Longford County Council has granted planning permission for a development that’d create 100 jobs.
It has given Supermacs boss Pat McDonagh’s company Atlantic Enterprises the go-ahead to develop a service station, with a retail unit, food court and drive-through restaurant, in the Ballinalee Road, Longford town.
The decision has been made subject to 19 conditions.
Mr McDonagh has several similar developments around the country, including in Galway and Moneygall, Co Offaly.
Mr McDonagh has welcomed the news, but says he has yet to received the conditions.
