Motor Centre is the new sponsor of the Limerick senior hurling championship.
History is being made in Limerick this year as the Treaty Countys
premier hurling competition becomes known as the Hyundai Limerick
Motor Centre County SHC.
Celebrating 25 years as main Hyundai dealer for Limerick city and
county, Limerick Motor Centre has been providing local motorists
with a stellar service for over half a decade.
With the Hyundai brand really capturing the publics imagination,
this is a very exciting time in the illustrious history of the dealership
which is reflected in the new partnership with Limerick GAA.
Ideally situated on the Ballysimon Road, Limerick city just
two kilometres from the M7 Limerick Motor Centre is a family
business, fronted by the OMara family. It is also Irelands
longest-established main Hyundai dealership, with a mutually-beneficial
relationship that now spans a quarter of a century.
Sales manager Gerry OBrien explained to hoganstand.com: Pat
OMara is the founder and owner, and he is joined in running
the business by his three sons Martin, Robert and Pat Jnr.
Business is going very well as the moment and were delighted
to be able to provide employment locally to a team of 16.
feel honoured and privileged to be a Hyundai dealership as Hyundai
is making tremendous progress and is currently the fastest-growing
car brand in Ireland. Hyundai had 9% of the market in January, 2013,
and is now going toe to toe with the Toyota, Ford and Volkswagen,
which represents massive progress. This is a huge achievement and
just shows how far Hyundai has come in recent years.
The perception of Hyundai cars as a cheap alternative is long gone.
To the contrary, the Korean manufacturers vehicles are now
highly regarded for their quality, efficiency, versatility and stunning
Hyundai now has a fantastic, exciting range of cars, starting
with the i10, which was launched in September, 2007, and also incorporating
the i20, i30 petrol and diesel, the i40 saloon and tourer, the ix20
mini SUV and the ix35 SUV, Gerry notes. The all-new
Hyundai Santa Fe has also just been launched a 2.2 litre
diesel engine with 197 brake horse power and road tax starting from
just €396 per year.
Hyundai vehicles come with an unrivalled five-year unlimited mileage
warranty across the range as well as five-year AA membership and
five-year vehicle healthcare. The unlimited warranty is ideal
for fleets who are clocking up big mileage and will be completely
covered right through to the end of year five, says Gerry.
The service intervals have also gone out to 30,000km, so all
in all the efficiency of a Hyundai cannot be matched.
As for Limerick Motor Centres generous sponsorship of the
2013 Limerick senior hurling championship, Gerry adds: With
Hyundai growing so rapidly and making such unprecedented progress,
we wanted to put the Hyundai name on the kitchen table. We felt
that the best way to do this would be to get involved in sponsorship,
which would be seen throughout the county.
And what better way than through the GAA? The GAA forms the
backbone of every parish and this sponsorship provides the best
possible shop window for Hyundai and Limerick Motor Centre.
Were happy with the partnership and were delighted
to be supporting Limerick hurling. This is a new venture for Limerick
Motor Centre and its an exciting one, so hopefully it will
go to plan for both parties and prove mutually beneficial to all
