Bus Éireann director stepping down from role at Shannon


David McGarry has stepped down from his position as chief financial officer of Shannon Group.

He had been with the semi state body for three years, and is also a non-executive director of Bus Éireann. Mr McGarry is understood to have left Shannon Group before Christmas.

A spokeswoman for the group said Mr McGarry had stepped down to pursue other career opportunities. She said that Mary Considine, Shannon Group’s company secretary, had taken over the responsibility for the finance function within the group.
