Tesco Ireland Opens New Limerick Store

Tesco Ireland has opened its 174th Irish store this week, at Kileely Road, in Limerick, creating 33 jobs for the local area.

This is the fourth Irish store that Tesco has opened this month. Two stores opened in Dublin – in Blanchardstown and on Townsend Street – followed by the opening of a new Portlaoise store.

Measuring 10,000 square feet, the Limerick superstore promises a quality shopping experience for all customers.

It will include features such as an in-store bakery, a Smokin’ Bean coffee station, a DRS machine, and free customer parking.

The store will be managed by Michael Fitzgerald, who has worked in the business for 16 years.


‘Engaging With The Community’

Speaking about the new store, the chief operating officer of Tesco Ireland, Geoff Byrne, said, “We’re very excited to open the doors of our new Limerick store.

“We are committed to ensuring that Kileely Road and all stores play a role in local communities.

“We are continuing to invest in new stores around the country, and we look forward to embedding ourselves into the community for many years to come.”

At the opening of the store, manager Fitzgerald said, “This is a very exciting day for the team and me.

“We’ve been working very hard behind the scenes for the past few weeks to ensure that the store will offer the best-possible experience, and welcome, for our customers.


“We really look forward to actively engaging with the community, and we’re especially proud to meet our new friends in St Mary’s National School, who are participating in our Stronger Starts schools programme.

“We’re also looking forward to meeting local groups and projects who need our support through the Community Fund over the coming months.”

Community Fund

Tesco Ireland’s Community Fund has helped support thousands of organisations across the country to date.

These include everything from children’s charities to local GAA clubs.

In its first campaign, the Kileely Road store will support three local causes: Corpus Christi School, St Mary’s National School, and the youth team at Moyross United Football Club.


The new store will also join Tesco’s continued efforts to support its charity partner, the Children’s Health Foundation.

The foundation supports all sick children in CHI at Crumlin, Temple Street and Tallaght hospitals.
