Well-known Ballybrittas business man Pat Keogh of Pat Keogh Car Sales celebrated 20 years in business with ŠKODA at the ŠKODA Ireland Dealer Conference this month.
The Laois dealership is one of the most successful ŠKODA dealerships in Ireland selling over 6,400 new ŠKODA’s since they became an authorised dealer back in 1996.
In the past year, Pat has unveiled brand new state-of-the-art showrooms following an investment of almost three quarters of a million euro.
The investment has led to the creation of two new jobs bringing the total number of employees to 19, including his wife Rose and son, Wayne, with plans for a further five new jobs over the next three years.
Speaking at the conference, Pat Keogh said: “I am honoured to accept this award and to celebrate 20 years in business with ŠKODA in Ireland.
“We have a wonderful team at our dealership in Ballybrittas and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for all their hard work over the years.
“Our customers are at the core of what we do, so it feels very timely to have launched our fantastic new state-of-the-art premises in the past 12 months, and I’m delighted with how well it’s been received by everyone who has walked through the doors since.
“Here’s to the next 20 years!”
Also commenting, John Donegan, Brand Director, ŠKODA Ireland, said: “We are extremely lucky at ŠKODA to have someone as dedicated and knowledgeable as Pat Keogh working in our network of dealers.
“Pat Keogh Car Sales is consistently one of our top performing dealers and that is down to Pat’s vision and hard work.
“I am delighted to be able to recognise that work today and wish Pat and all his family and team many more years of continued success.”
