We would like to express a big thanks to our ElectricAid members, staff and pensioner alike, for their support and generosity over the past 6 weeks.

Retirement of Gene Coyle, HV Stations, Navan. / Brian Gartland
After 43 years’ service in ESB, Gene Coyle is retiring. Gene started off his career as an On-Call Electrician in Kells. When the Kells Depot closed, Gene changed his base to Navan and from there, worked on NRP for a number of years. He then moved into HV Stations, where he has spent the last 15 years of his career. Gene has gained the admiration and respect of his colleagues over the years. His depth of knowledge and his easy manner will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have encountered Gene over the years. We wish Gene a long, happy and healthy retirement.
Gene’s retirement function will be held in the Newgrange Hotel, Navan on Friday 31st May at 8pm. We hope to see you there.
If you wish to contribute to Gene’s collection, please contact Malcolm McDonnell (087-2197093), Frank Tunney (087-4198062) or any HV Stations staff member.
