Farewell & Thanks
Retirement of Brian Hegarty, Networks Dundalk / Mary Kehoe
After 42 years of dedicated and loyal service to ESB our good friend and colleague Brian Hegarty is retiring and his last working day is Friday 28th May. Brian started his career in ESB as a young engineer on 2nd October 1978 and after a few weeks in Dublin was sent down the country to the West of Ireland. He spent the next 2 years involved in OH line design and construction in Tuam and Galway. In 1980 he came back to Dublin and spent almost 3 years in Urban Planning Section in Distribution Department. In 1982 he headed for the Northwest following his appointment as group engineer based in Sligo and then in May 1987 headed for Letterkenny where he took up the role of CSE Area Operations. He has spent most of the 34 years since then looking after the customers and staff in Donegal finishing out his career as Area Manager Letterkenny / Killybegs. There are very few projects and programmes delivered in Donegal which he hasn’t had an input into and some of the most memorable ones are from the Celtic Tiger boom years, the Binbane / Letterkenny / Ardnagrappy 110kV project and the move to the new offices in 2008. Brian is very well known and respected for his professionalism, his vast knowledge & technical expertise and his commitment to the customer and also to his colleagues in Donegal and further afield. Due to this he has been asked to be involved in many projects over the years including MOIP and most recently in producing the MV / LV OH line procedures. He is always very willing to share this knowledge with others and has been a great support & help to all in the North West and across ESB Networks over the years. During his career in ESB Brian has worked with many wonderful colleagues and made many lifelong friendships. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to celebrate Brian’s retirement in person at the moment but an MS teams call will be held on Friday 28th at 11:30am to mark his last day at work. If you would like to be included on this call please email mailto:email@example.com. On behalf of all in ESB I’d like to thank Brian for his many years of hard work and dedicated service. He will be greatly missed in ESB, however we wish him and his family a long and happy retirement.
