McDonald’s in Fermoy have been granted permission for the development of a new drive-thru service.

The restaurant, attached to the Circle K service station located at Junction 14 off the M8 motorway, applied to Cork County Council to develop a drive-thru facility at the restaurant and change the use of an existing service access route to a drive-thru laneway.

The proposed development will include all the features of a typical drive-thru including directional road marking, customer ordering points, digital menu boards, signage for the ‘pay’ and ‘collection’ areas and a grill parking bay for the waiting area.

The Circle K service station opened for business in May 2018 and an earlier planning permission sought by the developers JR Oronco for a McDonald’s drive-thru facility had been turned down by Cork County Council.

However, McDonald’s opened an in-store outlet at the Circle K facility on January 18, 2019.
