John Deere main dealer Murphy's Garage of Headford has been appointed to represent the Merlo range of agricultural telehandlers.

They are the first main dealers appointed to represent Merlo since their distributors, McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill, Co Tipperary, secured the franchise to distribute the Italian-made product range late last year.

Founded some 30 years ago by its managing director John Murphy, Murphy's of Headford is one of the largest John Deere dealerships in Ireland.


The company operates two outlets servicing the counties of Galway and Mayo – one based just outside Headford and a second situated on the Foxford Road in Ballina which was opened in 2007. Together, both outlets employ a staff of 25.

Commenting on their appointment, John Murphy said that the Merlo P32-6 is perfectly suited for farmers in the west of Ireland.

Regarded as a world leader in design, Merlo's distinctive range of bright green-liveried telescopic handlers is made primarily for construction, environmental and agricultural applications.
