Tributes paid to father-of-one who died in tragic Dungannon factory accident


Tributes have been paid to a father-of-one who was tragically killed in a tragic accident at a Dungannon factory.

Phillip Moore, from Aughnacloy, passed away suddenly at Westland Horticulture in Granville Industrial Estate on Thursday morning.

Mr Moore was described as a “true club legend” by Clogher Valley RFC where he played rugby for many years.

Posting their tribute on social media, the club said: “It is with deep regret we have been informed that our friend and playing colleague Phillip Moore passed away [yesterday] morning after an accident at work. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Ruth, daughter Lilly and the family.

“Phillip played for Clogher Valley RFC for his whole rugby career – Ulster U18 in 1998 – 2000 and Ulster Juniors for over a decade.

“He was immense on the pitch and a true gentleman off the pitch. He was part of the winning Towns Cup teams and the Junior Cup and many league titles, he was feared by many opposition props on the pitch.

“Phillip will be sadly missed by all at Clogher Valley Rugby Club, on and off the pitch.”

He was the loving husband of Ruth, darling daddy of Lilly, son of Lawrence and Eva, brother of Mark and Naomi, brother-in-law of Jen and Jonathan, grandson of Robert John and much loved uncle.

House and funeral private due to the current circumstances.
