Brendan Moran (former ITAA CEO) RIP


It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of former CEO of the ITAA, Brendan Moran on 12 July 2020. Brendan was an extremely popular industry professional and was instrumental in bringing the tour operators and ITAA together during the late 90’s in the days of massive charter capacity cuts and distribution issues. Brendan was all things sport and one of the toughest competitors on the golf course winning many a TIGS outing and Matchplay trophy along the way.


His real passion was GAA and was the former Chairman of Ballyboden St Enda’s. The tribute to Brendan on the Ballyboden St Enda’s website really says it all.


Brendan was a man of huge integrity, passion, compassion and good humour, and he will be greatly missed by all in Ballyboden St. Enda’s. He was a true club person, remarking on his election as Chairman that it was the highlight of his sporting career. A mark of the humility of the man is that he spent his first days as club chairman painting the pillars at the entrance to Páirc Uí Mhurchú. In his tenure as Chairman, Brendan sowed seeds and built a culture within Ballyboden St. Enda’s the fruits of which will benefit the ‘Boden community for generations to come.


Brendan coached football teams in the club and latterly managed the senior B hurling team as well being the board delegate for the hurling section. Everything Brendan did was done with great attention to detail, was done properly and was done to the very best of his ability. People easily recognised Brendans’ integrity and genuine good nature and he was universally loved by young and old within the club. I know that the players on the Senior B hurling team have huge regard and affection for Brendan Moran, and ‘Boden sidelines will not be the same in his absence.


We offer our condolences and sympathy to Brendan’s family on the loss of their dad, grandad & brother.
