“Having seen Moy Valley through the ups and downs of the last three decades, Denis is now leaving behind a lasting legacy. But we are delighted that he will continue to sit on the board and to share his vast depth of experience and knowledge”, concluded Mr. Dwane.

CEO of Moy Valley Resources, Annette Maughan, also paid tribute to Denis.

“Denis has had a great relationship with everyone in MVR, including the executive and the board, and he has been completely committed to our organisation over the years,” she said.
