KCLR LIVE: Live from Doran’s SuperValu in Graiguenamanagh, Celebrating 40 Years in Business – Friday, 26th August 2022

Listen back to today's show with Edward Hayden here


We are delighted to be broadcasting live from Graiguenamanagh to commemorate Doran’s SuperValu’s 40th anniversary in business. Michael Doran and his family have been running the business for 40 years, employing hundreds of locals, and the business is now in its second generation. Over the years, the shop has undergone several renovations, including the addition of a bakery, an off-license, and the introduction of home deliveries, to name a few. They have been involved in Tidy Towns, Love Graig, and the local GAA club for over 20 years and are proud supporters of the local community. During the covid pandemic, the shop and its staff did incredible work, assisting older and vulnerable customers by delivering throughout the county.
