Nationwide search for oldest worker
FRIENDS OF the Elderly, in association with TV3, are starting a nationwide competition to find the oldest working man and woman in every county in Ireland.
‘We want to highlight the benefits of having an older person in the work force,' said Dermot Kirwan of Friends of the Elderly Ireland.
Six finalists will feature on Ireland AM on the weeks of April 11, 18 and 25.
The winners will be announced on Midweek on Wednesday May 4 at the start of Bealtaine Festival Month celebrating creativity in old age.
The overall winning male and female worker will receive an all expenses paid weekend break at Kelly's Resort Hotel and Spa, Rosslare.
Older people who are nominated must work at least 20 hours a week.
If you think you know the oldest working person email your nomination with a short description of their average working week to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information call (01) 8731855.
