A LOCAL go-karting business is closing down due to rising “insurance costs and rates”. The Grid Carlow broke news on its Facebook page last weekend.
In a statement, they said: “Hi all, it’s a sad day here at The Grid. Unfortunately due to circumstances out of our control we will no longer be able to keep our doors open!
“We would like to thank all of our customers immensely for the support we have received throughout the years and all the friends we have made along the way.

“Regrettably local rates and insurance costs have risen to amounts we simply cannot keep paying.
“We have tried our hardest to keep our doors open for the sake of our staff and customers, but now it is out of our hands.”
