We hope that the new look, feel and content on our website will tell our customers – and potential customers – a bit more about us here at Connollys in Ballina, Sligo and Galway.
First and foremost, we are a family-run business with our car dealership heritage reaching back to the 1930s when Thomas Connolly opened the first dealership in Ballina. Some 76 years later, his two grandsons, Kevin and Neil, continue to keep the family’s passion for cars alive. You can read more about the Connolly family story – and see some fascinating historical pictures of the pioneers of our business - by clicking here.
But it is not only those that hold the surname ‘Connolly’ whom we consider family. Our 150 dedicated staff who work at our state-of-the-art Audi showrooms in Galway, Ballina and Sligo and our Volkswagen showrooms in Sligo and Ballina are also part of our family.
These are the people who greet our customers with a smile and a coffee and ensure they are looked after immediately. These are the sales team who are trained to the highest Audi and VW standards in order to answer every detailed question you might have. These are the expert mechanics and technicians who are highly skilled and trained to all Volkswagen and Audi standards. To read more about Connolly’s Hero’s – our staff – click here.
There is a third element to our family and that is you – our customers. We know that drivers who select an Audi or a Volkswagen have the same high standards that are synomous with those brands and we strive to meet and exceed your expectations.
We are proud of the fact that we have had the same people returning to Connollys’ Audi and Volkswagen dealerships down through the years and have bought two, three and even four cars from us. We love the fact that we know their names and they know ours; a real relationship has been forged with our customers that is hard to replicate.
So, even though Neil and Kevin continue to follow in their grandfather (and father’s) innovative footsteps, they know that family and connections are what will continue to drive their passion for Connolly Motor Group.
We hope that you like our new website and keep an eye out for regular news and updates from the Connolly family here at Sligo, Galway and Ballina.
