Trivia and History
The service area is built on the site of a former quarry, called Manor Stone. Although Topaz referred to it internally as Ballacolla (derived from the nearby settlement Ballycolla), the public branding says 'Manor Stone service station'. To further confuse matters, Transport Infrastructure Ireland call it 'Rathdowney'.
The main amenity building is branded Re.Store, with a sales shop and small Supermac's restaurant at the front. There are then three exits to the surrounding roads and toilets at the back. Although Re.Store branding should have been removed when Circle K was introduced in 2018, most of it still survives.
A garden centre, car sales and car repairs centre are accessed through the services.
