Offaly business shortlisted for top awards

Garahys Garage Ltd in Birr has been shortlisted for this weekend’s Irish Auto Trade Awards 2019 in Citywest Hotel in Dublin.

Now in their 5th year, the awards are a celebration of excellence in the Irish auto trade in Ireland, a sector that accounts for over 35,000 jobs.

Garahys are nominated in the LCV / HCV Independent Workshop of the Year category. Candidates for the awards are subjected to phone and personal mystery shops as part of their adjudication.

Broadcaster Ivan Yates will MC the gala event, which attracts in excess of 700 senior figures from the motor industry in Ireland and coincides with the Auto Trade EXPO, also in the nearby Citywest Exhibition Centre and Arena, where over 5,000 visitors will visit nearly 200 trade exhibitor stands from the aftersales, parts, tools and equipment and services sectors on Saturday and Sunday, October 20 and 21.

Organiser Padraic Deane of Automotive Publications, commented: “In a sector whose economic worth is often overlooked, these awards are a recognition of excellence based on rigorous adjudication and direct feedback from industry peers. Standards in the industry are rising every year and this is reflected in ever greater competition for the awards”.
