Teresa Cowman marks her retirement from Johnstown Castle after 36 years
Though Teresa Cowman loved every minute of her 36 years at Johnstown Castle, the Foulksmills native decided that it was finally time to call it a day.
Teresa, who worked as a technician with the Johnstown Castle Environmental Research Centre, was delighted to be joined by old friends and colleagues for her retirement celebrations. Over 80 people came to the special occasion at the Riverbank House Hotel to celebrate with the popular lady.
'It all went exceptionally well,' said Teresa. 'A huge number of retired staff came out to join me and that really made it.'
Teresa started her career in Trinity College where she qualified in the biochemistry department. She later got married before returning to her Wexford roots. Fresh from her retirement celebration, Teresa said she is now 'delighted' to be off.
'I feel that I have worked hard all my life,' she said. 'It will take a while to get used to my routine but I have plenty to do now. I play golf so I hope to improve on that. I also play bridge a few nights a week.'
