Carraig Donn seeks expansion

Retailer Carraig Donn is looking to expand outside of Ireland for the first time.

As the firm marks 50 years in business, Pat Hughes - co-owner with his brother Vincent - said the time was right for expansion. "We are looking at the UK, the Midlands," Pat Hughes said. "We are looking at potentially opening stores in two different cities in that region as a start."

There are 450 employed at 35 Carraig Donn stores nationwide and the firm has an annual turnover of €35m.
