Seven Closure Orders Served on Food Businesses in July


Closures included two locations in Dublin 9.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has reported that seven closure orders were served on food businesses during the month of July.  The orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive.

Three closure orders were served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

  • Sur La Mer (restaurant), Station Road, Rosslare Strand, Wexford
  • Monsoon Valley (restaurant), Unit 5, Building 2, Retail Park, Bundoran, Donegal
  • The Swiss Cottage Kitchen (restaurant), 400 Swords Road, Santry, Dublin 9

Four closure orders were served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

  • Golden Dragon Chinese Restaurant, 1st floor, 88 Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, Louth
  • Ruposhi Indian Restaurant, 1 Whitworth Road, Dublin 9
  • Heaven’s Cakes (food stall), Trading at the English Market, Grand Parade, Cork
  • The Coachmans Tearooms (restaurant), Dublin Road, Dromiskin, Dundalk, Louth

During the month of July, three successful prosecutions were carried out by the Health Service Executive on:

  • Omniplex Cinema Wexford (take away), Strandfield, Drinagh, Wexford
  • Indian Taste (take away), 43 St Marys Terrace, Ballybough Road, Dublin 3
  • The House Pizza (take away), 1 Shelbourne Terrace, Thomondgate, Limerick

Prof. Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, said: “Each Closure Order undermines consumer confidence in food safety which not only affects the food business involved, but the industry as a whole.  We’re urging food businesses to make sure that they have a food safety management system in place and that it is consulted on a regular basis and updated, where necessary, to ensure non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation do not occur.”
