    Farewell & Thanks

    Thank you from Dave Richardson, ESB Networks / Dave Richardson
    I want to express my sincere thanks to colleagues past and present who made my time with ESB from 1978 to 2021 so enjoyable and rewarding.
    I was amazed and overwhelmed at the number of phone calls, text messages and emails that I received from colleagues in the lead up to my retirement and greatly appreciate every one of them.
    I want to especially thank those who dialled in to the MS Teams call on Thursday 18th, where it was great to see and hear colleagues past and present and also reminisce over some of our past adventures. Hopefully we will mark the occasion by having a celebration drink when the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
    Finally, I want to wish all my ESB friends and colleagues the very best inside and outside of work and look forward to seeing you in the not-too-distant future.

    Farewell & Thanks

    Val Warren is retiring /
    After 42 years of dedicated service Val Warren is hanging up the toolbelt, closing down the computer and is retiring on 4th March 2021 with his last day in “the office” being Friday 26th Feb 2021.
    Val has had a wide and varied career starting as a General Worker, and in recent years has worked as the ESBN’s Business Process Improvement Manager and has become known to many as the Sharepoint Guru. His knowledge and his experience has been invaluable over the years.
    Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to celebrate Vals retirement in person at the moment, however, no doubt there will be a session to celebrate his career as soon as restrictions allow.
    We thank Val for his hard work, dedication over the past 42 years and wish him a long, happy and healthy retirement.
    So as he rides off on his motorbike into the next chapter of his life, Val remember …..retirement is not the end of the road, it’s the beginning of the open highway. Enjoy your upcoming trip!

    RIP

    Michael Wroth is retiring on Friday 12th Feb / Enda Harrington
    Michael Wroth is retiring to his workshop – his last day in ESB is this Friday 12th February!
    Michael spent the first part of his career in his native South Africa, where he worked in the rail, chemicals and defence industries. Michael made the big move to Ireland and joined ESB International in the summer of 2004, basing himself in the Eastgate Office, and delivering multiple projects for the Substation Design Group. He also became a card-carrying Corkman, even gracing the terraces of Turners Cross! He moved to the Physical Design Standards Team in 2012, where he has been an invaluable source of design advice to many designers and has contributed greatly to standards development.
    He will be missed by those who’ve worked with him, both for his professionalism and for the humour he brings to his work, and we wish him and his family well for the future.
    We hope to celebrate Michael’s retirement with an “in-person” event as soon as restrictions allow.

    RIP
