‘Mcdonald’s to Greystones’ objectors meet online opposition
OBJECTORS TO McDonald's coming to Greystones have met some opposition in the form of social media.
A new Facebook page ‘Bring McDonald's to Greystones' has been live for the past number of days with support for up to 40 new jobs in the area.
However, many in the area are opposed to the fast food restaurant opening up in the town.
‘ The development will expose children from the age of five onward to permanent advertising of fast-food,' said Malcolm Oakley of Redford Park.
The development is proposed for the Blacklion Centre, which is located close to two existing primary schools.
A secondary school is also expected to open there next year.
Any submissions on the matter must be made in writing to Wicklow County Council within five weeks of January 18 and must be accompanied by a €20 fee.
