Adrian Lane’s Retirement Ennis / Alan Hogan
Adrian has decided to call it a day after 43 years service on Friday 11th May.
Adrian joined the company as an Apprentice in 1975 being based in Rosbrien at the time. After successful completion of his apprenticeship Adrian worked as a Cable Jointer in Limerick and also as a Cable Jointer in the biggest project at the time in Ireland, the construction of Moneypoint.
He then transferred to the Area Office in Ennis, which was based in Carmody Street at the time. He worked as an Operator/Areas NT until the present. He successfully applied for an On Call position in 1985 and contributed more than 30 years of On Call service to the Company, a huge achievement in itself sacrificing many a family event and Christmas dinner in order to restore supply to many, many customers over the years.
Adrian was heavily involved with the TEEU over his career and acted as a Committee Member, Secretary and Chairman of the Limerick No 2 Branch. He was the Safety Rep for Ennis and was Chairman of the Midwest Safety Committee for a term.
Adrian and his Family are holding a celebration of his career in ESBN on the 29th of June in The Old Ground Hotel in Ennis and have asked me to extend their invitation to all his colleagues both past and present to come and share a good night to mark the occasion. Congratulations to Adrian and Chris and best wishes for the future.
Mick Roche (Rosbrien, Limerick) is Leaving / Eugene Gardiner
Our friend and colleague Mick is leaving ESB. Mick departs to greener pastures and fairways this week.
Mick’s career in ESB spans 43 years from when he joined as an apprentice electrician in Limerick in 1975.
Mick was appointed to Tipperary Area in 1980. He transferred to his present position in Stations & Cables in 1989. Mick made a major contribution to Cables & Stations Limerick and was involved in all works from LV to 38kV. Mick’s knowledge, dependability and wit will be missed by all.
Mick plans to have a get together on the 1st June to mark his time in ESB and the start of a new adventure for Mick, Margaret and family. We wish Mick & Margaret a long healthy & happy future.
