Cork Examiner 17 June 1908

Funeral of Captain Michael Moloney, Dungarvan

The remains of this respected and influential citizen of Dungarvan were laid to rest on Wednesday in the cemetery of the Parish Church. Not indeed for a long time has such a death occurred in our midst that evoked such widespread regret….As an employer he gave work to numbers of families, and his business was of so vast an extent that it embraced large commercial transactions with people far away from our midst. As a ship owner he recently met with some trouble in having two of his fine fleet of vessels lost, and what rendered the occurrences more sad was the…loss of life, a melancholy fact which caused the deceased much anxiety.

The remains were conveyed from the residence Priory House…to the Catholic Church…and no list of names could give adequate representation of the vast assemblage that came to pay their last tribute…The entire town was present…and people came from far into the country, for they were all connected in trade with the deceased.  The coffin was borne by the sailors in the employment of the deceased…On Wednesday morning Office and High Mass were sung for the repose of the soul of the deceased.

The chief mourners were: John J. Moloney, Michael Moloney, Thomas and Joseph Moloney (sons), Monica and Ida Moloney (daughters); Rev. T A Moloney O.S.A., London (brother); John and William Farrell, Frogmore, Youghal (brothers-in-law); Thomas and William Farrell, Cork (nephews); E and May Doherty, Kilmallock (nieces); Mrs Dee, Edward Dee, Mrs and Miss Galvin, Youghal, etc.
