Local firm Byrne Coachbuilders of Coes Road, Dundalk has launched its new hearse design, the fd Ford Deacon. The new hearse is built using a top-of-the-range Ford Mondeo Titanium car and is the result of extensive innovation in design and engineering by the engineering team at the company’s Dundalk facility.
Managing Director Peadar Byrne said: “We have invested considerable time in engineering the fd and are very pleased with the final product. This new hearse will provide the industry in Ireland, UK and Europe with a reliable, stylish and cost effective ceremonial vehicle.”
He continued: “Initial interest is strong and the first hearse produced in our Dundalk facility will be delivered next week. Established for over 40 years, this latest launch demonstrates the commitment of Byrne Coachbuilders to Dundalk.”
