BURLINGTON SPORTSWEAR/ ATLANTIC MILLS EMPLOYEE REUNION FRIDAY JANUARY 20th 2017 (Venue will depend on numbers attending) Atlantic Mills Ltd, the dyeing and finishing operation for denim fabric, was located in Fisherstown, Clondra, Co. Longford. Formerly known as Burlington Sportswear Fabrics Ltd. the facility was built on a green field site in 1977 and production commenced in 1979. The company employed approximately 300 people and operated on a 24 hour day 7 days per week basis. Over 1500 people from counties Longford, Leitrim, Roscommon and beyond were employed over its twenty-year history before it closed its doors for the last time in 1999. Last month a new Facebook Page “Burlington/Atlantic Mills Reunion” was created by Angela Boland and Fr. Sean Kelly, OFM,Cap both former employees. It’s almost 18 years since the factory closed and sadly quite a few of those former employees have passed on to their heavenly reward. This reunion will also be an opportunity for us to remember them and give thanks for the friendships forged. The night of 20th January promises to be a night of fun with events pitting former departments against each other in quizzes and challenges as well as opportunities for some to revisit their weaving skills.As many former employees are not on Facebook we want to reach out to them and hope that by reading this they will make contact with Angela or Fr. Sean to confirm their attendance at this gathering. Contact: Angela Boland at 086 1963567, Fr Sean Kelly: 087 0550584 before 6th November to book your place
