St. Vincent de Paul project worker, Vinny Woods said a final farewell after ten years of charitable service.

Vinny, who began working at community resource centre Ozanam House in 2005, celebrated his retirement in the Ferrycarrig Hotel on June 20.

Over 40 people attended the event including former colleagues, family and friends.

According to John Coady, manager of Ozanam House, Vinny was an asset to their team and he will be greatly missed.

'He is an extremely efficient and dedicated worker,' said John, who was the main organiser of the event. 'He didn't want to retire!'

Vinny's role required him to work with homeless men through helping them to tackle social and addiction problems. He is also a former member of the Wexford Homeless Action Team, a group who meet once a month to discuss possible soulutions to the problem of homelessness in the county.
