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.
Mr. Connolly is an Ouimet Scholarship alumnus, Director, Trustee and former President who has proudly served the Ouimet Fund for over 35 years. He is truly the embodiment of everything a Ouimet volunteer can be: for the past 34 years he has been the Chairman of the Francis Ouimet Memorial Tournament, he has been the driving force in starting and sponsoring the Francis Ouimet Award For Lifelong Contributions to Golf Annual Banquets and he has created an endowed Ouimet Scholarship in his family’s name, amongst countless other things.
The Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund would like to congratulate Mr. Connolly for this wonderful honor and would also like to thank him for everything he does for The Fund!
