Another Fethard business falls to the recession

Unfortunately another Fethard business has closed its doors last week due in no small way to the current recessionary climate in Ireland.

Spar Supermarket was first opened by Tom Hennessey as the ‘Cross Stop’ on July 26, 1997, at the junction of Main Street, Kerry Street, The Valley and the Cashel Road.The building was formerly known as the ‘Cross House’ and was the residence of the late Johnny Halpin and his wife Margaret (nee Ryan).

As banks, suppliers, businesses and customers continue to tighten their belts who knows what effect it will have on the future of small business towns like Fethard, definitely not a good environment for development.
