Fond Farewell & Many Thanks to David!

Smiths of Drogheda say a fond farewell and a huge Thank You this week to David Corrigan, our After Sales Manager who retires on March 16th.

David joined Smiths on 8th of December 1964 and in his 53rd year with our company has seen huge changes over the years.

He started working under the late Paul Mohan back in the day as an apprentice Mechanic and has worked his way up through the ranks to command his position as After Sales Manager and Workshop Controller.

A popular member of staff David has embraced all kinds of changes over the years from the days were Mechanic’s were actually hands on diagnosing and fixing engines to the current level of qualified Technicians who understand the electronics and computer systems that now operate our Cars.

David has a great individual sense of humour, a keen eye for a racing pigeon and a great man for a tip! He has the heartiest laugh of anyone and you cannot but smile when he gets going!

We will miss you David and wish you, Bernie and the girl’s health and happiness to enjoy a well earned retirement or whatever you decide to do next.

Dave Pimlott, After Sales Director Ford Ireland, presented David with an award in recognition of his long service to the Ford Brand.
