As you might have already heard, here at Cleary Motors we are celebrating our 50th anniversary as the main Renault dealer in Thurles, Tipperary. (Read more about how proud we are.) There is no denying that we are a very close-knit community in Thurles. Therefore, we have decided to collaborate with the Presentation Secondary School, who are also celebrating a big milestone – their 200th year anniversary.

One of the Presentation School’s main goals for 2017 is to build a safe and sustainable well-designed all-weather hockey pitch, which will be encircled by a four-lane running track. So far, the school’s voluntary committee, made up of parents and friends, has raised a fantastic €185,000. To help the school out, to raise more funds and close the gap, Cleary Motors are running a competition in conjunction with them.

The competition is very simple. If you buy tickets (€20 each or 3 for €50), you will be entered to win a brand new Renault CAPTUR or MEGANE.

Renault Brand Ambassadors, The Happy Pear, Visit The Presentation School

To launch the competition, last Thursday the 11th of May, Renault brand ambassadors The Happy Pear (aka Stephen & David Flynn), visited the Presentation School. Some of the Cleary Motors team, including Pat Cleary, were absolutely delighted to be in attendance on the day! From the get-go, everyone was in high-spirits and very excited to hear how The Happy Pear are ‘Making the World a Healthier Happier Place‘ through their cafés and cookbooks.

The Happy Pear had no shortage of fans, including Pat! 😉

The Presentation School students deserved a well-earned break from their studies to enjoy The Happy Pear’s cooking demonstration.



The day featured lots of healthy treat samples from The World of The Happy Pear cookbook, including Energy Balls and Salted Caramel Tart.

The students participated and helped out on the day. Easy work when faced with a delicious salted caramel tart.


The afternoon also included a very inspiring motivational talk from David & Stephen Flynn. One particular nugget of information that we will be taking back to the dealership is: ‘Be nice to yourself. Life is complicated, so you have to be kind to yourself.’



Win a Renault CAPTUR or MEGANE With Cleary Motors & The Presentation School

Let’s take a little look at the two cars that you could win by entering this competition . . .


Capture life with the CAPTUR – a stylish and functional crossover. The CAPTUR contains all of the main features that you would expect of a crossover, including flexible boot space, dashboard storage and reclining 60:49 split-folding rear seating.



Stand out from the crowd with the All-New MEGANE, and be swept away by this car with its c-shaped front headlights and rear signature lighting on the exterior. With refined materials and high quality finish, be won over by the attention to detail in this car.


Community First at Cleary Motors
