See The Hub for more info. The MPF Office is currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions but we will be pleased to answer any further query you may have in relation to your rebate once normal office operations resume. Stay Safe, MPF Team
Message from Mick Dillon on his retirement / Virgil Porter
I am retiring in June 2020 but with annual leave my last day at work is Tues 28 April next,
To all my great colleagues and friends in ESB during the past 43 years – I had hoped to see you all before I finished but Covid 19 put a stop to that. I have enjoyed every minute of meeting, working, tea-breaking and socialising with you all. I am grateful to you for your friendship, tolerance, advice, help, laughs, heartbreak !! lack of patience and fun along the way.
I will miss my colleagues in ESB, but now I’m looking forward to pursuing new ventures, such as waking up, woodturning, walking, DIY, vintage machinery, washing up, going off-grid, learning new skills, mopping floors but not cooking dinner Monday to Friday. I wish you and ESB every success in the future.
Continued good health to you all in this crisis time but remember life will get back to normal and you will go down in history as the generation who survived and kept the lights ON. Keep the Big Mixer rolling. Stay Safe and Well.
