Concord's Connolly Honored by National Children’s Research Center in Dublin
The "Richard Connolly Microscopy Centre" was officially announced last week in Dublin, Ireland.
The following announcement was provided by the Liberty Square Group.
Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin, Dublin and the National Children’s Research Centre in Dublin, Ireland last week announced they have renamed their Microscopy Centre in honor of Dick Connolly, managing director and wealth advisor at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney in Boston.
The “Richard Connolly Microscopy Centre” was officially announced Sept. 11 at the 30th Annual Children’s Medical & Research Foundation, Inc. Golf Tournament, which Connolly, a Concord resident, has hosted since its beginning in 1982.
“Over the past 30 years, Dick Connolly has raised over $4 million, which has significantly enabled the vital work at the National Children’s Research Centre,” said Joe Quinsey, chief executive officer of the Children’s Medical & Research Foundation. “We cannot thank Dick enough for his incredible support, dedication and loyalty to the cause of sick children, and we wanted his efforts to be recognized in a tangible, sustainable way. We have, therefore, chosen the most important and highly-equipped part of The National Children’s Research Centre – the Microscopy Centre, to name in his honor.”
The Children’s Medical & Research Foundation is the principal fundraising body for Our Lady’s Children's Hospital Crumlin, Dublin as well as the National Children’s Research Centre, and is dedicated to working to improve the quality of life for this and future generations of sick children.
