This is the Story of Droichead Nua (Newbridge ) native Terry Moore. Moore first became interested in the ideas of Marx while studying in Edinburgh in 1971.
She began working with the Irish Anti Nuclear Movement in the 1970s and subsequently joined Revolutionary Struggle (Marxist Leninist group) that published an influential magazine entitled ‘The Ripening of Time’.
Terry Moore was active in the anti-H-Block movement in the 1980s as well as taking on the role as the secretary of the Irish Anti Extradition Committee. In addition she became a member of Sinn Fein’s Education Department working alongside Rose Dugdale and Jim Monaghan.
During the 1990s Moore became a community activist in Droichead Nua working on projects including the Bealtaine Arts Festival, Culture Factory and the Michael Garry House (for the homeless).
She is presently voluntary literacy tutor and secretary to JuneFest.
This is her story, in her own words.
