Timber processing firm, Glennon Brothers, celebrated 8 long standing team players who between them have 250 years service with the company, at a function in the Longford Arms Hotel on Friday the 15th of February 2019.

Honoured on the night were John Campbell, Brendan Cosgrove, Gerry Cox, Greg Glennon, Breda Heaney, Larry Mullins, Seamus O Neill and Geraldine Reehill.

Speaking on the night, Pat Glennon, paid tribute to the 8 recipients, praising their loyalty, commitment, and ongoing dedication to Glennon Brothers. He recognised the bond that exists between the recipients and Glennon Brothers, noting that many of their children had followed in their footsteps to work in the company.

Also, speaking on the night, Mike Glennon, acknowledged “the legacy of great contributions from people who were no longer with us and who had dedicated their working lives to Glennon Brothers.

Without these contributions, Glennon Brothers would not have survived the many challenges it has faced over its 100 years”.

During the evening, each individual was presented with a bog oak sculpture hand-crafted by Kevin Casey from Newtowncashel Co. Longford.

The bog oak, carbon dated to between 3,300BC and 3,600BC is entitled “Great Oaks From Little Acorns Grow” symbolising the strength of the relationship between each of the recipients and Glennon Brothers and recognising their contribution to the overall growth of the company.
