My meeting with Joseph O’Connor took place in his office over his supermarket business in Nenagh Shopping Centre. In the first part of this interview, he talks about his strong religious beliefs. We focused again on his early days in the grocery business and how he always supported local produce, which was of a very high quality. He was a member of the County Council for 18 years, and of the Town Council for 20 years. He spoke about his love for Lough Derg, and his days swimming in the lake. I recorded some fascinating stories about his time spent with the LDF. He spoke very highly of the people of Nenagh, and the great camaraderie which exists between the business people in the town, which has always been the case. This interview provided a great account of how one man’s success can benefit an entire community.
