Question: How do you get a FREE CAR from Ford Ireland? Answer: Become Lord Mayor of Cork City, although – naturally – it is for the use of the office, and not the individual. It’s a tradition that is still alive compliments of Ford which has it’s Irish HQ in Cork, just a few minutes drive from City Hall.

Given the hectic diary of the first citizen, and the positive representational role it is important to have a clearly identifiable means of transport and great credit is due to Ford for assisting.
