JD Wetherspoon Increases Irish Presence

JD Wetherspoon is quickly expanding its presence in Ireland: the UK public house operator has just bought a former nightclub in Blanchardstown, Co Dublin.

The company said it will invest more than €3 million in turning the Light Nightclub in Westend Shopping Park into a pub.

It opened its first pub in the Republic of Ireland in Blackrock in July, and will be opening a pub in Dún Laoghaire next month, which is at present the 40 Foot pub.

“We are delighted to have purchased our new property in Blanchardstown and to open it as a Wetherspoon pub in due course,” Wetherspoon chief executive John Hutson said.
