Kildare orchard business wants to expand

Mulrines Irish Orchards has applied for planning permission to expand its facilities near Kilteel. 

The business wants to build an apple storage, sorting and dispatch facility on its site. 

It also wants to construct a new adjoining agricultural apple storage building at its location in Rathbane.

Founded in 2014, Mulrines Irish Orchards is spread across 289 acres featuring 135,500 trees.

Apple varieties include Cox La Vera, Malus D’Red Jona Prince Wilton, Malus D’Cevaal Jona Prince Wilton, Golden Delicious, Ida Red, and Malus Elstar.

Mulrines grows, processes and sells its own apples.
