Christmas beckons once again with only 12 days to go as I write to the big day.
What a year it has been, it seems like last Christmas was just last week.
The Covid pandemic is still with us, and now we have a worldwide shortage of cars, car components and a host of other commodities affecting us in so many ways. These are all positive problems reflective of a strong demand in the country at this time and I have no doubt we will get through the issues in time.
We recently celebrated our 50th year in the business, we have seen many highs and lows in that time and like all the other problems these too will pass.
Covid has touched us all and sadly we all now know someone who has it now or has had it or passed away from it.
There is no doubt that vaccination is vital in fighting this pandemic, I would urge all who have not yet been vaccinated to get on with it for your own sake, and for all those in the front line and the country.
I would like to again give a big thanks to all our staff who have been keeping the show on the road, as we deal with the many staffing incidents due to close contacts/ isolation periods and sickness not to mention the shortages we are experiencing. We have our own front-line workers, and they are doing an excellent job!
Finally thanks also to all our customers for being a customer, for your patience with us this year as we work our way through this crisis. We look forward to continuing to serve you in 2022 and beyond.
On behalf of all the team in Mooneys Long Mile Road and Deansgrange.
We hope you have a very happy and safe Christmas.
