Trivia & History
JR Oronco Ltd held planning permission to build services at M8 J14. They billed it as "the largest development of its kind in Ireland". Meanwhile, Applegreen had their planned M8 J13 services initially accepted but then later refused over concerns about the impact on the environment and economy. Amber Oil have objected to the latest plan claiming it will impact the local economy.
In February 2016 it was announced the services would be built by Topaz and McDonald's. Work started on the construction in August 2017 and involved the construction of a new roundabout on the R639.
The McDonald's drive thru here was refused planning permission on the grounds that it would take trade from local towns, but the developer has appealed this. For example, there is already a signposted 'service station' (standard petrol station) at this junction, and those signs will presumably have to be changed to be less misleading.
It opened on 30 March 2018 as the first site in Ireland to acknowledge Topaz's new name, Circle K.
