Drogheda car show takes place on Laurence's St

In 2010, a group of motor dealers in Drogheda came together to display their cars in one location for the benefit of the car buyer.

Nine years later, the award winning show is finally to arrive in the heart of the town, on Laurence Street.

The Drogheda Motor Show, Brand New Drive 192 event, will run from 10am until 5pm on Saturday 15th June on the street.

All 10 local franchised motor dealerships have partnered up with the Laurence Street Businesses and Traders to bring a special motoring event to the general public. There will be over 60 new cars on display from 14 motor brands.

'Music At The Gate' will be joining the party too from 12 noon until 5pm. The theme of the event this year is road safety and responsible driving so the dealers will focus on sharing information with the public about the sophisticated safety aspects of their shiny new cars for this one-day-only event.

Prospective car buyers are invited to get down to the show where they can expect lots of colour, music and fun for all the family to enjoy. This is a unique opportunity for car buyers to look at, sit in, smell and experience the features of a variety of different new 192 reg cars in thesize that interests them-all in one location. "When we looked back at the success of the event over the last eight years, we realised that the show really was of benefit to everyone. Certainly for us as car dealers but also for car buyers who could browse, get advice and buy with no fuss. Together we brought to life our common idea of helping ourselves and each other." Said Simon McCormack, Western Motors (Volkswagen and Skoda) "It's very exciting to bring the show into the centre of town for the first time. The fascinating history of Laurence Street makes it even more special and we're so pleased to be working alongside other local businesses, with the great support of Louth County Council and the Gardaí, to deliver this positiveeventfor the town.".
