The well-known and much-loved ‘Catch of the Day’ fish and chip business
will be making its way to Carrigaline in the next few months.
Currently operating from a van in Kinsale, the seaside enterprise is now nearly 10 years old and is known on the bridge in Kinsale for its popular, authentic grub.
Two years ago the business was bought by Cathal O’Donovan, who’s
originally from Kinsale but now resides with his wife, Tracy, locally in Carrigaline.
Ever since then he has been on the lookout for units around Cork, particularly
Ballincollig, Douglas and Carrigaline, but nothing suitable ever cropped up.
However, this week it was announced that ‘Catch of the Day’ will be
coming to Carrigaline in the near future! Speaking to The Carrigdhoun, Cathal
said “We’ll be looking to be in the new
premises in the next 5-8 weeks. We are really excited to be coming down to
Carrigaline and opening our business to the people here. We’ve had a great two
years in Kinsale since we bought it and hopefully we can have similar success
The business hope to employ some local staff to their new unit, which
will be located in the Owenabue carpark, where ‘Heaven’s Kitchen’ previously
was (next to Ristorante Romano).
Cathal is also in the middle of purchasing a new wagon, and will be trialing their food on the Bridge in Kinsale on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week.
