Welcome to Cavanaghs of Fermoy

Cavanaghs of Fermoy was founded in 1919 by Mr. Tom Cavanagh Snr. The Company was awarded the Ford franchise in 1938. Mr Cavanagh’s son – also Tom – succeeded his father and continued to develop the Company. Although now retired from the business Mr Cavanagh continues to maintain a keen interest in the Company. Indeed, he is still affectionally referred to as “the Boss” by some of the longer serving members of staff – including the current managing Director, Sean Barry!


In 1997, current Managing Director, Sean Barry led a management buyout of the Company and successfully relocated the Company from Ashe Quay to its current address on the Cork Road in 2000.


Along with co directors, Conor O’Keeffe, Michael McCarthy & Tom Collier, Sean has continued to develop and grow the business. Celebrating over 100 years trading in 2019 and now employing 36 staff, all from local communities ( & with six members of staff accounting for over 250 years of service!!) the Company is poised for further growth & strives to live up to its marketing tag line of “nice people to do business with”


The Company actively supports local deserving & sporting causes - especially the GAA where the Company annually supplies a free car for the Avondhu North Cork League.


We look forward to welcoming you Cavanagh’s of Fermoy
