Firefighter Driver/Mechanic Supreme John Sheahan Retires

Following twenty years of wonderfully dedicated service to Millstreet Fire Brigade Service as Firefighter Driver/Mechanic supreme John Sheahan of Mount Leader, Millstreet has recently retired.   At a reception  in Millstreet Fire Brigade Station in honour of John – visiting Fire Officers paid many tributes to John including the fact that the hugely high standard in evidence in his magnificent care of the Fire Engines has been exemplary and consistent over the twenty years.   Eamonn O’Keeffe speaking on behalf of the Millstreet Crew expressed sincere thanks to John for being such an inspirational colleague towards all the Crew over the years.  Special presentations were made to John and his wife, Anna in the presence of his Family where three generations were present.   Refreshments were enjoyed by all with some specially decorated cupcakes and a Retirement Cake impressing all present.   It is wonderful to also note that John is truly handing on the torch to his son Darren who will shortly be taking up his full-time position as Firefighter with Cork City Fire Service.   We extend our very best wishes not only to John on a very Happy, Healthy and Long Retirement but also to Darren in his new career.   Here we share a selection of images from the recent superb reception at Millstreet Fire Station.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
