Tesco buys Cabra site from the State for €1.7 million

The 0.69 acre site on the Navan Road was no longer required by the Department of Social Protection.

TESCO IRELAND PAID €1.7 million to the State for a 0.69 acre site on the Navan Road that was surplus to the requirements of the Department of Social Protection.

According to junior minister Brian Hayes, the €1,702,800.83 will be halved with 50 per cent going to the Exchequer and 50 per cent to the 2015 Office of Public Works capital programme.

The arrangement was made with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform which initially received the entire sum as an Extra Exchequer Receipt.

The site had been used by the Department of Social Protection as a local office until recently.

In February, Minister Joan Burton opened the Navan Road Intreo Centre, which amalgamated three separate offices into a “one-stop shop for jobseekers”.

Previously, the 8,450 customers of the Navan Road office had to visit three different premises to access these supports.
