JD Wetherspoon acquires second site in Republic of Ireland

12 December 2013 by

Pub operator JD Wetherspoon has exchanged contracts on its second pub in the Republic of Ireland.

The Watford-based company has purchased the former Newport Cafe in Paul Street Plaza, Cork.

Wetherspoon is to invest more than €1.5m (£1.26m) developing the site, which is currently closed and will require both planning and licensing permission.

At present there are no on site or opening dates, however, Wetherspoon aims to have the new-look pub open by April 2014.

Wetherspoon founder and chairman Tim Martin said: "I am delighted that we have secured our first pub in Cork and our second in the Republic of Ireland.

"We are looking at other sites throughout the Republic of Ireland and hopefully they will come to fruition in the near future."
