Well earned Retirement. In today’s world most workers look forward to their retirement after 40 years of employment and for some the stress of modern work and living makes them take early retirement. But when we hear of someone who retires after 51 (fifty one) years in the same employment then it speaks volumes for both the employer and the employee. Seamus McKenna retired recently from Silverhill after 51 years and the employers marked the occasion with a presentation. Covid restricted the type of presentation but I’m sure Seamus would not be one for anything more formal. The presentation was made by Michael Briody, CEO. and Peter McConnell, Farm Technical Manager. Michael spoke of Seamus’s great work ethic and thanked him for his work and support for Silverhill over the years. He wished him well on behalf of all and hoped that he had a long and enjoyable retirement. In reply Seamus recalled his start with the Steele family and how he enjoyed working for them. He said he had seen many changes in the size of the plant and all the new technology that was introduced, which altered the type of work. However he stressed that the one thing that did not change was the respect he had for his bosses who in turn treated the workers with respect. He enjoyed his time in Silverhill and he thanked all his co-workers for their friendliness and support. He had special mention for those who worked closely with him, some of whom worked beside him for many years and became great friends. He also thanked his wife, Marie, and his daughters for their great support through the years.
