LIMERICK’S biggest nightclub has moved a step closer to reopening with a judge approving the ad interim transfer of a liquor licence to the premises formerly known as the Trinity Rooms.
Judge Eugene O’Kelly also granted an application to Savage Management Limited for a dance licence subject to the installation of CCTV to the satisfaction of gardai.
Savage Management Ltd has just taken over the lease on part of the Granary at Bank Place and plans to open a nightclub to be known as Crush 87.
Anthony O’Dwyer, a director of Savage Management, told Limerick District Court that he was familiar with the licensing laws.
Insp Seamus Ruane, Henry Street garda station, said there was no objection to the application for a dance licence subject to a summary of works being carried out, including the installation of a CCTV system.
Mr O’Dwyer undertook that the nightclub would not open until such time as these works were completed to the satisfaction of the state. He expected that the CCTV system would be installed by Monday or Tuesday of this week.
Judge O’Kelly granted the licence, subject to the works being completed and subject to a stamped copy of the lease of the premises being produced in court.
The Trinity Rooms nightclub closed down in June 2010 with the loss of 50 jobs.
