A new industrial estate is set for a Laois town.
Midlands 103 are reporting that Jimmy Dunne has been granted permission from the Laois County Council to build the West Link Business Park at Ballykillen, Killeshin.
The development involves the construction of 14 new buildings, and will be accessed from an existing service station.
This will surely serve as a massive employment boost for that part of the county.
The news comes after it was revealed that Portlaoise is set to get a new cafe.
There was widespread shock in January when Albany Home Decor Store in Portlaoise became the latest business casualty in Portlaoise’s town centre.
The business, which celebrated its 21st anniversary in business in 2016, was located at the top of main street.
However, it appears that the property will not be vacant for much longer.
Planning permission has been lodged to turn the former Albany store into a cafe.
