    Jim Wynne
    To my colleagues and friends in Electric Ireland and beyond, as you may know, I retired from ESB/Electric Ireland in January, and I will always look back on my time there with great fondness.

    I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to everyone for their good wishes on my retirement and to those of you who gave me such a good send off on 25th January. Sincerely, I really enjoyed the night, and it will live long in my memory for all the right reasons. Thank you to the planners (schemers) who worked so hard to make it all happen – I just wanted to acknowledge your efforts on my behalf it was so very thoughtful of you all. I was overwhelmed by your kind words and humbled by your generosity. To those I did not get to speak with before I left, I’ll hopefully catch up with you in the future.
    I have been fortunate to work with great people during my career in Electric Ireland and elsewhere in ESB. Thank you for all the camaraderie, the support, and the happy times.
    It has been an exciting time to be in the industry and I look forward to watching ESB lead the charge in the face of new challenges.
    I wish you all good luck and hope that we keep in touch throughout the years ahead. Kind regards and best wishes for the future.

    Announcements

    After 44 years of commitment and service to ESB, Eugene will retire on the 8th February.
    Eugene joined ESB in 1980 as a General Worker. He qualified as an Electrician and worked his way up to an Electrical/Civils C.O.Ws and promotion to Project Supervisor on the Southwest Stations project. He embraced change, transferring to CPG and moving into EMP . Throughout his career, Eugene has been at the forefront of transformation, inspiring those he worked with to embrace new technologies. So, it is apt that his final position in ESB is Deployment Contractor Manager on the Smart Metering project where he contributed significantly to the success of the project.
    I am sure you will join me in congratulating Eugene on his retirement and wish him the very best of health and happiness. We will miss his quick wit, his steady presence and all his expert knowledge. Best of Luck Eugene on the next stage of your life journey….on the golf course!

    Farewell & Thanks

    Dear Colleagues,
    After over 44 great years in ESB it’s time to move on to my next phase in life and with a certain amount of sadness, Friday 2nd February will be my last working day in the company. Looking back at the various roles I have had since I started in Bellacorick Power Station in 1979, to my time in Moneypoint and then Procurement, it all seems like a blip in time. But when i think back in detail and reflect on the many great people throughout ESB that I have had the privilege of working with and learning from I feel a very lucky person and will be forever grateful. I will cherish the many friends and acquaintances I have developed both inside and outside of ESB and hopefully these friendships continue as I now focus on more challenging tasks such as entertaining grandkids, lots more cycling, travel. etc!!
    A big thank you to all who I have had the pleasure of journeying with, and I wish you all and your families Health and Happiness. Tommy
