Sadly after a long and unfortunately never winnable illness, Victoria the founder of McLeish Optometrists has passed away.
We will miss her every day – I was married to Vicky for only 22 years – though we together for 28.
She will be missed by many family members and friends, including the staff here – Neasa did not know Vicky before coming to work for us, but that was over 11 years ago. Sandra was Victoria’s friend for a long time before she came to work for us.
I guess that we will have a few days being closed, and perhaps a few more days of no testing, but after that, and more than ever, please do not be a stranger – no business will survive if no-one wants to call in because they may feel awkward.
We have all known about Vicky’s diagnosis since 2007, and we all knew that one day, it could take her away from us.
Please just give us a few days to get back to “normal”, and then do not hesitate to call us or call in.
Victoria Louise (Martin) McLeish 06/09/1971 – 25/07/2019
Christmas Time, again.
As usual we are going to be closed between Christmas and New Year, our excuse being that we can get no deliveries until the New Year. Though that is actually true!
This is the only time I am personally guaranteed to get some time off, and that time at home is very precious, particularly this year.
We will be having a staff Christmas meal on Friday 21st in the afternoon, so we will be closing at 1pm, or perhaps shortly after? on that Friday, and we will be gone until January 3rd.
(Scottish people are genetically unable to work on January 2nd).
We may see you in the Bailie Hotel on Friday afternoon, but after that we will see you in 2019.
Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays to be more politically correct?
Ho Ho Ho!
Happy Holidays from Ian, Neasa , Sandra and Victoria.
(once again, in alphabetical order!)
Many thanks to all of our clients – no business is anything without you, after all!
We wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas, and onwards to year 2019 and beyond!
Please, please remember to NOT sleep in your contact lenses- it may have been a great night out, but your next day or two in hospital may not be so great? It is not worth it – for more information in case of an emergency, please click this link.
As you will know Thursday is our late night – we are usually open until 8.30pm.
Due to staff holidays and a parent teacher meeting at the Bailiborough Community School we will be closing at 5.30pm this coming Thursday 29th.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused – I have no option.
Apologies to anyone trying to contact us this early afternoon – Neasa became aware of internet issues at roughly 12 pm, but neither of us noticed that we had no dial tone! Perhaps we did have a dial tone then, but I was back in after a trip to collect a child in Cavan and there was no dial tone. Calling the line did nothing inside, but seemed to ring normally at my mobile end.
If we did not answer the phone to you – it didn’t ring!
Tried to contact Eir by phone, but faults only seem to occur in normal business hours – Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm. The fault has been reported online, but we have no idea when they might get round to fixing this.
If there is no luck by Monday morning, we will advise a different contact method.
