Carlow’s iconic Chesty Murray’s sweetshop set to be rebuilt

Planning Permission Granted to Rebuild Carlow Building

Chesty Murray’s, the once iconic Carlow sweet shop is now set to be rebuilt.

Planning permission has been granted by the Carlow County Council to reconstruct the building formerly known as Chesty Murray’s at number 25, Dublin Street.

The latest application had been submitted in October 2018.

Slaneygio Limited demolished the building in 2016 but the High Court later ruled that the demolition was unlawful.

The company was subsequently instructed to rebuild it.
