It is with deep sadness that I acknowledge the death of Pierce Molony, Racecourse Thurles. He was a real gentleman and true friend. Pierce was a loving devoted husband to Riona and an incredible father to his daughters Helen, Patricia, Anne-Marie, and Kate. With his family he was truly blessed. Pierce was a great character with a lovely personality; warm, kind, caring with a unique sense of humour and boundless generosity.

Pierce had a passionate interest in the bloodstock industry with a particular love of National Hunt. He was a fountain of knowledge on all racing matters.

He was very proud of Thurles racecourse and the role it played and the contribution it makes to the racing industry. Pierce, over his lifetime, had built up an unrivalled expertise, knowledge and experience on the maintenance of racing ground and took great pleasure in having it in perfect condition irrespective of weather conditions.

He will be sadly missed by his family, a legion of friends and the entire industry.
