The latest addition to the Turnpike strip, C.S Fish has seen a large increase in the demand for seafood as owner Cathal Sexton observes record sales in recent weeks.

The family run seafood business which started out in Doonbeg in 2011, later opening a second store in Ennis, sources fresh fish locally, arriving from the factory each and every morning. Bolstering a wide array of products, Cathal argues that the shop contains one of the finest selections in Ireland.

Despite the closure of the factory during the lockdown, C.S Fish has continued to go from strength to strength. Cathal concedes that the necessary adaptations made within the store proved costly, however; both customer and staff wellbeing greatly overshadow any financial suffrage. Perspex screens were fitted within the shop, along with strategic emplacement of hand sanitizers as well as a maximum capacity order of three customers within the shop at any one time. An emphasis has also been placed on the needs of the elderly and vulnerable customers looking to top up on seafood.

Cathal commends the brilliance of his staff, holding Mario, the Manager of the Store, in high esteem, “He’s my main man in there, he’s the manager. He’s the man pushing all the parts inside there. The staff are an integral part to the whole operation, there would be nothing without them. I’m always busy and so they run the shop day to day for me. There are four members of staff here within the Ennis store. Mario has everyone on their toes and is always making new products, whether it’s special Stir Fry’s or Fish Cakes, there is always something new and exciting.”

The symbiotic relationship between businesses at Turnpike is strongly felt, in Cathals opinion, whereby strong support is offered at all times. Operating hours are aligned amongst the four stores so that customers can make a timesaving ‘one stop shop’ on the outskirts of the town. Cathal also remarks a loyalty invoked from West Clare as commuters make their way back home from the Clare Capital, they never fail to pop in and show their support and loyalty. Cathal would like to thank the local Turnpike community for their unwavering support in such times of uncertainty.
