Moore power to them as new garage officially opens

I WAS so sorry not to get down 'home' to the official opening of the new Audi Athlone showroom.
The old Dublin Road €4.4m showroom is a serious investment and is well up and running at this stage – so much so we have already been and done a Garage Watch.
Last week we heard economist Jim Power say how car sales create jobs and here is an example of it – with 18 at the showroom and potentially five more positions by the end of the year.
As well as room for 12 cars inside, there are up to 60 used vehicles outside on display.
Among those at the event were, of course, Michael Moore Snr and Michael Moore Jnr, dealer principal; as well as brand ambassadors Rob Kearney and Kathryn Thomas, Bressie and IRUPA Young Player of the Year Robbie Henshaw.
The Moores have been in the motor business for 42 years.
