Bridget Walsh – Kellihers Toyota Tralee
Bridget Walsh began her career as an accounts clerk with the Kelliher Family in 1985 in the original Kellihers Garage on Denny Street in the heart of Tralee Town.
Bridget is an integral part of Kellihers Garage with over 30 years and worked her way up to the position of financial controller in the main Toyota dealership for the county at their extensive car sales and service department centre at Rathass, Tralee.
Having started out with ledgers and a sharp pencil in Denny Street, Bridget has seen huge changes through her career with technology being forefront in today’s business world. With a wide and varied role, Bridget enjoys the challenges and changes the motoring world presents and with her vast experience – she takes it all in her stride.
In a predominantly male orientated market place, Bridget is delighted to see women becoming more involved in the motoring world and no more so than in Kellihers Garage in their busy sales, service and crash repair departments where they have currently two female apprentices on their books for 2023. Bridget feels this is a progressive move forward, as gender often determined your career choice in the past.
