Ricky’s book will be a clas­sic story of lo­cal work­force

Drogheda Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IN the com­ing weeks, Ricky Ger­rard will have his new pub­li­ca­tion on the shelves and to say it’s spe­cial would be an un­der­state­ment.

‘In­dus­tries and Places of Em­ploy­ment of old and no so old Drogheda’ is an ab­so­lute trea­sure of in­for­ma­tion and has taken years to put to­gether.

And such are the ar­ray of busi­nesses fea­tured, the pub­li­ca­tion will be made up of three vol­umes in a book, at a cost of €40.

For that, you’ll get a life­time of in­for­ma­tion on so many great firms and names, from Wool­worths to Mos­ney, the DI, the Plug Fac­tory, Coca- Cola, Cairnes, the rail­way, Bis­sell, Gina G, IFF, BD, Cisco, Po­clain, Ce­ment, Ta­pes­tries Ire­land, the list just goes on and on. Ricky gave me a peak at some of the pages re­cently and this pub­li­ca­tion won’t dis­ap­point any­one.

But like all publi­ca­tions with such a di­verse range of con­tent, it needs fund­ing and that’s where the pub­lic come in.

Ricky is seek­ing peo­ple to spon­sor pages or sec­tions or pre-pur­chase copies, ev­ery­thing will help to get it done and dusted be­fore Christ­mas.

Tones night

All roads, or is it tracks, lead to the Pheas­ant on Novem­ber 16 for the Wolfe Tones GFC race night. The club is do­ing great work in that part of the town and the whole en­trance to it does the club vol­un­teers jus­tice.

Farewell to Vin­cent

TER­MON­FECKIN united in grief last week to say a farewell to Vin­cent McGlew.

His fu­neral ser­vice was one of the largest ever wit­nessed in the vil­lage of Ter­mon­feckin, with peo­ple, from far and wide, com­ing to of­fer con­do­lences to his wife Su­san and the fam­ily over two days.

Vin­cent’s ded­i­ca­tion to St Fechins GFC was also ev­i­dent with its former chair­man, John Sav­age, de­liv­er­ing a beau­ti­ful eu­logy .

The great St Fechins team of the 80’s helped carry their former col­league to his fi­nal rest­ing place in a trib­ute that just about sums up Ter­mon­feckin. Fam­ily.

Dave and Ruby star

I spot­ted Dave Ma­her and the one and only Ruby per­form­ing on RTE Ju­nior re­cently and it proved that the singing tal­ents of this fam­ily are well and truly se­cure.
