An application has been lodged with Offaly County Council to change the use of an old VEC building in Tullamore into a brand new bar and nightclub.

The first floor premises at Woodchester House, O'Connor Square, Tullamore, is currently a 136 sq. metre office space.

Under the proposal lodged with the council's planning department last week, this space would be turned into a bar and nightclub, including a 330 sq. metre extension to the ground floor into the rear yard.

The works would allow for bar/nightclub stores and a smoking area.

This building is a protected structure on the Tullamore Town and Environs Development Plan 2010-2016.
