Welcome aboard Cian
Meet the team No. 3: Jovita Butkeviciene
Jovita Butkeviciene has been with The James Griffin team since 2007.
While Jovita was born in Lithuania, she spent most of her life growing up in Ballivor, so she is now one of us. Jovita seems to have ten pairs of hands and works on wheels!
Jovita is so hard working and dedicated and always gives 100% to her job and is so highly thought of by staff & customers alike.
Meet the Team No 2: Aidas Riauka
Aidas was born in Mazeikiai in Northern Lithuania. He arrived in Ireland as a young man in June 1999. Aidas aka ‘Amigo’, ‘Little Tom’ and many more names joined The James Griffin winning Team in 2009.
No job is too big or too small for Aidas and his helpful and obliging nature has earned him many many friends in Trim and beyond! As he says himself ” the people just like me I can’t help it”!!!
Do you think they will name a street after him in Trim and if so what would it be called ???
Meet the Team 1:
Sharon McMahon: Manager/Events Co-ordinator
Sharon joined our winning team in August of 2013. She is the ‘ meet & greeter! ‘ or Front of House always welcoming you into the bar with a warm greeting and a smile. She also makes it her mission to look after all our Party and Event Guests with the utmost care and attention.
She can be spotted doing ‘ laps ‘ of the pub on a Saturday night, making sure ” all is as it should be “everywhere, it’s been said she is so good at this by now that she can be in two places at once!
Sharon is a very dedicated and hard working member of the team @ The James Griffin and we appreciate her as much now as we did the first day she walked through our doors. Thanks for the memories Sharon and we’re sure there will be many more to come!
