Two more Irish restaurants have been issued with closing orders

Two more food businesses are getting the chop.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland have reported that Enforcement Orders for two Irish restaurants have been put in place for breaches of food safety legislation.


A Closure Order, under the FSAI Act, 1998, has been served to Earl's Delicatessen, School of Architecture, University College Dublin, Richview, Clonskeagh in Dublin 14.

Meanwhile, a Prohibition Order, under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010, has been issued to Sheahans Butchers, Church Street, in Caherciveen in Kerry.

The Enforcement Orders were implemented by the HSE, who, in January, also prosecuted food businesses in Waterford and Donegal, including; Kelleghan Catering Food Stall, Main Street, in Tallow and Millbridge Meats, 3A Millbridge Court, in Kilmacrennan.

Speaking after the latest issues, the Chief Executive of the FSAI, has said:


"Food businesses must recognise that the legal onus is on them to make sure that the food they sell or serve is safe to eat.

"This requires ongoing compliance with food safety and hygiene standards.

"Food businesses should take full advantage of the information and support provided by the inspectorate and the FSAI."
