Green light for new ice-cream parlour in Limerick city 

The ice-cream parlour will be located at 57 Thomas Street PICTURE: ADRIAN BUTLER

LIMERICK’s sweet tooth is about to get sweeter, as the development of an ice-cream parlour has been approved by the planning authority in the past week. 

In recent months, a number of cafes and doughnut stores have opened in the heart of the city centre—either on O’Connell Street or on streets connected to O’Connell Street. 

An application was lodged with Limerick City and County Council’s planning department on July 18 for the change of a retail shop to a cafe and ice-cream parlour at 57 Thomas Street. 

The new business will be located at the old Bus Eireann office, between Gloria Jeans cafe and the Tourist Office. 

According to planning files, the Health Service Executive (HSE) did not object to the proposed plans. 

Limerick City and County Council approved of the plans on October 10.

It is not known when the ice-cream parlour will open.
