Barlo Motors

I was ‘baptised’ into the motor industry in June 2007 – it changed my life!

I joined Barlo Motor Group as Senior Sales Advisor at their Ford dealership in Thurles on 1st July 2015. Past experience also includes the BMW and AUDI brands, which followed my upbringing in the industry with Merlin Car Auctions/Merlin Motor City, way back in ’07. Knowledgeable. professional and attentive, I wear this job “like a second skin” which is how my line manager recently put it.
