Our Story
Séimí Brennan was a super hero. Séimí inspired us to run the Dublin marathon in 2017 in his honour raising nearly €12,000 and every penny of that was used by Make a Wish Ireland to grant precious wishes to special kids in this little hero’s name!! 2018 Challenge:
This year Eoin and Barry have taken on a bigger challenge to help keep the wishes coming in! Craziness or madness has set in and we have decided to run 2 marathons in just 2 months!!! We will tackle the high hills of Dingle in September and Streets of Dublin in October 2018!! We are willing to put the hard yards in and train hard to try do Séimí proud and most importantly raise as much money for Make a Wish Ireland as possible! Séimí’s story:
Séimí was diagnosed with a brain tumour just a few weeks after he was born. Séimí battled bravely through surgeries, chemo and all his treatment. He charmed everyone who was lucky enough to meet with his cheeky smile.
Make a wish organised for Séimí, his Mammy Orna, Daddy Dave and little sister Nia to go away on holidays sadly just before they were due to leave Séimí became too unwell to travel. On the 3rd of September 2017 Séimí aged 3 years, shed his demons and grew his angel wings. He is now at rest.
All € raised by our page will be donated to Make A Wish Ireland in the name Séimí Brennan and all wishes granted with this will be in little Séimí’s name. Please help us hit our €5,000 target! 4Séimí
Thanks all
Barry & Eoin 👍

People Leaving

Retirement of Eamon O’Donovan, EO, Clonmel Area /
Eamon O’Donovan is retiring this September after 44 years service. Eamon has worked out of the Clonmel depot for the vast majority of his time in ESB. Having started in Service repair Eamon went on to spend many years in the Group (CS) section working at subs and cables. He went on to finish his career as an EO. Eamon has given great service during all of his time with the company. His efforts and personal interactions have resulted in him being well respected by all that have had the pleasure of working with him.
Eamon will not be putting his feet up after September. He will no doubt redirect his energies to his love of farming at home. And as a family man he will enjoy the extra time he will be able to spend with them, and all of his friends.
To mark this occasion, Eamon would like to invite his many friends and work colleagues to a function in Barne Pub, Cahir Road, Clonmel on the 1st of September at 20:30
