View below some of the amazing appreciation Josie has received on LinkedIn since this article in the Irish World:
"I finally met the 'man behind the name' on a Gallagher tunnel drive at Beckton STW. It was great listening to him describing not only tunnelling during the 70's and 80's but also describing tunnel jobs in villages in South Yorkshire where I was raised. He still remembered the lodgings he was put in and the old lady and the food! As is with latter-day footballers - speaking to the older generation is absolutely fantastic. A truly great guy."
- James Durose-Ryaner, Editor - NATM Magazine
"Fabulous story. Josie is a true gent and indeed totally committed to his work. He is a pleasure to do business with"
- Robert Law, Managing Director - AGD Equipment
"Great story from a great man, I first worked for Josie in 1987 on the Bank Tube Station in London and many more since. With an empire this big it would be hard to walk away and he mentions footballers in his interview, maybe he is the Alex Ferguson of tunnelling!"
- John Doherty, General Foreman/Inspector
"He is a gentleman and always had time to stop and chat to you"
- Tristam Mayes, Director - Mayes Plant Hire Ltd
