Work begins on project that will turn derelict army building into organic food market
17:43 Friday 19th of May 2017

Work began this week on a project that will see an old building previously occupied by the Irish Army being turned into a food market and artisan shop in Clane.

The project, which will cost in the region of €285,000 to complete, will see the change of use from a derelict building previously occupied by the defence forces to an organic food market and artisan shop, cafe, creative and community space and gardens as well as occasional venue.

The development at Firmount House on Millicent Road, Clane, will also consist of changes to southeast and southwest elevations, relocation and construction of new site entrance, access road, provision of guests’ parking spaces, footpaths, patio and all associated site works and services.

Kildare County Council gave the go ahead for the project to get underway when they accepted the planning application last July, but work only began on the development earlier this week. No finishing date on the project has been listed.
