    Previous thread hadn't had a post in 5 years. Looking for any recommendations for mechanic around the city. Would prefer to hear real recommendations rather than pick a random garage off Google. Car is a VW if it makes any difference. Breaks feel a bit different so want to get them checked.

    Is he cheap?


    I found him very cheap, but to be fair, the going rate is about 35 an hour, I really don't like this idea of cheap, it's not cheap to run a business in Ireland, lads need to be paid, and taxes paid etc. I found Joe extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and done a great job, after that, I would even dream of haggling with him

    think the guys name is Denis Hegarty who has been there 30+ years. Joe Whelan is the mid aged mechanic. open to correction but im 95% certain and have used them several times.

    +1 On this. All decent lads in there. However, he's actually in Thomas Street, not The Glen.

    Apologies, yep all decent lads is right. Will always go out of their way for you and look after you financially. Dealing with the lads in there years and they have never left me down.
