Locals were toasting their freshly made coffee this week at the officially opening of Streat Cafe in the Mill Centre. Minister Frances Fitzgerald was on hand to officially open the venue which has been trading for the past number of weeks.
“It is a real honour to have been asked to officially open Clondalkin’s newest cafe. I’m delighted to see so many locals here today because without your help and support I wouldn’t be here today in this capacity and neither would this brand new local business,” said Minister Fitzgerald at the official opening.
“Today has been a fantastic boost to the local economy and I’d like to pay tribute to the hard work and initiative of Amanda and Stephen who have opened this cafe and developed it into such an attractive and friendly space,” continued Minister Fitzgerald.
“As Minister for Children, I am particularly pleased to see a Kids Corner in the cafe, something I’m sure all parents will use,” said Minister Fitzgerald.
"I am pleased to see representatives from the Clondalkin and South Dublin Chamber here to celebrate this new business. It is vital for us to recognise the valuable contribution small and medium businesses play in the wider economy, and to support risk takers like Amanda and Stephen who are creating local employment. Streat cafe has been a real boost to the area and to the Mill Centre and I wish it well as it officially opens it doors,” concluded Frances Fitzgerald.
