ETTA Dukes of the Tralee Citizens Information Office has been helping the people of Tralee and Kerry with their problems for more than two decades and last month her long service and years of dedication were recognised at a ceremony in Dublin.
Ballinorig native Etta was one of 18 long-serving staff who were honoured for their service to their communities at a special event organised by the Citizens Information Board and the National Association of Citizens Information Services.
Her generous contribution and hard work was held up as example to all and she received a certificate and a commemorative bowl to mark the occasion.
Based in Tralee Citizens Information Centre, Etta has filled many roles, primarily working as an Information Provider, in her many years with the service.
Kerry CIS Manager Frances Clifford said she was delighted to see Etta's hard work and dedication recognised.
"Etta is an invaluable member of the Kerry Citizens Information team, her empathy, sincerity and respectfulness of others confidentially is always apparent," Frances told The Kerryman.
She is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure her customers get the information and support they need. We are delighted her contribution has been formally recognised," she said.
