THE IRISH FAST food chain Supermac’s has said it will create more than 50 new jobs in a new major development in Moneygall in Co Offaly.
The town made famous by being the birthplace of US president Barack Obama’s ancestors, will see the development of a new €7 million travel plaza that will include motorway services along the M7 route from Dublin to Limerick.
The plans include the opening of Supermac’s and Papa John’s Pizza restaurants, as well other food outlets, a convenience shop and fuel pumps with the creation of more than 50 jobs.
Supermac’s also say that a further 70-80 jobs will be created by the development and building stages of the project on the 12 acre site.
The new development is expected to open early next year.
President Obama is expected to visit Moneygall when he arrives in Ireland next month.
