There is sadness in Emo and surrounding areas this week following the death of Anne Moore after an illness.
Anne was extremely well known and liked in Emo and Portlaoise. “She was a very popular lady who had a word for everyone,” said local councillor Tom Mulhall.
“Her late husband Paddy was known far and wide through his involvement in Question Times in the 70s and 80s and appeared on national television a couple of times. She’ll be sadly missed.”
Anne, who was pre-deceased by her husband Paddy and daughter Suzanne, is survived by her 11 children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and large circle of friends and family.
Her daughter Sinead was a General Election candidate in Laois for the Green Party in 2012 while her son Cormac is well-known historian with a number of published sports books. Her daughter Niamh is married to PJ Kavanagh, owner of the well-regarded Kavanagh’s Bar and Venue on Main Street Portlaoise.
Formerly of Lough, Portarlington, Anne died peacefully at The Midlands Regional Hospital Portlaoise, surrounded by her loving family.
Predeceased by her husband Paddy and loving daughter Suzanne. Deeply regretted by her loving children Joseph, Margaret, John, Helen, Patrick, Sinead, Cormac, Niamh, Aisling, Gerdaline and Ciara, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brother in law, relatives, neighbors and a large circle of family and friends.
