Circle K, today unveiled its newest service station in its nationwide network, on the M9 in Kilcullen, Co.Kildare.
The fuel and convenience retailer also opened a Circle K on the M6, Athlone, Co. Westmeath, and on the M11 in Gorey, Co. Wexford, earlier this year.
"These locations will all play a key role within the Irish transport network, catering to the thousands of commuters who travel these routes daily," said Gordon Lawlor, Managing Director of Circle K Ireland.
The new site at Kilcullen will create 30 new positions, bringing the total amount of jobs created by the group to 100 in 2019.
"This further reinforces our ongoing commitment to investment in local communities as well as job creation nationwide, with over 2,200 employees in Ireland, and almost half of those being based outside of Dublin," Lawlor stated.
The Kildare forecourt, which will be open 24 hours daily, also features a wide range of services for customer’s convenience, including a seated café area, an indoor and outdoor children’s play area, WC changing and showering facilities, Wi-Fi, and extensive parking for customers including truck and coach spaces. A McDonalds restaurant will also be on site.
These newly unveiled sites in 2019 are in addition to the opening of a motorway site on the N7 at Kill North, Co. Kildare in December 2018 which is part of an overall investment of €35 million.
