Permission granted for new restaurant in Offaly town
A new cafe/restaurant is set to open in Offaly after the local authority granted planning permission for the enterprise.

It also plans for the creation of a new door opening and a single storey extension to the rear including all associated internal modifications and siteworks.
The propsosed works are in the curtilage of a protected structure listed under the record of protected structures in the Birr Town and Environs Development Plan. The application was lodged by Mary and Tommy Lydon.
