Ireland
Irish Regional Chair, Geoffrey Parkinson retires.
For a number of years now, the interests of the Institute in Ireland, where we have many members, have been looked after by Geoffrey Parkinson. Geoffrey served his time and worked in the building industry most of his life and was directly associated with the CITB in Northern Ireland for many years.

Geoffrey also served as NFRC Regional Manager in Ireland where he greatly enhanced NFRC presence and activity.

His contribution to the growth and development of the Institute has been considerable, opening up the entire Irish roofing market to IoR membership.
The Institute of Roofing would like to acknowledge this debt and wish Geoffrey a long and happy retirement.
