14.08.2018

The NUI Chancellor, Dr Maurice Manning expresses regret at the death of Dr Tom Moran Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast.  In a letter to the President and Vice-Chancellor of QUB, Dr Manning said

“Tom Moran was a dear and long-standing friend of mine. In fact I had the honour of giving the citation on the occasion of his honorary conferring at UCD so I know at first hand his enormous contribution to human rights whether through his  humanitarian work with Concern, his tireless work for peace in Northern Ireland and his substantial and discreet philanthropy. He was a business leader who never forgot the social and ethical dimensions.

Most of all he was a warm, generous and loyal person and I know how much he valued his role as your Chancellor. He is indeed a great loss who will be dearly missed”.
