This week KC Print bids farewell to Jacek Zakrzewski. Jacek officially retired two weeks ago after 16 years’ loyal service to the company

Jacek Zakrzewsk has retired from KC Print and The Killarney Advertiser after 16 yers loyal service

.

He made one last journey to KC Print and Killarney Advertiser to bid farewell to his work colleagues before he embarks on his journey home to Poland.

Shortly after arriving in Ireland Jacek joined KC Print and quickly made Killarney his second home.

He joined the company as a finishing operator and quickly expanded into the pre-press department.

His attention to detail and calm and systematic work ethic made for smooth-running of the pre-press department.

His dedication to the company and to his job was a constant.

Being an outdoor enthusiast, Jacek and Killarney hit it off from the word go.
He nailed the ‘work life balance’ whether it was biking or hiking, walking or running, Jacek was a familiar face in the National Park. Jacek could be seen participating in a park run one day and up Cardiac Hill the next.

There was neither a walk nor trail that was unknown to Jacek, most if not all explored.

Jacek’s appetite for the history of Killarney was so in-depth that he was able to engage knowledgeably in local historical conversations whilst occasionally correcting some misguided local in the process.

Jacek was responsible for laying out (imposing) and producing the printing plates for the print production including the Killarney Advertiser.
While going about his own job, from time to time he would catch an incorrect spelling derived from local or Irish backgrounds. A local would be forgiven for some, but they never got past Jacek!

Jacek was very active in both the local and Polish church communities, publishing a Polish church newsletter for a time.

Jacek is returning home to his family in Poland this weekend and we wish him safe travels. Jacek will be missed by his work colleagues and all he came in contact with within the community. Killarney became his second home, so we expect many return visits during his long retirement ahead.

On behalf of the management of KC Print and Killarney Advertiser, we wish Jacek a full and active retirement. See you soon…
