Greenhall Motors, Main Opel Dealer in Buttevant, has been awarded the coveted Opel Dealer of the Year 2023 accolade. Barry O’Shea, Dealer Principal, and his wife, Evelyn, were presented with the trophy to much applaud at the annual Opel Dealer Conference, held at Gowan Auto’s new Distribution Centre in Citywest, followed by the K Club, Straffan, on 11th October.

Celebrating over 60 years in business in 2023 and 58 years as an Opel Dealer, Greenhall Motors was the first appointed Opel Franchise Dealer in Munster, providing Opel customers with the highest standard of customer service ever since. No stranger to awards, the family-run dealership operated by brothers Barry and Tadhg O’Shea has previously won multiple awards over the years, including the Opel Customer Excellence award four times, the European Opel Chairman’s Circle Award in 2011, and taking home the Opel Dealer of the Year winner’s trophy in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and in 2016.

James Brooks, Managing Director at Opel Ireland said “It came as no surprise to me that Greenhall Motors has won this year’s Opel Dealer of the Year title. The team at Greenhall Motors is enthusiastic and passionate about the Opel brand, delivering proven results across every facet of their business – sales, brand standards, marketing, parts, and service – time and time again. Their engagement with us, with their customers, and indeed their peers across the Opel Dealer Network, is simply class-leading and deeply appreciated. I am whole-heartedly delighted to present the team at Greenhall with this deserved award.”

Barry O’Shea, Dealer Principal, said at the Opel Dealer Conference, “I am absolutely humbled and delighted to bring the Opel Dealer of the Year trophy home to Cork, once again. I am equally thrilled to know that our team’s continued efforts are recognised by Opel and Gowan Auto, and I personally thank all my team for their absolute dedication to our company and Opel. But I can’t accept this award without acknowledging our very valued customers. We thank them sincerely for all their support throughout the years and we very much look forward to seeing everyone in 2024 at Greenhall Motors.”
