FLOW’s Niall Sheehy peels open LIME deal – staff did not know until night before

Niall Sheehy may have married into the Caribbean and forged a new generation of Sheehy’s for the region, but he’s lost none of the Corkish charm from his hometown of Ireland.

Niall Sheehy

We got to experience this first hand when grilling him on one of the top stories of the year… Mr Sheehy spared a few moments to enlighten Bajan Reporter concerning a deal which has rocked the Caribbean – after a year and a half of wowing customers and pulling 70-thousand subscribers from LIME, Columbus Communications (FLOW’s parent company) has been sold after a decade of providing excellent service and superb customer relations…

Yet here’s the kicker, it’s to the very company losing revenue who’s now in the process of acquiring its greatest rival since Digicel in 2004. With screams of “Monopoly!” rearing its ugly head – the CEO of FLOW spared some moments for Bajan Reporter and in the video handled some tough questioning, like…

  • How soon did staff learn of the move before the public?
  • Is it true that Columbus and Flow were dummy corporations which were LIME pawns all along?
  • What about FLOW’s pending┬ácellular application?
  • Will both FLOW & LIME staff keep their jobs or does a merger mean a further shedding?

Niall’s composure remained intact through the entire interview, a lesson most Barbadian MP’s should seek to acquire when asked uncomfortable queries, and he fielded these salvos and others with aplomb and alacrity, as you can view for yourself;-

Questions are captioned in the video itself, so you have an idea what I said (I did it since I sound like a zombie frog now, due to a cold)…
