This SDL occupies a strategic location along the N69 road corridor in close proximity to both Limerick City and the Port of Foynes. The landbank is zoned for large-scale marine related industry or industrial projects of national/international scale and is recognised as having potential synergies with the Port of Foynes for port-related development. Other compatible developments healthordisease.com may be feasible on the site provided they do not compromise the primary development objective of providing for large-scale industrial investment.


Development Considerations

  • Proximity to Foynes Port (10 km), an EU Ten-T Tier One Port which handles a range of liquid, break and dry bulk vessels as well as providing warehousing, cargo handling and logistics services, with a minimum water depth of 10.5m.
  • Frontage to existing National Primary road (N69), route connecting Limerick City (30 km) and Foynes Port (10 km), route currently  subject to significant upgrade plans.
  • Road linkage with Limerick Southern Ring Road provides access to major cities via Ireland’s motorway network, linkage with Limerick  Tunnel allows easy direct access to Shannon International Airport.
  • Direct access to Shannon International Airport which provides daily  flights to major hubs in the USA, UK and Europe in addition to air freight services.
  • Adjacent to rail network from which passenger services connect with major cities and towns.
  • Fibre optic Broadband is available from multiple Telecoms providers.
  Infrastructure and Material Assets
  • A new Waste Water Treatment Plant is under consideration, development proposals may need to consider an onsite WWTP subject to the volume and characteristics of effluent to be treated.
  • There are restrictions on potable water supply but proposals to pipe water from a water treatment plant in Limerick are under  consideration.
  • Power is supplied via a 110kV line which runs close to the South  Western aspect of the site.
  • The Galway to Limerick high-pressure Natural Gas pipeline (70 bar  pressure) is located approx. 1.5km to the South of the site, a spur  from the main pipeline would be required to bring gas to the site.

Key Features

  • 98 Hectares of zoned land available immediately for development
  •  A prime greenfield estuarine site on the Southern bank of the Shannon Estuary
  • This SDL benefits from both statutory and policy support at local and National level
