About John Malone
The early years
John was born in Dublin. At eight years of
age he moved to Boyle, County
Roscommon when his father, a member of
An Garda Siochana, was stationed there.
He completed his secondary school
education with the Presentation Brothers in
nearby Carrick-on-Shannon, Country
Leitrim. After secondary school he worked
in administration in a major garage in
Emigration – TV experience
Opportunities were few and after three
years like many others of his and other
generations of Irish people, he tasted the
bitter cup of immigration when he had to
move to London. There he worked with
London Underground and the fledgling
rival to BBC, Independent Television; thus
at close quarters and before many others
he perceived the influence a controlling
few could have for good or ill on the
shaping of public opinion and mores.
Built His Own Business
In due course he returned to Ireland and
for the next couple of decades he was in
sales traversing the country in succession
selling to the beer trade or selling
insurance or animal feed stuffs. Eventually
he went into business on his own in the
latter sector and over twelve years he built
up a thriving company. Subsequent to
selling that he eased into the quieter waters
Built and fostered relationships
Over the course of his working life John
developed a great regard for the owners,
operators and staff of Irish family
businesses. People who at the outset were
his customers quickly became firm friends.
He came to see that the small family
businesses were pillars of rural and
suburban Ireland and the conduit to fair prices for Irish farmers and producers. Which in turn gave real value to the consumer.
Disenchanted by developments
From extensive travel he saw how that
pillar was valued on continental Europe
but year on year his dismay grew as he
saw it disregarded by Ireland’s
modernizers and misguided new thinking.
A rallying call to others
He is now establishing CTVI as a platform
where likeminded people can congregate
and work towards re-establishing a true
Christian ethos. It will have particular
appeal to the diaspora and all who yearn
for a truly Christian way of life.
