Cyril Loughlin – Charity Fundraiser update / Cyril
Hi again! I just wanted to say a massive and humble ‘Thank You’ for your exceptional generosity and support for my 5-day charity cycle last week. It WILL make a real difference as you can see from the research finding that was announced in Chicago as we climbed Caha Pass on Sunday last. Between 500 and 600 Irish women will now be spared the trauma of chemotherapy, annually, as a result of the study’s outcome – see here …. how great is that?
The trip from Malin Head to Mizen Head, with 72 colleagues from my club, went very well. I was pleased to be in a sub team throughout with Paul Gallagher and his partner, Wendy. Paul lost his wife in 2007 as you can see from today’s Irish Independent (link) … inspirational! Some photos from the event are on view here: Photos.
My fundraiser page will be open for another wee while if anyone wants to support – click Please Donate. That’s it from me …. Míle Buíochas arís!
P.S. with ref to my earlier post ….. it’s not quite all downhill but is relatively flat until Kerry:-)
Thank You from Bernie Healy /
I would like to thank all my friends and colleagues (current and retired) across the company for the fabulous send off on Thursday night last. I really appreciate so many of you making the effort to attend my departure event on such a lovely summer evening, many of you travelling long distances.
I want to thank all of you who have called me, met me, sent messages, cards and gifts and all of you who contributed so generously to a presentation.
I also want to thank my colleagues who helped make my last two weeks in ESB memorable in every way.
I’ve had an amazing time in ESB for over 40 years and I wish the same for all of you. Good health and happiness for the future. Until we meet again. Best wishes
