Patrick, a native of Sligo, is the Depot Manager at Top Oil’s busy depots in Ballina and Castlebar. Patrick manages a team of 24 people on site and has been with Top Oil since 2009, overseeing the busy depots in key strategic areas for Top Oil. Patrick was awarded this honour of Top Oil Person of the Year in recognition of his consistent dedication and hard work ethic at Top Oil, in spite of ongoing personal health challenges in his life.

The Kilkenny depot, based on the Hebron Rd, has a staff of 17 people, and is a very busy facility in the region for Top Oil. The Kilkenny depot beat off stiff competition including from previous winners Galway, to be crowned Top Oil Depot of the Year this year.

Gerard Boylan, Chief Executive of Top Oil, commented on the award wins; “I am delighted to present these awards to Patrick Cleary and the Kilkenny Depot team. Patrick is a loyal, hardworking and enthusiastic member of our Top Oil team in the western region, who has consistently delivered despite his recent health challenges, and is a worthy winner of this award.

Similarly, the team in the Kilkenny depot have shown hard work and dedication over the past year, and the high levels of customer service they deliver to our customers in Kilkenny and surrounding areas is a testament to them. At Top Oil, recognising our outstanding employees is very important to us, as they act as ambassadors for our company when dealing with our customers every day, in retail sites and when delivering to our customers.”
