Former Laois and Portlaoise footballer Colm (Wooly) Parkinson's partner, Itxi, is opening a top class Spanish tapas restaurant in Portlaoise.

The Spanish restaurant will be located on 37 Main Street, Portlaoise. This unit is between Ryan's pub and Permanent TSB with a big window looking out onto the street. The big window of the vacant unit has been decorated in the past.
