Council not tempted by Apple

WHEN it came to the crunch, a planning application by Applegreen Ltd to build a motorway service station on the Limerick to Ennis motorway has been refused permission by Clare County Council. A decision has been made on the controversial planning application, which received a number of local objections, including one from Ennis Chamber. In January, Applegreen Services Area Ltd submitted an application to Clare County Council for the development of a motorway service area at Latoon South and Latoon North, Dromoland on the M18. In making their decision to refuse permission, the planning authority noted other proposed service stations along the M18. Pat McDonagh, CEO of Supermacs, was granted planning permission for a motorway service station at junction 12 of the motorway. This decision has since been appealed to An Bord Pleanála. Meanwhile, Transport Infrastructure Ireland has undertaken public consultations in relation to the provision of an online service station between Ennis and Sixmilebridge. Clare County Council’s planning authority …

Jerry Fish sizzles at Glór@Dromoland event

Around 300 revellers packed Dromoland’s Brian Boru Banqueting Hall on Saturday night to attend the Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow, in support of Glór. The evening began with a prosecco reception before guests entered the main hall to dine on a sumptuous four course banquet. After dining, it was time for the main event, with Jerry Fish bringing his Electric Sideshow to Clare for the first time. This was the same act performed for the Electric Picnic earlier this year and it went down well with the enthusiastic crowd at Dromoland. A disco followed to give guests the opportunity to party into the small hours. Our picture gallery from the event is below: [doptg id=”41″]

Taoiseach to face protests on Clare visit

ENDA Kenny is to face protests when he comes to Clare on Monday, with the revised water charges still the subject of much public anger. Gardaí met earlier this week to make plans for Monday, when the Taoiseach is set to visit TTM Healthcare at Ballymaley, speak at the Shannon Chamber president’s lunch in Dromoland and open Genworth’s new business centre in Shannon. There is speculation that jobs will be announced at TTM Healthcare and while there were reports that new jobs would also be announced at Genworth, a company spokesman told The Clare Champion this is not the case. It is understood that another Shannon company, which is due to take on new staff in 2015, are also hopeful that the Taoiseach will visit them.

They also said …
