Popular shops looking first class

By Ciara Quinn

S inn Féin Councillor Caoimhín Mac Giolla Mhín says he’s delighted with the new look at Gransha shops. Work has been going on for months on a new public realm scheme in the busy  shopping area. Both Cllr  Mac Giolla Mhín and his SF colleague, West Belfast MP Paul Maskey, have been working closely with the Department for Social Development [DSD) and residents and businesses to ensure the scheme is completed as quickly as possible.

“This investment already has visually transformed the Gransha shops area and will hopefully bring additional footfall and business to the local traders, in these difficult times,” said Cllr Mac Giolla Mhín. “Having grown up in Gransha and with my parents still living there, it is wonderful to see how the area will benefit from this high specification and quality scheme.”

Paul Maskey said he hopes the new-look shops will benefit residents, shoppers and businesses.

“This is one of a number of successful schemes in the Upper Falls area my office has been involved in with DSD officials. Speaking with local residents and businesses, despite some temporary inconvenience, they all agree that the shops have never looked so good and that this is a high quality and very worthwhile scheme.

“All that needs to happen now is a new surface between the shop fronts and the Glen Road which will completely lift this row of local independent businesses.”
