Loving tributes flow for David Gallagher

FRIENDS and family have taken to social media to honour the memory of David Gallagher, affectionately known as Davey, who died at an unauthorised 'rave' event last Sunday.

Kyaila Nolan, who said he lived in the same neighbourhood as the 24-year-old Green Pigeon man as a child, wrote:

"Rest well in the starts my brother.

"I will always remember some of my best childhood memories with you.

"You were the kid down the road who was so fun and adventurous. I could barely keep up with you.

"You made me laugh and my family smile and laugh. I will always remember you.

"You played a huge role in who we are."

A picture of a sunset in Ballina served as a symbolic tribute by Elysia Piliero, who wrote of the former Byron High School student:

"This sunset is for you tonight David Gallagher.

"Today the world lost a beautiful soul and a soul that was far too young to be take.

"I know we hadn't seen each other or spoken in a long time but thanks for the good times and all the laughs.

"People will remember your love for life and living it to the full, and the way you could light up any room with that infectious laugh."

The property owner who hosted the unauthorised event at Newton Boyd was issued a $3000 fine by the Clarence Valley Council on Thursday.

The council vowed to take legal action in future against any landowner who hosts a similar party on their property without proper approval.

Police are investigating if a drug overdose was the cause of Mr Gallagher's death.
