Ballyclare man, Henry Turkington, more famously known for his international boxing success, celebrated 25 years with Dennison Commercials along with fellow worker John McAllister.

Henry fought at international level and won the Ulster and All-Ireland Light Middleweight title in 1963 and 1964.

After retiring from boxing, he was offered a job with the company by managing director Roy Ireland in June 1988.

Henry said: “I’ve loved every minute of it and I hope to be here a while longer yet.”

Henry and John were both presented with Raymond Weil watches for their service by current managing director John Jenkins.
