Murphy’s Motors to ‘officially open’ its New Holland outlet at Cillín Hill

Well-known New Holland dealership Murphy’s Motors will celebrate the official opening of its parts and sales outlet at Cillín Hill, Kilkenny, this evening, Thursday, October 17.

The event will run from 7:00pm until 9:00pm.

The new outlet is described as a “parts and sales hub for Kilkenny, which extends into the south-west of Co. Wexford”. It will be “in addition to the dealership’s current territory in Co. Waterford”.

The opening will provide an opportunity to view the new 2,500ft² outlet, which stocks a “wide range” of New Holland products. It follows the appointment of Murphy’s Motors as a full-line New Holland dealer in 2018.

Directors Bernadette and Dick Murphy (pictured above) are looking forward to this evening’s celebrations, following the “significant expansion of the dealership’s area”.

Dick explained: “We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to our Cillín Hill outlet, where a special member of the Murphy’s Motors team will cut the ribbon to officially open this branch.

“There will be a number of giveaways, along with the chance to win a €500 New Holland parts voucher. Light refreshments will be served from 7:00pm. All are welcome.”
