Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY STAFF RE­PORTER

NEWRY con­struc­tion firm O’hare and Mcgovern has won the con­tract to build Shel­bourne Mo­tors’ new £5m car show­room in Newry.

The com­pany has al­ready be­gun work on the Clar­man Ar­chi­tects-de­signed 50,000 sq ft de­vel­op­ment, which will in­clude car show­rooms, new car han­dover bays, a loungestyle wait­ing area with cafe and a drive-thru ser­vice cen­tre with a 28-bay ser­vice work­shop.

Martin Len­non, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of O’hare and Mcgovern, said: “We’re ab­so­lutely de­lighted to have won the con­tract to build this new state-of-the-art show­piece fa­cil­ity. It strength­ens our re­la­tion­ship with Shel­bourne Mo­tors which stretches back more than 40 years, and it is also a huge eco­nomic boost for the city, and the wider Newry area.”

The new show­room will open next sum­mer and cre­ate 60 new jobs. It will sell new and used Re­nault and Kia ve­hi­cles. Caro­line Willis, fi­nan­cial di­rec­tor, de­scribed the fa­cil­ity as a “sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone” for the com­pany.
