Well known and much loved Derry republican, Dale Moore, passed away on Sunday evening.
Dale, (52), worked as a senior press officer for Sinn Fein in Derry and was a feature writer for An Phoblact.
Dale had been unwell for a while.
In 1999 Dale was diagnosed sarcoidosis, a hardening on the lining of the lungs.
Dale underwent a lung transplant in 2007 in the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
An Phoblact described Dale as “a good-humoured, tireless activist to the end.”
Sinn Fein MLA for South Down and Minister for Infrastructure, Chris Hazzard, described Dale as a “selflessly devoted comrade to all of us”.
One friend said Dale was “one of life’s gentleman”.
“The word gentleman gets thrown about a lot but Dale was truly one of life’s gentlemen. One of the good guys through and through.”
