As part of the development, Lyons & Burton (headquartered in Kilcock) is planning to open a new outlet outside Carlow town in March.
Interestingly, way back in November of last year (on the same night as Cooney Furlong Machinery Company’s Case IH open night), we ran an article surmising that Lyons & Burton might establish a New Holland outlet in or near Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford.Also Read: Lyons & Burton to set up New Holland outlet in Enniscorthy?
This sign (pictured below) – posted in Enniscorthy – was the initial catalyst for the story.
A New Holland source has since confirmed to AgriLand that, at that time, the intention was to establish an outlet there.
However, in the interim, the plan changed.
At this week’s Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) Farm Machinery Show, this sign/flyer (pictured below) was placed on New Holland’s stand.

It shows that the new outlet will be located outside Carlow town, but on what appears to be the Laois side of the (Carlow/Laois) border – in or close to Graiguecullen.
According to New Holland, the majority of the yard will technically be in Co. Laois, though “a corner will be Co. Carlow”.
Lyons & Burton will then (including its existing territory) cover the whole of Carlow, north-west Wexford and Kildare.
Meanwhile, as we confirmed yesterday, Murphy Motors (with existing offices in Glenmore) will open a parts and sales outlet at Cillin Hill in Kilkenny city – in early April.
Murphy Motors will then cover the whole of Kilkenny and the south of Wexford, in addition to its existing territory in Glenmore.
