Patsy and Helen Whelan founded Carlow Cabs in 1985, making it the first taxi company in the county. The company were the proud owners of the original No.1 and No.2 county taxi plates, before the National Authority changed the manner in which taxi plates are numbered. From humble beginnings of working from their home in Woodgrove with one Toyota Crown Car, to becoming the largest company in the county, Carlow Cabs quickly established itself as a leading force in the region. They built up a loyal following of customers throughout the years, many of whom have used the service since day one.
