Mairead Scanlon has volunteered for the Bray Citizens Information Centre for 42 years.
Eamonn Burgess, chairman of the service, thanked her last week for more than four decades of dedicated service.
Mairead was a founding member of the Most Holy Redeemer Information Service, the brainchild of Fr. Paddy Lyons who realised people would benefit from getting information and help in a confidential way.
That service is now part of Co. Wicklow Citizens Information Service, with superb facilities way beyond the aspirations of the Management Committee in 1972 yet still providing one of Fr. Paddy's hopes to help people and families in crisis.
'I made lots of friends and enjoyed working with like-minded people whose aim is to make some contribution in such stark times.'
She went on to say that Bray CIC provides a 'wonderful service' and she thanked her fellow volunteer information providers and Development Manager for all of their support over the last 42 years. For more information go to www.citizensinformation.ie
