JD Wetherspoon has said “volatile” commercial property prices are putting the brakes on the company’s growth plans in Ireland.
 Wetherspoon’s five Irish-based pubs – located in suburban Dublin and Cork city centre – weren’t mentioned in the group’s latest trading update, but speaking after its publication, founder and chairman Tim Martin said they are currently performing well and the group remains committed to expanding in Ireland.
