Cllr. Noonan, former Mayor of Kilkenny, was Chairperson of the Susie Long Hospice fund from 2010 to 2012.
A personal friend of Susie, he has been a support of the Fund since its inception. Malcolm has been involved in environmental and community activism since the age of 14 and served on the Board of Friends of the Earth Ireland for eight years.
Malcolm's other passion is music and has served in many of Kilkenny's seminal bands over the past twenty-odd years and is still holding down an almost equally long Sunday night residency in the Pumphouse Bar, Kilkenny!
