In 1975, Pat and his family moved back to Athens County to fulfill his dream of teaching vocational agriculture at his alma mater school – Federal Hocking.
It wasn’t long before Pat was helping his uncle, C.E. “Ed” Sheridan, in his auction business. Ed had been a successful auctioneer in the area for many years. Pat completed his apprenticeship and received his license in 1978. Because Pat felt the Athens area was Ed’s territory, he continued to work with Ed as needed but waited until Ed and his wife, Thelma, retired from the profession in 1983 to begin advertising and building his own reputation. Shamrock Auction Service is recognized as one of the premiere auction firms throughout southeastern Ohio.
