How Insurance Has Changed For Me In The Last 24 years


Seems hard to believe it’s 24 years since I joined a small and dedicated team at Sheridan Insurances. At the time there were only two working in Personal Lines Insurance, selling car, home and van insurance.

The insurance rates were calculated manually using individual insurance rating guides. Technology was a calculator and electric typewriter, no Google or spell check. We had a computer but we only used it to type up letters. We had a filing system that actually contained paper files, no scanning back in those days, no emailing, everything had to be faxed to insurance companies for cover.

While technology has moved on massively and Sheridan Insurances now have 3 offices in Wexford, New Ross & Kilkenny, the family ethos remains the same. With customers need and personal service always the priority.

Paddy Sheridan established the business in 1964 and is an inspiration to us all. We all work as a team and that’s what keeps you going, next thing you know 24 years have passed in the blink of an eye. Here’s to the next 24.


Just to give you an idea, Bryan Adams ‘Everything I do’ was in the charts when I started in Sheridans. That doesn’t seem like that long ago, time flies..
