Plans have been submitted for a major expansion of a North Tipperary nursing home.

Bushy Park Nursing Home in Borrisokane currently has capacity for 34 residents.

The planning application before Tipperary County Council is for a 59 bedroom extension together with extended car parking facilities.

The existing building covers 990 square metres while the proposed addition would add over 2,500 square metres.

A decision is due in early November from the local authority.
