Longford timber processing firm, Glennon Brothers honoured two long standing staff members at a recent function at Longford Rugby Club.
Ireland and UK sales representative Aidan Curran, who recently retired from Glennon Brothers after 27 years with the company, and Joe McLoughlin, who this year celebrates 50 years in a number of different roles at the Longford plant, were the evening’s joint guests of honour.
Both men came in for noteworthy praise from their bosses and fellow colleagues on the night.
Mike Glennon, Joint Managing Director, paid tribute to Aidan Curran as a pioneer of home grown timber whilst acknowledging his commitment and dedication to the company throughout his near three decade long association with the company.
Fellow Joint Managing Director, Pat Glennon was just as wholesome in his admiration for Mr McLoughlin, paying testimony to his professionalism, flexibility, and adaptability over the years.
Mr Glennon also acknowledged “the legacy of great contributions” former deceased members had made to the success of the business since its foundation.
“Without these contributions, Glennon Brothers would not have survived the many challenges it has faced over its 99 years,” he said.
The evening came to a close with a presentation by the company to each individual to mark their achievement.
