Background on issues related to closure of Grace Church Dundalk: Archive 1

Future of Dundalk church and Starbucks coffee shop secured

Grace Fellowship in Dundalk

A local church has been granted planning permission by Dundalk Town Council to retain its facility at the North Link Retail Park on the Coes Road.

Grace Fellowship had converted the retain warehouse into a church that included a Starbucks coffee shop, school and function rooms.

The church was fined last February after the building was described as a “firetrap” by district court Judge William Hamill.

The case had come before the court after the county council brought a prosecution against Grace Fellowship’s Hassan Boyle, alleging that changes to the building had started without a commencement notice and without a fire safety certificate.

Work was carried out earlier this year to render the building fire safe after the facility was briefly closed down last December.

Grace Fellowship now has full permission for the facility, thus ensuring the future of their Coes Road headquarters.
