written by Staff Writer March 23, 2023

Planning permission has been granted for a new drive-thru facility at Tobin’s complex in Letterkenny.

The filling station and store on the Port Road is set to undergo a significant expansion, with more convenience for customers.


Donegal County Council has given the go-ahead for the demolition of a dwelling on the site, to be replaced by an extension to the east of the main building. A drive thru lane will run from the rear of the building to the east side.

The filling station will remain in situ, while car parking layout will be reconfigured.

The development will include a kitchen and associated facilities, as well as material alterations internally to reconfigure the shop floor area to provide for sanitary and store accommodation

Permission was granted to Mr Eddit Tobin this month with 8 conditions. Some conditions related to flooding prevention, lighting (no L.E.D, neon or similar lights) and signage.
