PETER O’Neill’s love of driving saw the Musgrave driver recently awarded the title of ‘Ireland’s best truck driver for 2015’ at an awards ceremony in Dublin.

The annual competition is organised by Fleet Transport in association with Enprova to find the best truck driver in Ireland.

‘Driving has always been a passion of mine and I am lucky enough to be in a position where I love my job and enjoy being on the road. It’s a great honour to have won the Vincent Sweeney Memorial Trophy and it is great to receive recognition and validation for something I genuinely love doing,’ said Peter, speaking to The Southern Star.

‘I would like to thank Fleet Transport, sponsors of the event Enprova, MRPI, my family and friends for their support and celebrating with me on my win. I would encourage all drivers out there to take part in the Fleet Transport Awards and Ireland’s Best Driver Competition.’

The Newcestown native is a driver for Musgrave Retail Partners Ireland (MRPI) in Tramore Road in Cork and has been driving for the company for the past 18 years.

Peter covers the southern half of the country and delivers chilled foods to all SuperValu and Centra stores, as well as back loads from producers.

The competition consisted of three rounds that included a theoretical module, eco driving and manoeuvring tests, together with a load-securing element overseen by the Health & Safety Authority. Leading up to the Grand Final, ten finalists were selected from hundreds of applications received and they were selected to take part in the manoeuvring test, and load security element.

After a closely-fought contest, Peter eventually came out on top to secure the prestigious title.

Peter was well supported on the day with representatives from his family to cheer him on at the spectator viewing area and he was presented with this trophy at an awards gala dinner at CityWest later that evening.
