David says a fond farewell to Smiths garage after 53 years

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

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

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 when 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 vehicles.

David has a great individual sense of humour, a keen eye for a racing pigeon and a great man for a tip!

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