I read with sadness your recent tribute to Richard Moloney and I am writing to pay my respects and to add to his long list of contributions to the local community.

Richard was chair of The Buttery Board of Management for a number of years and together with Fiona Brophy he was very active in fundraising in the Byron community to assist the work of The Buttery. I have fond memories of Richard in a full tuxedo, hosting a fundraising dinner with sweat pouring from him under the hot tin roof of The Balcony as he auctioned works of art from local artists. Always with a smile and repartee, no matter how challenging the circumstance, he was a man whose presence and contribution to the Byron community will be sorely missed.
