The former Hacketts bookmaker outlet in Mountmellick is set to re-open following the acquisition of a number of Hackett outlets by BoyleSports.

BoyleSports has acquired a number of Hacketts outlets from the High-Court-appointed liquidators, Ken Tyrrell and Declan McDonald of PwC.

The stores, which will be reopened immediately, are at Cashel (Co Tipperary), Callan (Co Kilkenny), Mountmellick (Co Laois) and Rathkeale (Co Limerick).

Each of the four stores will be rebranded as BoyleSports outlets.

In a press statement, Boylesports said it was currently rolling out a €4m, three-year renovation programme across its estate.

“The newly-acquired shops will now be included in that programme.

“This will include the installation of a suite of new screens and free wi-fi facilities so that new and existing Hacketts customers at each of the outlets can enjoy the full range of BoyleSports products in the modern comfort which BoyleSports customers have come to expect,” they said.
