Finlay Reg plate

With the motoring industry in Ireland showing + 23% increase for the first half of the year according to SIMI, Finlay Motor Group is hoping for the same positivity for the rest of the year.

SIMI Director General Alan Nolan said ‘This year promises to be the first normal year of registrations since the recession and with the range of attractive offers available across all brands we are confident that 162 will also deliver in the coming months.”

With the 162 registrations well and truly under way we all here at Finlay’s are hoping that the industry stats and Alan are right.

Finlay Volvo

Week of Launches

 

Finlay Volvo had a very busy week last week attending two very exciting launches.

The first was held in Killashee House Hotel for The Currgah Racecourse’s launch of their Summer Season Racing Programme and Killashee Irish Tatler Style Icon. The proud partnership between Finlay Volvo & The Currgah Racecourse allowed Finlay Volvo to showcase some of our own stylish Volvo’s.

Although the night was about launching the competition for the Style Icon at The Currgah, we think the Volvo’s give them all a run for their money. Both an XC90 & XC60 were proudly parked at the red carpet entrance of the launch evening. As you can see the two vehicles looked amazing parked in front of the picturesque Killashee House Hotel.
