I was a mechanic in Lisbon, so this was my first job in Longford. It was out at Goshen with MNS Plant. It was a heavy plant; too heavy for me. So for 2 years, I worked in Edgeworthstown at cars with James Shaughnessy.
Then I moved to Eric Norton who has a Mercedes garage near Ballinalee. I was with Eric for 3 happy years. Eric was really helpful and a huge influence on me and my life. I can’t ever thank Eric enough. He’s a sound man and still an excellent friend. Actually, I refer to him as Daddy; and that says everything really.
