Iceland creates 55 jobs across Dublin and Tipperary
Frozen food retailer Iceland's expansion in Ireland may be somewhat glacial by comparison, but it's certainly ongoing, signified by the opening of two new stores this month

Frozen food retailer Iceland has opened the doors to its newest store in Dublin today, at the Northside Shopping Centre in Coolock. The new store is the company’s twelfth in Ireland, following closely the launch of Iceland in Tipperary, at the Showgrounds Shopping Centre in Clonmel. Both stores have enjoyed an enthusiastic response from local customers.
The new stores have created a total of 55 new jobs, bringing Iceland’s total staff numbers in Ireland to 250 in 12 stores – an undeniable boost to the retail industry as a whole.
Meanwhile, Iceland is continuing with its recently-launched #PowerofFrozen campaign, through which it aims to highlight the benefits of frozen food as a nutritious, flavoursome and high-quality value for money.
“Iceland has been warmly welcomed by locals in both areas,” said Ron Metcalfe, managing director of Iceland Ireland, “and I would like to officially welcome all our new staff across both stores, who are joining the Iceland team to help us deliver the power of frozen to Irish customers.”
