Mem­o­rable day as Drogheda man An­thony Moore S.C. ‘takes silk’ and is called to the In­ner Bar

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

BAR­RIS­TER An­thony Moore, son of the late Michael and Mona Moore, has been ap­pointed Se­nior Coun­sel by the govern­ment and was called to the In­ner Bar by the Chief Jus­tice, Frank Clarke, last week.

Ap­point­ment to the po­si­tion of se­nior coun­sel is given to bar­ris­ters who have a proven ca­pac­ity for ex­cel­lence in the prac­tice of ad­vo­cacy, ex­cel­lence in the prac­tice of spe­cial­ist lit­i­ga­tion, and spe­cial­ist knowl­edge of an area of law.

As the Chief Jus­tice noted, this year’s cer­e­mony was a his­toric oc­ca­sion, held re­motely for the first time on ac­count of the pan­demic. It saw Moore, along with 19 other col­leagues, ‘ take silk’, a ref­er­ence to the silk gowns worn by mem­bers of the In­ner Bar.

Moore, a grad­u­ate of Trin­ity Col­lege, Dublin, Cam­bridge Univer­sity and King’s Inns, has been prac­tis­ing for 19 years at the Bar and spe­cialises in ad­min­is­tra­tive law and ju­di­cial re­view, con­sti­tu­tional law, hu­man rights law, and EU law.

Speak­ing to the Drogheda In­de­pen­denT, he said: ‘I am re­ally hon­oured and de­lighted to have been el­e­vated to the po­si­tion of se­nior coun­sel. It’s one of great re­spon­si­bil­ity and I look for­ward to help­ing serve the in­ter­ests of jus­tice be­fore the courts in the years to come.’
