Rugby Publican's Business 'Crucified' By Roadworks

Former Irish rugby player Peter Clohessy has spoken out on the impact of Limerick County Council roadworks on his pub, claiming that the works associated with a €5 million plan to open up Limerick to the River Shannon have 'crucified' his business.

The roadworks, which commenced in February and are due to be completed in September, are part of a Limerick City Council, Fáilte Ireland and Shannon Development project and includes the construction of a boardwalk across the road from the pub.

"The boardwalk will be good for business in the long run, but at the moment, it is hurting us," Clohessy said.

Accumulated losses at the company that operates the nightclub and pub increased by €180,495 to €504,139 during the 12 months to the end of August 2012.
