    To watch just one of the many stories of why participants walk from Darkness Into Light, click the link here.
    Johnny and Gertie Fox are one of the thousands of participants of Darkness Into light who have a moving story to tell. However, what makes their story different is that they were a part of the Pieta committee that created the idea for Darkness into Light in 2008. What then started with 479 participants in one venue, Darkness into light has since grown into a global movement of 200,000 people strong across five continents thanks to the help from people like the Foxes and the thousands of volunteers and participants who contribute to #ThePowerOfHope.

    Celebrating Ollie Brogan’s ESB Career / Maureen Ferguson
    After over 40 years, Ollie is bringing his career in ESB to a close at the end of May. Ollie joined ESB in 1978 and started his career here as a civil design engineer. He was awarded a master’s degree for his work on flood estimation for design assessment of ESB’s hydro dams and also holds a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering.
    Ollie then left engineering to progress a wide and varied career in almost every part of ESB. He worked as a Senior Logistics Manager in Materials Department, was the manager of Central Stores, and was the Sales and HR Manager for ESB Retail. He worked as ESB’s Marketing Manager and led the Demand Side Management Programme while in this role. He moved to a senior role in corporate change and was the HR Manager in Power Generation. Next stop was as Head of Corporate Affairs and then he moved to Head of Customer Supply (now Electric Ireland).
    Ollie came back to ESB International in 2007 when he became General Manager of Engineering Solutions. Following a period as Acting HR Director, Ollie became the Managing Director of ESB International in 2011. This is a role that brought Ollie back to his roots in engineering while using his marketing and negotiation skills to win new international contracts. This was also a time of major investment in ESB Networks and Generation & Trading.
    Ollie has made a huge contribution to ESB during his career and I hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend Ollie’s presentation and to wish him well in his new chapter. Ollie’s presentation will be made by Pat O’Doherty, ESB Chief Executive, and will take place on 31st May at the Engineering and Major Projects office at 1 Dublin Airport Central at 4 p.m. This will be followed by a BBQ in the Radisson hotel.

    Retirement of Liam Bennett, Governance Manager, People & Organisation Development / Noeline Gibbons
    After a distinguished career spanning almost 40 years, Liam Bennett, Governance Manager, People & Organisation Development, has decided to retire.
    In 1980, Liam commenced his ESB career as a Civil Engineer initially assigned to Civil Works Department before moving to Shared Services, Networks and finally Corporate Centre. Throughout his career he has held a variety of technical, specialist and senior leadership positions culminating in his current role as Governance Manager. Liam has made an invaluable contribution to ESB and his integrity, modesty, expertise and good humour have inspired others and are the signature of his success.
    Liam has made many long standing friendships in ESB and will be missed by all. We have all enjoyed working with him and wish him every happiness and success in the future.
    Liam would like to invite his friends and colleagues to an informal farewell in the Waterloo Bar, 36 Baggot Street Upper, Dublin 4, on Wednesday 29 May 2019 from 5pm onwards.

Our very own Tommie Childs will be part of the Limerick setup with a tricky away fixture in Semple Stadium to neighbours Tipperary on Saturday evening. Tommie is an NT based out of Rosbrien in Limerick. Last year he was part of the Networks team from Limerick who were narrowly beaten at the semi-final stage of the ESB 7s tournament to eventual winners Leopardstown Road. As a towering, powerful midfielder he also played an instrumental part in bringing the Energy Cup back to ESB in November in the annual challenge with Ervia / Bord Gais.
    On the hurling front, one of our most recently appointed staff members, Caolán Conway will be involved with the Dublin Hurlers on Saturday evening as they take on Kilkenny down in Nowlan Park.
    Caolán joined Electric Ireland as recently as Tuesday this week and I’m sure we’ll hear lots more about him in the future. Ádh mór ar Tommie & Caolán.
    Elsewhere there is other action on Saturday:
    Wicklow v Kildare (Leinster Football)
    Clare v Waterford (Munster Football)
    And on Sunday:
    Roscommon v Leitrim (Connacht Football)
    Wexford v Louth (Leinster Football)
    Meath v Offaly (Leinster Football)
    Tyrone v Derry (Ulster Football)
    Galway v Carlow (Leinster Hurling)
    Waterford v Clare (Munster Hurling)
    Cork v Tipperary (Munster Hurling)

    Geek fact:
    The most All Stars won by any Derry player has been 4, won by both Tony Scullion and Anthony Tohill. Our own Derry man, Kevin McCloy of E&MP, picked one up in 2007 (at full back). Kevin was also an accomplished hurler and played for the Derry team that won its first Ulster title in 2000. However, he concentrated on football from 2001 on after being called up to the Senior Football squad, making his championship debut at full back against Antrim
