Retirement of Paul Hickey, Head of Systems and Sustainability, ESB Networks / Denise Fannin
After a very distinguished 39-year career in ESB, Paul is taking inspiration from his most recent role and making the ‘smart’ (boom boom) decision to retire. Paul started his career at the top end of the voltages when he joined Transmission Department and with that experience, worked in both TO(D) and also on a number of overseas assignments including Saudi Arabia and a year in Bahrain. Having conquered transmission, he then moved down the voltage tree and joined Distribution Dept. in Osprey House in 1990 and from there relocated as ESM to the West Region in Limerick in 1993. When he returned to Dublin in 1997, he took up a role as the Employee Relations Manager for Networks, before moving out of the capital again as Customer Services Manager for the South East. He then managed the PR3 process as Regulation and Commercial Manager before subsequently becoming the National Operations Manager. Paul took up his current position of Head of Systems and Sustainability in 2014, managing ESB Telecoms Services, the Networks Property portfolio, Metering and Data services and both Smart Networks and the Smart Metering project.
Paul would like to invite his current and former colleagues and many friends t a function to mark his retirement in The Epic Restaurant in The Grand Canal Hotel, Dublin 4 at 6.00pm on Thursday 21st September. Anybody who would like to make a contribution to Paul’s retirement presentation should contact Denise Fannin on 5th Floor in Clanwilliam House (ext. 26632).

Retirement Peg Healy, Meter Rdg Dept, Wilton / Tim Keating
Peg’s Retirement Party
The Rendezvous Bar, Friday 8th September @ 8pm.
Peg Healy is leaving us, to enjoy her free time, life in ESB will never be the same, another wonderful character gone from our every day.
The new girl from Donoughmore in 1977 turned out to be one of the back bones of ESB’s administration. Her work ethic was second to none, if there was a problem she would solve it no matter how long or how difficult it was, in fact, the more challenging the better for our Peg.
From Revenue in Patrick Street, Stores in Wilton, and of course, where she really came into her own, Meter Reading Unit, Peg was the “go to” person. Her knowledge and experience are invaluable! She is famous in the Meter Reading community country wide. ESB will never see the likes of her again.
All of the above was always carried out with a great sense of humour. Testament to this is the sight of her canteen friends returning to work with tears streaming down their faces from laughing at her entertaining views on current affairs.
She loves a debate, I mean loves!! From the Sunday Independent (which she must have inhaled) to the previous night’s Vincent Browne show, Prime Time, you were never in doubt as to what was going on in the world. The entertainment industry was like prime fodder to her, always referring to the antics of celebs, leaving us all cracking up.
We will miss Peg greatly, it was an honour and privilege to have worked with her, but we wish her health, wealth and happiness for her future.
Peg is looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible in The Rendezvous on Friday 8th September to raise a glass in celebration!
Vincent Leonard Retires / John Finnegan
After a career span of 45 years, 37 of which were in ESB, Vincent has finally decided to hang his last meter this Friday, September 8th.

Vincent has been the ultimate gentleman to both customers and colleagues alike, and has built up many friends over the years. Vincent would like to mark the occasion with a party in the Leopardstown Inn this Friday (8th Sept) as 5pm and invites all his colleagues to attend.
If you would like to be associated with the presentation to be made to Vincent on the night, please contact Chris Raythorn, John Finnegan, or Rioghnach Buckley.
