Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD has extended her sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Tom Moran who died today.
The Sinn Féin leader said:
“I am deeply saddened by the news today of the death of Tom Moran, former CEO of Mutual of America.
“Tom has been a stalwart promoter of the Irish Peace Process since the early 90s and he worked closely with Bill Flynn, who also sadly died several months ago, in promoting and supporting the efforts for peace in Ireland.”
Former Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams TD knew and worked with Tom over many years.
Teachta Adams extended his condolences and solidarity to Tom’s family, saying:
“I was first introduced to Tom by Bill Flynn who was then the CEO of Mutual of America. In May, Tom spoke movingly at Bill’s funeral of the enormous influence Bill had on him in supporting the search for peace in Ireland and in particular the work of Irish America.
“Tom understood the critical importance of involving representatives of all political views in the evolving process of peace and in support of the Good Friday Agreement. He was particularly determined to ensure that the voice of loyalism was heard. Tom knew and was a friend to David Ervine.
“Tom’s loss will be deeply felt by all of us working for peace and justice and for a new dispensation based on inclusivity and equality.
“To his wife Joan and all his family and friends, we send our deepest sympathy.”
