalating disturbances in Dublin prompted him to seek refuge at the residence of a friend in Fairview.

Unfortunately, on the night of Wednesday, while the area was rife with sniping, tragedy struck. A stray bullet pierced the hall of the house, tragically finding its mark in Mr Moore’s heart, resulting in fatal consequences.

Expressions of sympathy and condolences have poured in from various quarters, reflecting the widespread impact of Mr Moore’s passing. From heartfelt tributes in local newspapers to solemn gatherings in his memory, the community has come together to honour his legacy and support his bereaved family.

As the investigation progresses, there is a collective hope for justice and accountability, not only for Mr Moore but also for the countless others who have been affected by the unrest in Dublin.
