LISMORE HAS FOND MEMORIES OF TOWN CLERK, ERIC FLYNN
Lismore is still in a state of shock after the sudden passing of town clerk, Eric Flynn, who died on Sunday, May 23 last.
Eric was an immensely popular town clerk, and was very much liked and respected by all who dealt with him. He worked with Waterford County Council in a number of departments before the Lismore area office was opened in 1982 where Mr Flynn served as the administrative assistant to the area engineer.
The Avondhu spoke with Mayor Bernard Leddy, who had worked with Eric for many years: “Eric was a very quiet and efficient town clerk, always in good form. He could see humour and irony in the most difficult of situations.
"Eric was also an officer with the Lismore fire brigade. He always did his duty as he saw it, and everyone respected him. Lismore town has lost a great ally and son, and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
Cllr Jan Rotte, who worked with Eric for over four years, told The Avondhu, “Eric was a tremendous town clerk for all the councillors. He was a mine of information and had advice on everything in relation to the town council.
"It will be very difficult to replace him. Eric was also very active with St. Vincent de Paul, always helping the elderly and less well off. His passing is a big loss to Lismore town and our sympathies are with his family.”
