Pub group JD Wetherspoon has revealed that it is looking for additional development sites in the Republic of Ireland to expand its business in the country.

At present, Wetherspoon is planning to open a new 89-bedroom hotel and pub on Dublin's Camden Street by July of this year as well as a new pub called South Strand on the capital's Hanover Quay later this year and a pub along Broad Street and Arundel Square in Waterford called Arundel Gate, which is also due to open by July.
