Aldi opens in Terenure

At 9am this morning Aldi in Terenure opened its doors to the public for the first time. Situated in the former tram sheds on Terenure Road East, the building retains the outline of the former sheds, finished in recycled stone from the original building. Beneath the store an underground car park can accommodate over 80 cars, and by 9.45 this morning was already full.

The Association welcomes new commercial activity that benefits residents and also the regeneration of formerly empty and dilapidated buildings. However we retain reservations about the effect on traffic in particular, and also pedestrians crossing the entrance slip road, and will monitor this situation carefully. Should you have any comments or observations on these issues please get in touch.
