Thank You From Pat Germaine

On behalf of my wife, sons and extended family, I would like to thank Electric Ireland and ESB for the wonderful send off on the 6th of May.

Thank you to all those who sent cards, emails, texts or left phone messages.
The turnout in the Waterloo was amazing and it was wonderful to see so many former colleagues on the night.

I would like to thank Paul for his kind words and sense of humour, and also a huge thank you to Gerry and his Finance team for all the research and photos that were part of the presentation.

I would like to thank Aine, Marie and Sean for co-ordinating events in the Waterloo, including flowers, cake and the excellent sound system.

Could I say a special thank you to Nuala, Aine and Anne Marie for the fantastic collection and sincerely hope that no legs were broken, or threatened, in the process!!

Finally, could I express my admiration for those that were still standing at 2.00 am, and later. I’m truly impressed by your stamina, particularly those that still managed to fulfil their commitment to the Darkness into Light walks in the early hours of Saturday morning.

We all enjoyed what was a wonderful night. I would like to wish you health and happiness in the future and hope to maintain contact over the coming months and years.

Thank you,
