Bus Éireann’s Athlone depot team was celebrated during the company’s annual GEM awards ceremony.
Pauric Wall was recognised for his role as supervisor for school services where he treats both drivers and customers (students and parents ) with respect. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Pauric made sure that school buses were always equipped with enough sanitiser and that school transport was always available.
Tom Kenny was awarded for his outstanding work as a mechanic on the Athlone town bus service and local school buses, making sure that Bus Éireann passengers in Westmeath can always be assured of a safe and comfortable journey.
In congratulating the winners, Stephen Kent, Bus Éireann Chief Executive Officer noted that 2021 had been a landmark year for Bus Éireann.
“I would especially like to recognise Pauric and Tom, who have been awarded specifically for their demonstration of Bus Éireann’s core values. Pauric for his commitment to our customers and for the support he provides to colleagues and Tom for keeping Bus Éireann’s fleet in Westmeath on the road each and every day,” Mr Kent asserted.
