    Award winners: Style champs for 40 years

    PETER MARK, Ireland’s leading hairdressing group, honoured 120 of its employees for their valued contribution and long-standing service to the company.

    The Long Service Awards recognised employees from salons across Ireland who worked at Peter Mark for 10 years or more.

    Honoured in Kilkenny were Karina Gibbons, Emma McCarthy and Sarah Jane Quirke.

    Between them the girls have 40 years’ experience in Peter Mark Kilkenny.

    Karina was recognised for 10 years while Emma and Sarah were both recognised for 15 years contribution. All three work in the Peter Mark MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre Hairdressing Salon.

    Of the 120 honoured, the average length of service was 16 years but many were celebrating even more significant milestones.

    Among those receiving top honours was Cathal Keaveney, Head of Education and Professional Development at Peter Mark who has been with the company for 30 years.
