Thank You – from Jim Molloy, Leopardstown Rd. /
I would like to thank everyone who came to my retirement night in Bray Golf club on the 15th June & made the night so enjoyable for me & my family. I was overwhelmed with the huge crowd that turned up with many retired ESB workers making an effort to be there. Thanks also to all those who were unable to attend on the night but kindly rang, text or sent cards to wish me well & apologise for not being there. Thank you also for my beautiful retirement gift which I will treasure & for Mary’s bouquet of flowers. I really do appreciate the great send off you gave me.
