Al Hayes Motors have acquired a modern state-of-the-art facility on the Gort Road in Ennis, which consists of an eight car showroom and an expansive modern work shop facility. Established as a family business in 1982 in Portumna, Co. Galway, Al Hayes Motors is renowned for quality and service in the region. With a headcount of 50 staff members, the Hayes family are heavily involved in the business. Al, together with his wife Noreen, are directors of the business with sons Niall, Derek, Damian and Alan and daughter Orla all fulfilling senior roles throughout the business. The most familiar member of the Hayes family will no doubt be Damien Hayes. Boasting 4 All-Ireland Hurling Club medals with Portumna and three All Star Awards with Galway, Damien Hayes has been one of the most prominent Hurling GAA stars of recent years. Now retired from inter-county hurling, Damien is arguably taking on his biggest challenge in establishing Al Hayes Motors, ŠKODA in Ennis Co. Clare.
