With a new Dealership facility at Castlebaldwin, Co. Sligo, Porter Ford tells us that it will offer the full range of Ford’s popular passenger and commercial vehicle range. At start up, the Dealership will provide employment for 12 persons.

Speaking about the new Dealer appointment, Ciarán McMahon, Managing Director of Ford Ireland, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Porter Ford on board as a Main Ford Dealer in Sligo. David and Ray Porter who will be heading up the Dealership both have an excellent business pedigree. Ray has extensive automotive experience with some 12 years in the motor trade. David has spent nearly 20 years in the finance sector and his most recent years with the family chartered accountant practice in Sligo. Both brothers are rooted in Sligo and are looking forward to raising the Ford profile there. The new Dealership will be a great boost for Ford’s business in Sligo and surrounding counties”.

Ray Porter, Director of Porter Ford, said: “We are really excited about the prospect of setting up a Ford Dealership in our home county of Sligo. Ford cars and vans are some of the best on Ireland’s roads today and, rightly, have a broad and loyal customer-base. We can’t wait to bring the latest award-winning Ford passenger and commercial vehicle models to motorists and van operators in Sligo and adjoining counties”.

The Porter Ford Dealership is located at Castlebaldwin on the busy N4 route to Dublin, a little over 10 minutes from Sligo town and will offer new and used car and van sales, business leasing, finance, servicing and parts sales.
