Posting to Instagram on November 4th, Richard wrote: "This day last week I was with my colleagues at the Irish Law Awards where I won Lawyer of the Year. This would not have been possible without a great team supporting me."

He became well known on TikTok and Instagram in recent years for educating people on legal issues, with his classic send-off "that's the law and that's a fact" becoming legendary.

In the moments following the announcement of this death, several friends of the much-loved solicitor paid tribute to him on social media.
