Ambitious Workshop Scheduled for Omeath
Wednesday December 17, 2003 22:29 by Sean Crudden - Cooley Environmental and Health Group sean at cooleyehg dot com Jenkinstown, Dundalk, Co Louth 042 93 71310
Manufacturing "Green Machines"?
Workshop to explore the chances of starting an industry based on the manufacture of "green machines" for harvesting renewable energy from the natural environment.
A workshop is defined in Collins English Dictionary as:-
"A group of people engaged in study or work on a creative project or subject: a music workshop."
Participants in the CEHG (Cooley Environmental and Health Group) fourth annual Winter Workshop will include Tommy Connolly, Jack McQuillan, Peter Mulligan, Larry Staudt, Eric Hynes and Sean Crudden.
The theme of the workshop this time is "Fabrication, Machinery, Dundalk and the Environment."
Tommy Connolly is a former player, manager and assistant manager with Dundalk FC. He also coached a number of underage Irish international teams. Currently an instructor with FAS, Tommy will deal with training and the quality and quantity of engineering skills around Dundalk. Tommy was a participant in the last workshop ("Personal Energy") organised by the CEHG when he gave a lively presentation on personal fitness.
Jack McQuillan is a journalist with The Argus and he is a former personnel manager with S&S. He will deal with the history of Dundalk Engineering Works.
Peter Mulligan is one of Bellurgan’s most famous sons (if not the most famous). He will deal with customer care and will detail his travels all over the world to install and service the large box-making machines manufactured in Dundalk by S&S. A former foreman fitter with S&S Peter has kicked ball with Bellurgan United AFC and is currently President of Dundalk Rugby Club.
Larry Staudt who participated in the last two CEHG workshops will talk in this one about "green machines" especially the prototypes developed in recent years in the renewable energy department of Dundalk Institute of Technology. Larry is the manager of that innovative department in DKIT.
Eric Hynes, a founder and director of the Hynes Brothers Furniture Manufacturing Company, is a former Captain of Greenore Golf Club and also served as President of the Club for a number of years. He defeated all the leading Irish professionals in a famous Pro-Am held in Greenore in the 1970’s and his perennial skills shone again this year when at the age of 74 he was the outright winner of a Singles Competition in Open Week at the Greenore Golf Club. He will deal in the workshop with the business philosophy of Hynes Brothers and how their furniture manufacturing firm got off the ground (in the early 60’s?).
Sean Crudden who is Treasurer of CEHG will act as facilitator of the workshop as he has done for each similar workshop held since 2000.
The workshop will commence in The Strand, Omeath at 2.00 p.m. sharp on Saturday 31 January 2004. Those wishing to attend as observer/participants should contact CEHG through their web-site www.cooleyehg.com or alternatively contact Sean Crudden.
Unfortunately CEHG, despite efforts going back over several months, have been unable to find a speaker who is able and willing to address in public the topic of "Public/Private Partnership" (as an introduction to the workshop). However the search continues and a suitable speaker will undoubtedly be found before D-day.
