The Turkey Run 1968‘Inspector of Agents’ was the grandiose title that Tim had. He worked for a prestigious general insurance company based in Dublin and his function was to call on established Agents of the company in order to develop business introduced by those agents, to collect their accounts, to handle their claims and generally foster the interests of the company. He also had to promote good relations with the more important clients in his area.A client in this latter category happened to be an exporter of poultry and poultry products who had his business in a town some thirty miles from Dublin. Over the years Tim, who provided exemplary service to his clients, became on friendly terms with him and on a routine P.R. call, around Christmas, he was presented with a turkey – free of charge. Not only that, but the client told Tim if any of his colleagues required a turkey for Christmas they could avail of a substantial discount on same.
