    Hi all,
    does anyone know or had ever heard about ex Garda scrap yard? I heard it is somewhere around Lucan/Clondalkin area. I am looking for the parts from their Ford Mondeos.
    Thanks!

    Merlin Car Auctions often have them, there's a 2005 posted with 324,000KM in white so I'm guessing it could be one.

    Not sure if that is a Garda car as the NCT lists it as private.

    Body looks to good. :D

    Often used to see them being broken at felix byrnes in gorey....dont think theres a dedicated scrapper as such, they get auctioned off and reused / broken

    Your looking to get spare parts off the most abused vehicles in the country:confused: There has to be better places to get Mondeo parts, it's not like their rare.

    Wilsons sell off the crashed, smashed and mashed stuff for the gards.

    All Garda cars go to the park now to be crushed once they reach end of life ie 300k or are damaged beyond repair.

    They are no longer sold at auction to the public or sold to scrap yards for breaking because they are deemed unroadworthy after 300k.

    What are you looking for someone might be able to point you in the right direction if you can be a bit more specific what your looking for ??

    I wonder what the guards will get to replace all those mondeos, they are real workhorses it would seem. I expect many are nearing end of life now.

    More Mondeos and Focuses think they are buying estates now.

    Ford have a contract to supply 170 vehicles this year.
