Ten new full-time jobs are to be created in Sligo by Connolly Motor Group, which has just been appointed as main dealers for SEAT in Sligo.
Connolly’s SEAT will open in Collooney in October and the company will make a significant investment in a building that has remained vacant since the recession.
The new jobs will increase the number of full-time employees at the Connolly Motor Group to 230 and the company will begin recruitment immediately.
When Connolly’s SEAT is opened, the group will employ 93 people in Sligo.
The deal sees the motor group, which is one of the biggest in the country and run by brothers Kevin and Neil Connolly, expand its representation with Volkswagen Group brands.
It already runs Volkswagen dealerships in Ballina and Sligo as well as Audi dealerships in Galway, Ballina and Sligo.
