ON what was a bittersweet occasion, a cheque for €5,520 was presented to children’s charity Bumbleance by Carrigaline man Derry McSweeney, who retired after 45 years of loyal and dedicated service with UCC General Services and Security.

The sum was raised during a Christmas fundraiser organised by UCC Security, of which Derry has been an essential part.

Having joined the Works Department in 1970 as a Departmental Operative, Derry switched to General Services/Security in 1979 where he remained since. Derry was widely known throughout UCC for his good humour and helpful disposition, always having a smile and an enjoyable story and was only too willing to share his anecdotes and experience with others.
