Fast food restaurant McDonald’s has opened a new restaurant in the town of Nenagh, Republic of Ireland, the Nenagh Guardian has reported.
Located at Nenagh Business Park on Limerick Road, the new restaurant also features a drive-through facility.
The new McDonald’s venue has created 75 employment opportunities in the region, from full-time and part-time crew member roles to mid and senior managerial positions.
The beef, bacon, milk, water and eggs served in the Nenagh restaurant will be 100% locally sourced.
McDonald’s franchisee John Quirke was quoted by the news agency as saying: “This major investment in Nenagh reflects McDonald’s commitment to growing its business in Ireland and I’m pleased to confirm our new store has already created significant levels of direct employment, as well as indirectly through the agri-food and manufacturing supply chain.
“McDonald’s is committed to serving the local communities around our restaurants, so we are very much looking forward to building relationships with local community groups, organisations and stakeholders in Nenagh and the surrounding area.”

In January 2022, McDonald’s partnered with vegan company Beyond Meat to launch its first plant-based burger, the McPlant, in the UK and Ireland.
Featuring a patty co-developed with Beyond Meat, the burger was tested by the company at more than 250 restaurants.
The plant-based burger, which took more than three years to develop, was the first plant-based option offered by the company to its British and Irish customers. The McPlant was rolled out across all McDonald’s outlets in the UK and Ireland.
