Dale Moore will be remembered with the unveiling of a new headstone at his graveside in the new lower section of the Cemetery.

Councillor Kevin Campbell said “Dale was well-known and respected throughout Ireland.

He was inspiration to many of us, despite his failing health he didn’t complain, he got on with what needed done.

In his graveside oration, Sinn Féin stalwart Mitchel McLaughlin said that Dale, like many of his peers, when needed stood up with courage and determination for what they believed in.

He was a dedicated, good-natured, lifelong republican activist. And that’s how we will always remember him. I would urge all those who knew him to come along on Saturday for the unveiling of his new headstone at 2pm.
