Trading Since 1971

The ongoing expansion of iMotors (formerly Inishowen Motors) with the help and support of our staff has enabled us to bring our customers more choice of top quality affordable vehicles.

We have been an agent for Kia for over 10 years and this partnership has delivered the famous 7 year warranty commitment for top quality low cost vehicles. Due to the success of our expansion at Drumkeen, Letterkenny, we at iMotors (formerly Inishowen Motors) are confident that our planned development with Nissan will bring more choice to our customers with real deals and real discounts. As a family run business we understand the significance of choosing the right vehicle for your family and for your business.

We also know how important value for money is to our customers. Seamus and Sean have continued in the steps of their father and have extensive knowledge and expertise in providing excellent service. We place customer care as a top priority in the delivery of our business objectives.


John Henry McLaughlin, started his apprenticeship in 1953 in the newly built iMotors (formerly Inishowen Motors) for 12.06d per week. He moved on to work in various other garage businesses before purchasing iMotors (formerly Inishowen Motors) in Malin. The sales and services business was started by John and his wife Susan McLaughlin in 1971. With the increasing sales of both new and second hand vehicles the business went from strength to strength.

Today this Malin business is run by son Sean and the Drumkeen, Letterkenny business – which opened nearly 10 years ago, is run by son Seamus. John still plays an active role as managing director, so it is truly a Family business. We have two and three generations of customers.
