Closure Order for Paud O’Neills

The music bar venue located in the back yard of Paud O’Neills pub in Langford Street, Killorglin, Kerry, was one of six Closure Orders and one Improvement Order served on food businesses during April for breaches of food safety legislation which included a Closure Order on Ceann Sibéal Hotel’s kitchen and outside vegetable preparation area in Ballyferriter, Tralee, County Kerry.



The Enforcement Orders were issued by Environmental Health Officers in the Health Service Executive.

Among the reasons for the Enforcement Orders were: Sewage and waste observed in the rear yard adjacent to refuse bins; cigarette ash, butts and broken glass observed throughout the bar premises; mould growth observed on the internal surface of an ice-making machine; dirty bar equipment including blackened beer taps; one sink being used for the preparation of raw meat, cooked food as well as for the washing of vegetables; partially cooked chicken stored at a room temperature of 15.5°C; chopping boards for ready-to-eat foods worn and engrained with dirt; no hot running water at sinks to clean utensils; the surfaces of all cooking equipment were coated with congealed grease and no food allergen information provided to the consumer.
