Taxi Cabs

Getting You To Where You What To Go Since 2012

For 8 years now I’ve been a taxi driver. Since we lost our Bobby Peel, I’ve learnt a lot. I’ve seen a lot. I’ve put a lot off miles on the clock. All my clocks for that matter. I’ve lost a lot and also gained a lot. I’ve met a lot of people, and I know where most of you live lol. I’ve made some friends for life and also been to too many funerals in my short career. I’ve picked up your mums, dads, sons and daughters, grannies and grandas, brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles. Sometimes off the floor first, I’ve cleaned up more sick pee and even poop that I sometimes think I’m working in a care home. Some amazing, scary, funny, shocking, happy, angry, sad times.

If I ever wrote a book? Eh? Do you think you’d get a mention?

All of which I am very thankful for. I’ve always tried to create the best taxi service for all customers and drivers alike. We brought together JayCabs and Coastal Cabs and broadened our horizons venturing into Millisle, Carrowdore and more recently Ballywalter.

I once heard “Avoid stepping into a great mans shoes as they are simply too big, and you will only trip and fall.”

As most of you probably know, I decided to rebrand Donaghadee Taxis to ALL 8’s LOCAL during the lockdown. This wasn’t a decision I came to quickly, after years of thought, and finally when the world stood still during this pandemic. I found myself pondering two things:-
A) should I get off this rollercoaster of a journey that has been a massive part of my life since I was no age and go and live in the woods(seriously though lol)
B) do I get up of my backside, dig deep, dust myself down, pull up my big boy pants and plough all my time and effort into continuing the legacy I was dealt. To pay homage to all that have came before me.

Thankfully I choose the latter. For years now I’ve heard people mention how they would come more often to Donaghadee, Millisle or anywhere down the Peninsula, for that matter, only they always found it hard to get a taxi home. So I’ve set out to make this a whole lot easier. We’ve introduced our automated dispatch system, text back service, our online web booking and now finally after a long wait our shiny new App of which you can Book, Track and Pay your taxi. Hopefully, this should make things a little easier.


Lastly but undoubtedly the most important thing. If you’re still reading this chances are you’ve been apart of this Journey. Without all of you none of this would have been possible, so again, THANK YOU. I hope you keep supporting your local taxi company.
