O’Brien’s Garage Mallow has been revealed as the Official Transport Partner of the Racing Home for Easter Festival. The O’Brien family has been in business at one of North Cork’s longest established Ford dealerships (formerly O’Connell’s) since 2008 before it was re-branded as O’Brien’s Garage Mallow in 2013.

“We’re definitely all geared up for the Racing Home for Easter Festival”, says dealer principal Martin O’Brien. “O’Brien’s Garage has been so warmly welcomed into the local Mallow community and we feel right at home here. We’re delighted to partner such a well respected festival which continues to grow year on year, something our business looks forward to doing in the local area as well”.

Festival chairperson Mary Kelly says it’s wonderful to have new and exciting sponsors on board. “O’Brien’s really aren’t sitting on the fence, they have literally driven right into premium partnership level and we’re delighted to be building what we hope will be a long term working relationship with them. We’re so pleased to have such a well established family business show their commitment not only to Mallow, but to the local festival”.

Horsepower is really going to be to the fore over the Easter festival weekend as O’Brien’s will have shiny new 161 models on display in front of the 20,000 people who attend the 3 day Easter race meeting at Cork Racecourse Mallow.  Mary adds that “O’Brien’s will also have precious cargo to deliver as they will be transporting our secret celebrity guest judge out to the racecourse on Most Stylish Sunday”.
