Quinn’s Pub in Drumcondra was closed by the Health Service Executive for two days after the first All Ireland hurling final.
The pub’s closure was one of 12 that was ordered by the Food Safety Authority Ireland in September under rules that deem there to be “a grave and immediate danger to public health.”
The closure order was served on Quinn’s under food safety legislation on Monday 8 September, the day after the drawn All Ireland hurling final between Kilkenny and Tipperary. It was lifted two days later.
A prohibition order was served on Quinn’s on the same day telling the company operating the favourite GAA haunt to withdraw all foodstuffs that were stored in the basement cellar.
This included a stipulation to remove bottled drinks stored in the basement. All foodstuffs that were stored in this area at the time of the inspection remain prohibited from sale.
The pub is one the most popular meeting spots for GAA fans because of its proximity to Croke Park and is regularly extremely busy on match days.
according to the FSAI spokesperson.
