Farewell & Thanks
Paul Clarke, NT Enniscorthy is retiring / Dan Mernagh
After 45 years’ service to ESB Networks Paul has decided to hang up his tool bag and clip board and retire. Paul has spent most of his career in Areas occasionally doing some Design work from time to time when the pressure was on and was the DTE in Enniscorthy for a number of years. Paul has seen a number of major events in his time in the Area. The ones that stands out are Storm Darwin and Storm Ophelia which caused major faults on the system and more recently Storm Ellen and Storm Francis where Paul and his colleagues worked tirelessly to restore power to all customers. Paul has been always customer driven and always put the Customer first. Paul was also the driving force behind the Ted Tierney and Noel McDonagh awards which were held yearly to remember both Ted and Noel. A prestation was held to acknowledge a Staff Member who went above and beyond serving the customer and also a presentation was awarded to an apprentice who excelled .Both were voted by Staff and Paul was the organiser, M.C. and Camera operator at the event with some help from his colleagues. The Tierney and McDonagh families hold Paul in very high regard. In recent times Paul has been surveying and mapping the LV Network in some of the larger towns in the Enniscorthy Area. This is to ensure his vast experience and knowledge is passed on the younger generation and to keep them safe. We would all like to wish Paul a long and happy retirement and to thank him for his contribution to ESB Networks over the last 45 years. Due to Covid-19 restrictions it is not possible to meet up at the moment an event to mark his retirement will be organised when circumstances permit.
Sleep out for Galway Simon / Deirdre Newell
I’m taking part in the Sleep Out For Simon this Friday, 2nd October. I will be swapping my bed for a sleeping bag, and giving up my usual comforts for one night in support of vulnerable individuals and families facing homelessness during this critical time of need.
Please bear in mind that I live in Galway and the chances of a rainy night are pretty high! If you would like to support me, https://www.idonate.ie/fundraiser/11391030_deirdre-newell-s-fundraising-page.html
