Mayoral duo visit Crosslé Cars, Holywood

I recently welcomed Belfast Lord Mayor Councillor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir to visit Crosslé Cars, arguably Holywood’s secret success story.

We met with Caroline Crosslé, daughter of founder racing champ John Crosslé, CEO Paul McMorran and staff at Crosslé’s Holywood premises.

Crosslé is a well established successful company exporting racing cars across the world led by Paul McMorran and a number of dedicated skilful staff with a strong future ahead of them.

In order to grow our economy and export markets we must look outwards and work together in collaboration with our neighbours whether they be in Belfast, London or Dublin. I was therefore delighted to welcome the Belfast Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir to Holywood to see Crosslé Cars, arguably Holywood’s secret success story. Máirtín was extremely impressed and looks forward to profiling the company to business leaders across the USA when he next visits the East Coast of America.

The history and heritage associated with Crosslé is rich and I therefore look forward to reading the forthcoming publication documenting this history and heritage. Until then I will be working in conjunction with relevant Council officers to explore how we can further assist and enable Crosslé to grow based upon a proud reputation as the world’s longest-established constructors of racing cars.

Established in 1957, Crosslé is the world’s longest-established constructors of racing cars.
