About Swords Auto

Managing Director, Brian O’Neill, established I.A.E. trading as Swords Auto Electric in 1988.

After successfully completing the Leaving Certificate, Brian studied Electronics and Radio and Telecommunications at Atlantic College, graduating as a Radio Officer in the mid eighties. He continued his training as an Auto Electrician with Annesley Auto Electric.

In 1988, I.A.E. began trading in Lawless’ Yard, North Street, Swords, Co. Dublin. The mid nineties saw the company diversify further in response to customer demand and Swords Auto Truck and Van Hire was established. More recently, the company has expanded into the area of Traffic Management, adding a range of specially equipped self-drive vehicles to the fleet.
