The death has occurred of former Cllr Tom Moorehouse, Moran Park, Enniscorthy, who was a Fine Gael member of Enniscorthy Town Council from 1994 to 2014 and served as Chairman during the 2002-’03 term.
Deputy Paul Kehoe is leading the tributes and said he is deeply saddened following the passing of Tom Moorehouse, a supporter and friend.
“Tom was a great Councillor who represented the people of Enniscorthy with the kindness many will have witnessed in person. He loved Enniscorthy and its people and everything he did was to help others. Tom was a family man and Teresa, Fran, Mary, Tina and all Tom’s extended family are in my thoughts at this sad time.”
Tom was a friendly face around St Aidan’s Parish School, where he worked as a caretaker, and was known and respected for his loyal involvement in many groups and charities, including Enniscorthy Tidy Towns’, Chernobyl Shop and he served on St. Aidan’s Cathedral Restoration Committee and the Athenaeum Restoration Committee. His goodness was far reaching and behind all his actions was his extraordinarily strong faith and devotion.
Tom was a family man and Teresa, Fran, Mary, Tina and all Tom’s extended family are in my thoughts at this sad time.
