Minister Brendan Smith pays tribute to the late Moss Keane

The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Brendan Smith TD, today joined with those paying tribute to the late Moss Keane, who sadly passed away earlier today.

Moss Keane worked for 37 years in the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, having graduated from University College Cork with a degree in Dairy Science, and played a key role in the Department's Dairy Inspectorate, working initially in the Department's Dairy Laboratory and later as part of the Department's Dairy Inspection service dealing directly with the dairy processing industry.

Minister Smith said that "throughout his career, Moss demonstrated the same application and diligence to his work as he did on the rugby field and earlier on the GAA pitch.  He was a very valued member of staff and was very popular with his colleagues in the Department and in the industry".

The Minister concluded: "On my own behalf and on behalf of my Ministerial colleagues in the Department and all the staff, I wish to express sincere sympathy to Ann and their daughters Anne Marie and Sarah."
