Is it a Guinness Brewery? Maybe it's a tennis court?

Now, all can be revealed.

After successfully navigating their way through the COVID-19 lockdowns, Paddy O'Shea's Tyre and Mechanical opened on Eumundi Rd on Friday, August 7.

If you are need of a car service or some new tyres, consider this your green light.

Co-owner Penelope Lena said she'd had lots of fun with locals asking about the unusual colour choice for the building.

"People have called it the lettuce building, or Kermit the frog," she said.

"It has certainly created a lot of interest.

"If I could paint my whole house in that colour I would."

The unique workshop name and colour scheme was in honour of Ms Lena's father and his proud Irish heritage.

A distinction he won't be privy to until the signs are revealed next Tuesday.

"He is a very proud Irish man," Ms Lena said.

"I am sure there will be some tears when he sees the signs."

Like many businesses before them, COVID-19 restrictions brought on a number of challenges in the lead up to their open day.

"You have to have a little bit of Irish blood in you to take that on," Ms Lena said.
