Local business owners Eddie Tobin of Tobin’s Service Station and Paul Sweeney of Sweeney’s Spar at Ballyraine both objected to the plans.The businessmen say they are objecting to the plans because of traffic congestion while Mr Sweeney claims the granting of permission could lead him to lay staff off.However planning has been granted with 20 different conditions.It is expected that both business owners will take their case to An Bord Pleanala.
