A prime retail spot in Limerick city centre which has been vacant for more than a year is to be occupied again. 

British retail chain The Works, which sells books, arts and crafts, toys and games and a wide range of stationary goods is to rent the premises located beside O’Mahony’s Bookshop on the city’s main thoroughfare. 

The Works already has stores across the Republic of Ireland including several in Dublin and outlets in Cork, Killarney, Athlone, Gorey, and Kilkenny.
