The closed activity at The Millrace covered all food preparation and service activities in and from the kitchen and ancillary stores as well as in the main bar and the storeroom at the rear of the main bar while that for the Milebush covered preparation and service of food.

During the same month, a successful prosecution was taken against Kearney’s Castle Hotel in Cashel’s Main Street by the HSE.
