Farewell & Thanks

Thanks from Dave Byrne on his recent retirement /
ESB has been a great place to work over the years (mostly 😁) with great opportunities and great people. It has been my pleasure to work here and to have met with all of you over the years. In the run up to my recent retirement following 40+ years with ESB, I was overwhelmed, surprised and delighted with the countless calls, emails, texts and Whats Apps I received which were full of heartfelt good wishes for my retirement. The virtual Teams retirement ”do” on 1st July was fantastic. Both my wife Lily and I thoroughly enjoyed it and we’d both like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your participation and contribution to a lovely event to mark my retirement. Hopefully when the COVID situation improves we can meet in person and have a pint and a bit of craic and if you’re ever around Wexford be sure to give me a shout. Thanks a million for everything and farewell for now. Dave & Lily

Tony Donovan is retiring / Killian Morgan
After 40+ years with ESB our esteemed colleague Tony Donovan is set to depart from ESB on 17th September.
Tony’s early career followed a familiar path starting as an apprentice in the Cork region in 1978 and, having qualified as an electrician, he began working in the Appliance Repair activity. Following that he moved into the Contracts team dealing with domestic and commercial wiring and substation maintenance. In 1992 Tony, became an EO, initially in the cable records, acquisition team before moving to the EO Design team in the Cork region in 1997.
Tony had developed an increasing interest in IT and completed various City and Guilds courses in the subject area and went on to obtain a BSC Diploma in Information Technology from DCU in 2001. This was to stand him in good stead as he moved on to the next stage of ESB career where he spent several years seconded to major IT projects playing a key role in the design and implementation of new applications of technologies such as Geodart (our first digital CAD system for design) and SAP through the MOIP (Market Opening) project which was followed up by a year in the SAP support function.
Following a second stint as a design EO, Tony found his true calling as a member of the Commercial and Regulation team in 2007 and his wealth of experience, expertise and attention to detail has been invaluable to all parts of the business ever since. There can be very few ESBN staff who have not benefitted from Tony’s wisdom throughout the years and as well fielding queries from management, staff, customers, regulators and all sorts of other interested parties Tony has developed and delivered detailed courses for staff on the practical application of Commercial Policy and the myriad associated Regulated Documents.
He will be sorely missed by colleagues not just for his expertise but his kind personality, his sense of humour and his authentic alternative take on all issues of the day. As you will be aware, we are unable to have a conventional leaving event but will be getting together to say goodbye to Tony via Teams on Thursday 16th at 5pm. We wish Tony and Assumpta all the best for a long, active, healthy and happy retirement.

RIP
