The August Blarney & District Person of the Month is John McLaughlin
“I would like to nominate John McLaughlin from McElligott’s Pharmacy for Blarney and district person of the month.
I believe he deserves the nomination because of the trojan work he does and has been doing for so many years with a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone who crosses his doorway, people who may be in very difficult circumstances.
He carries out his daily duties completely unaware of how important he and his team are to the community of Blarney.
There is no request too big or too small.
He sails along under the radar making sure everyone has their prescriptions and everything else they need and always engages in conversations with polite, genuine interest enquiring about their lives and daily goings on.
I for one can testify that his constant smile and gentle ‘How are things with you?’ is sometimes all you need and better than any medicine he could dispense.”
And so say all of us!
