Two Topaz petrol stations on motorways mean 110 jobs for Dublin and Laois

Topaz will create the jobs in Clonsaugh and Ballacolla.

FUEL RETAILER TOPAZ is to create 110 new full time jobs in two new service stations.

The company says that the jobs will come on stream in the new year in the stations in Clonsaugh in north Dublin and at Junction 3 of the M8 Dublin-Cork motorway.

The two stations are being developed at a cost of €10 million. In addition to the full-time jobs being created, an additional 200 people will be employed on the development of the sites which will include service stations, restaurants and shops.

One of the stations is located at Junction 3, adjacent to where the M50 meets the M1 at Clonshaugh in north county Dublin, while the other is at Junction 3 on the Dublin-Cork [M8] motorway near Ballacolla in County Laois.

Both stations will open in January.

Paul Candon of Topaz said the new sites heralded a period of significant investment by the company and further job creation: “Topaz is in job creation and expansion mode and we are constantly looking at sites with good potential – particularly near motorways.”
