The Stoneybatter Pride of Place Committee and the entire Stoneybatter community are deeply saddened by the passing of Richard Taplin. Richard was an absolute diamond and total dynamo.
To honour his spirit and love of music we are determined to make his Stoneybatter Festival events, Stoneymatter’s ClarkesVille and his pride and joy Community Garden (Family Fun Day June 23 Manor St.) to go ahead in his honour.
Thank you to his family and friends and to Clarke’s City Arms and all the amazing musical acts who really want to do this for Richard.
It’s time to roll up the sleeves and make this happen!
Richard was a local legend and as he sets up his PA system for that great gig in the sky we will all do our best to create a musical stairway to heaven all weekend.
