Trivia & History
The opening of the services has given Applegreen a monopoly on motorway services between Belfast and Dublin.
In planning this one was referred to as 'M1 services', which can be confused with a petrol station on the A4 which pre-dated Northern Irish motorway services. Some sources (incorrectly) call this service area Ballyskeagh.
The services is extremely similar to its sister site at Templepatrick. Unlike the state-designed Irish sites, this one is much more similar to a large petrol station. The crowded amenity building has a small first-floor mezzanine, overlooking the fast food units.
