Carlow County Council official retires after 42 years

Tributes have been paid to Director of Services at Carlow County Council, Bernie O’Brien, who has this week confirmed her retirement after 42 years of public service.

Bernie began with Carlow County Council in 1977 and has worked her way to the top of her profession in her native county.

Paying tribute, Senator Jennifer Murnane O'Connor said: "Bernie resisted moving to other local authorities and therefore gave of her time and expertise to the people of Carlow."

"As a member of Carlow County Council, I worked closely with Bernie O’Brien. Bernie was always very approachable and most helpful. I wish Bernie a very happy and healthy retirement and thank her for her dedication to County Carlow."

Cllr Andrea Dalton also paid tribute to Bernie. She said: "Bernie carried out her many roles within the Council over the years with professionalism and unstinting commitment and dedication. She will be sorely missed. Wishing Bernie a long, healthy and happy retirement."
