Plans submitted for a motorway service area near Mullinavat

Plans are afoot for a new motorway service station on the M9 – this time in South Kilkenny.

An application has been lodged with Kilkenny County Council for a 24-hour service area off the M9 at Garrandarragh, Mullinavat – which is just off Exit 11.

The development would include a fuel station with 12 normal bays and 2 for HGV’s; a convenience store; and a food court with a café and restaurants – including take away facilities.

There would also be an indoor play area, tourist information, public toilets, changing and shower facilities, along with the various offices.

Outside of the building the applicant is looking for permission for picnic, play, amenity and rest areas, with bicycle parking, car and HGV parking as well – along with charging points for electric cars.

The application was lodged with the county council on the 10th of this month.
