THE last tax disc bought from the Enniskillen tax disc has, perhaps rightly so, gone to a man who worked with the office for the best part of 30 years.

Sean McCrory, 63, who owns Phoenix Registrations in Belleek, has been travelling to the Enniskillen office up to three times a week for the past thirty years, and was the last customer when the tax office closed on Thursday last.
Operations are moving to Swansea, Wales, with the loss of jobs locally.


Sean, while expressing his disappointment at the closure of the office, was also pleased to come away with a momento of the business he has shared with the office.

“We’ve had dealings with the Enniskillen office or 30 years,” Sean told the Fermanagh Herald.

“Here you’d have personal contact – the staff were very good. In the early days we’d have been dealing with them quite a lot, but recently we’ve been dealing with them and Omagh.

“So we’d be there once, twice, three times a week.”

He explained the atmosphere in the office on the last day: “Obviously they’re not happy because they’ve been there a long time themselves.”

As for the tax disc, Sean, when asked if it was down to his own timing, smiled: “Well, kinda.”

“I was the last customer in. It’s nice to get it – it’s good to have. It’s the last tax disc issued from here – it makes a good photograph!”
