Ray retires after 44 years service
A popular Nenagh man who has worked for 44 years in the postal service has retired.
Tribute has been paid to Ray Meagher for his long dedication to the job by the Cathaoirleach of the Nenagh Municipal District Cllr Séamie Morris, a colleague who worked with him in the local postal service.
Said Cllr Morris: “As a work colleague and as Cathaoirleach of the Nenagh Municipal District, I would like to thank Ray and wish him a very happy retirement after 44 years of service to the postal system.”
Cllr Morris noted that Ray started work at Nenagh Post Office in 1975 at 17 years of age as a telegram boy.
“Since then he has given sterling service to the customers of An Post. He has seen a lot of change since then, but his attention to quality of service has never diminished, particularly when businesses and our customers depended more and more on the postal service during the Covid pandemic.”
Cllr Morris noted that Ray also gave sterling service in different positions in the Nenagh branch of the Communications Workers Union, particularly when members required help and when workers’ rights needed to be supported.
He said Ray's last year of work was particularly busy as the postal system came into its own from the onset of the pandemic last March and stood the test of time when the country needed it most, whether it be checking up on our elderly customers or as a way of people communicating with each other and indeed helping many businesses keep afloat as they went online.
“The fact that Ray has served An Post for for such a long time is an incredible testimony to his loyalty to the company, which is something I feel needs to be applauded,” said Cllr Morris.
