About Mulkerns

Established in 1976 by Paul Mulkerns, the Mulkerns brand was one of the first stores to offer much needed convenience to the community; and has been supplying fresh foods and quality services for over 40 years.

Initially located at 1 Newtown Road, in the village of Newtowncloughoge, the business outgrew its premises and a new Supermarket, Filling Station and Post Office was constructed at its current location on the Forkhill Road in 1994.

Since relocation, the business has continued to expand and develop, and the store has grown into a complete shopping experience including a Deli, a Butchery, an extensive Off Sales department, in-store Florist by ‘O’Neill’s Flowers’ & in-store bakery by ‘The Corn Dolly’.

Mulkerns EUROSPAR is now a multi-award winning supermarket in its class.
