The former Around a Pound, Dunnes Stores and McLoughlins bar meets the demolition team. Planning passed for 3 shops and 10 apartments back in 2007 and 2009 (mentioned on here) and amended and finally passed in 2016. Site clearance started this morning.

Nice development, it will improve the area.

Strange to see apartments without windows
to the rear...no natural light or ventilation
in the bathrooms.
