    Stephen Ryan retires today, 7th Oct / Ted O’ Connell
    Stephen Ryan has decided to move on to the next chapter, following 44 years of dedicated service to ESB. He retires exactly 44 years later, on the date he entered the company. Stephen Started his career in Gracedieu on the 7th of October 1977, rotated through all aspects of work in the old Waterford district, especially enjoying UG cable and HV station work. He qualified in 1981, started in Stations dept. Waterford, worked on the upgrading of Arklow 220kV stn., meter security and Group operations on the UG system.

    In 1984 he seconded to the Electricity Supply Commission in Zimbabwe spending three happy years on operations and fault hunting in the African bush and doing the occasional cable joint!
    1987, he returned to ESB in Waterford and resumed his fascination with the underground system. He then moved to Network Projects in Gracedieu in 2002, working on asset replacement, maintenance and upgrading of the system from LV to 220kV. In 2010 he moved back to his spiritual home in underground construction Waterford as temporary supervisor. In 2011 he moved to HV Stations Waterford after the realignment of Networks, returning to station work and the odd cable joint!

    An opportunity to return to the world of underground cables came in 2015 when Stephen was appointed as Technical Training Officer in the Networks Training Centre, Portlaoise.
    Since then, he has imparted a huge array of his knowledge and experience to others through his role as Training officer. He now has plenty of time to pursue his interests in cycling, rowing, sea kayaking, motor bikes and trad music. We wish Stephen a long, happy, healthy retirement as the next chapter of his journey begins.

    Retirement of Michael “Haulie” Leamy / John Seale
    On Friday October 8th Michael “ Haulie “ Leamy will retire after more that 47 years dedicated service. Michael’s career in ESB stretched from Transmission to Area Linesman, Security and finally Lifting and Handling Inspector. Michael found his home as Lifting and Handling Inspector where his many skills were put to excellent use. On behalf of all his colleagues we wish Michael and his family a long happy and healthy retirement.

    Retirement of Siobhan Hand / Anne-Marie McDermott
    After over 43 years of dedicated service, Siobhan Hand will be retiring from ESB on Thursday, 14th October 2021. Siobhan joined ESB and started her career in Cost and Management Unit, Chapel Street, Dundalk. She gained great experience right across ESB, through her work in Payroll Unit, Revenue Unit, Consumer’s Unit and most recently in Project and Fixed Asset Accounting. Siobhan was instrumental in the roll out of the new Cashier system to all Cash Desks. More recently, she was also involved with the introduction of SAP4 Hana, where she is an expert in all things SAP related.
    Siobhan’s calmness, thoroughness and extensive knowledge have been invaluable, and she has made a noteworthy and positive contribution to the success of ESB. Her absolute persistence and doggedness when it came to tackling difficult queries has been much admired and appreciated by all her colleagues. She is a reliable source of advice, not just in work related matters but in personal matters as well.
    Siobhan’s friendly personality has ensured that she made many good friends amongst staff (both past and present), right across ESB. (Indeed, she still remembers most of the staff numbers, although it’s been quite a while since she worked in Payroll). Siobhan will be missed by all, particularly her friends in Avenue Road, Dundalk but most especially, by those of us in the Project and Fixed Asset Accounting Unit.
    On behalf of everyone, we wish to thank you Siobhan for the huge contribution you have given to ESB, over the course of your career. We will miss your calmness, your friendship, the chats, the recipe sharing, sound advice and not forgetting: the delivery of those Tommy Cooper One-Liners! We hope you enjoy the extra time to devote to your golf game, to pounding the pavements of Dundalk and of course, babysitting your four beloved Grand-Children. We wish you good health and happiness to enjoy every minute of your retirement with your husband Ciaran (Customer Solutions, Swift Square), your sons Niall, Fergal and Ronan, your grandchildren, extended family and friends.
    Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, it is not possible to celebrate Siobhan’s retirement with her, in person, as we’d really like to do. However, we look forward to celebrating with Siobhan, later on, when we can give her the proper send-off that she so deserves. Very good luck to you Siobhan – we will really miss you.

    A note from Colm Smith on his retirement (delayed post) / Garry Cosgrove
    Dear friends and colleagues, After 42 memorable years I will retire from ESB this Friday October 1st. Before I go I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you that I worked with, dealt with or met over the years for the assistance, kindness and courtesy you have shown to me. ESB has been a really great place to work and it is the people who work here that make it so. There are many reasons why ESB has been a really good employer to me and I would particularly like to acknowledge the company’s supportive approach to the development of its staff which I availed of particularly in my earlier years. In modern times some careers can see people seeking work in different countries and different continents. I managed to stay closer to home starting and finishing in Clanwilliam House (half a mile from where grew up) with stints in the Personnel Building on Mount Street and Head Office, all of which are within a stone’s throw of each other. I am a little disappointed that I cannot have the customary ‘do’ on my departure night and I hope to hold one when the restrictions allow. It’s a small inconvenience but nothing compared to the hardship and suffering Covid has caused for so many. I wish you and your families health and happiness for the future. Best regards, Colm

    Rioghnach Buckley retires on 8th Oct / Ger Brennan
    After over 40 years of dedicated service our colleague, Rioghnach Buckley is retiring on Friday the 8th of October.
    The contribution that Rioghnach has made to the organisation and the number of friends she has made over her career is testament to her hard work and warm, caring personality. Also, the contribution that she has made to many and varied voluntary groups ranging from Savvi Credit Union, member of the social and medical group to the chief organiser of our Lotto group, savings group and social outings.
    As the last of the Covid-19 restrictions are still in place, a proper retirement event will take place later in the year.
    In the meantime, on behalf of all current and former colleagues and friends in ESB, we all wish Rioghnach good health and happiness to enjoy her retirement with her friends and family. We hope you get to fully enjoy every minute of your retirement and the many adventurers and holidays that you have planned.
