Windsor Motors celebrating 50 years
Windsor Motor Group is celebrating 50 years at the forefront of the Irish motor trade. Established in 1964, the Windsor Motor Group has become one of Ireland’s largest and most respected dealer groups, with over 300 staff and thousands of delighted customers.
To mark this event, Windsor has brought together the first car that it ever had in its dealership, a 1962 Hilman Minx and the newest model, the 100 per cent electric Nissan Leaf.
Michael O’Reilly original founder of the company opened the first Windsor dealer on Kennilworth road in early 1964. The Hillman Minx was the first car Windsor purchased in April of that year.
In 1967 the operation moved into a property on Windsor Terrace in Harold’s Cross, followed by the Rialto site in 1973 and Belgard in 1988. Windsor now operates nine Nissan dealerships at Airside, Belgard, Bray, Cork, Deansgrange, Galway, Liffey Valley, Dundrum and Raheny.
It also operates two large Opel dealerships at Liffey Valley and Airside Motor Park. Plus a Peugeot dealership in Airside Motor Park, a Kia dealership in Liffey Valley and a Mazda dealership in Galway.
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary Windsor Motors has some great offers for customers. Order a new 142 car before the end of June and receive one of the following:
· 3 years free servicing on all 142 Nissans and Opels
· €500 free fuel on 142 Peugeots
· €500 Blue book voucher on all 142 Mazdas
Gerard O’ Toole, Chairman, Windsor Motor Group commented on reaching this milestone: “We are delighted at how Windsor Motors has gone from strength to strength over the last 50 years. This is as a result of the dedicated employees during these years and our customers who keep coming back.”
