You know what they say about rumours!!!!

Skodas would be nice but not sure about Hyundai. It would depend on which model but anything smaller than the i40 wouldn't be suitable. Anyway doesn't it have to go to public tender and is the last tender that ford got completed?

Any new cars being purchased would have to got through the tendering process, unless they decide to extend the tender they already have in place with Ford. After that would have to to retender if it is over a specific value and get other operators to tender.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rapidly promoted by mainstream media & incomptent managers, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of excrement by the clean end

They can buy some without tender. Look at the short wheel base Transits that are in Pearse St and Cork.

Depends on their role. If only for hi-viz traffic policing or carrying equipment for same then they are grand. Jeeps are not response vehicles.

They came in on a tender in Mid 2010 if my memory is correct.

Funnily enough was told that 2 weeks ago, at an incident by a skipper.
Are vehicles bought by AGS or OPW???
Don't know about cars, but we are looking to replace a 4wd and pre approved are Ford arangers or Pajeros, outside of that it has to go to tender.
