Do you know anybody who worked in Black & Decker in Kildare?

A reunion is being organised for people who worked in the famous Black & Decker plant in Kildare town in the 1970s and 1980s. The US industry giant saw hundreds of local workers pass through its doors on Melitta Road. The DIY corporation was a major employer in the town and provided livelihoods for a generation of families. A 30th anniversary reunion of past employees is now being held and organisers are trying to locate everybody who worked in the plant. The event is being hosted in the Cill Dara Golf Club on November 21.
