What's the news?
The Joe Duffy Group has been appointed as the new Jaguar dealer for North Dublin by Jaguar Land Rover Ireland. The Group already retails Land Rover and Range Rover models from its HB Dennis showroom in the Airside Motor Park in Swords.
Commenting on the appointment, Gavin Hydes, Managing Director, Joe Duffy Group, said: "We are very proud to be representing Jaguar in North Dublin. As part of our plans to grow the Group, this fits perfectly into our strategy of extending our portfolio. Initially, we will open in our HB Dennis facility in Airside, whilst we develop a new, state of the art Jaguar Land Rover facility, which we expect to be open in Spring 2016."
The timing bodes well for Jaguar Ireland, which has just recently introduced its new Jaguar XF model while in late 2016 the firm's first SUV, called the Jaguar F-Pace, will officially go on sale. Gerard O'Farrell, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Ireland, added: "We are delighted to confirm the appointment of the Joe Duffy Group as our new Jaguar dealer partners in North Dublin. The Jaguar brand in Ireland is going from strength to strength with the recent expansion of its model range to include the all new Jaguar XF and the eagerly awaited F-Pace. The addition of the Jaguar brand to their existing Land Rover dealership further strengthens our partnership and will enable Joe Duffy Group to offer the full line up now available from these two iconic premium brands to their wider customer base."
The addition of Jaguar to the Joe Duffy Motor Group further bolsters its presence in the premium segment, which already includes Audi, BMW and Porsche amongst its extensive portfolio.
