Daly, was a columnist and poet whose “Rhymes and Ripples” column was a popular feature in the Evening Bulletin.
Molly is an avid birder, amateur naturalist, and fan of British folk-rock pioneers Fairport Convention, singer/songwriter/guitar god Richard Thompson, and English pop band XTC. A cat-lover,she also supports spay-neuter programs and the adoption of shelter animals.
