150 jobs to be created by Limerick's own Barack Obama Plaza-style service station
150 jobs are set to be created in Limerick by the construction of a service station in the style of Offaly's Barack Obama Plaza.
The plans, revealed by the Limerick Leader, are likely to create 100 jobs in construction and 50 permanent roles.
It has been reported that the service station will operate 24/7, and that it will be located next to the Coonagh Roundabout and the Clondrinagh Business Park in Co. Limerick. As well as petrol pumps, the new station will also be equipped with electric vehicle charging points.
The Barack Obama Plaza is famous for its Supermac's and the fact that Barack Obama actually did visit the nearby town of Moneygall, where his ancestors hail from. While Limerick's new super-junction may not have any connection to the popular former American President, it is set to have a two-storey restaurant building on the site — complete with a drive-thru and children's play area.
Maybe they'll name this one after the current American President, though we can't quite see that happening.
