The owner of a bar in Strokestown says they would never put the health of their customers at risk following a temporary closure order for their kitchen last month.

Last month the Food Safety Authority closed the kitchen area at the Hayloft Bar in Strokestown on two grounds.

The inspector claimed that there was no running hot or cold water in the staff toilet, or food room, which meant utensils or food could not be washed properly.

The order was imposed on December 11th and in a statement to Shannonside Northern Sound, the owners explain that the inspector claimed that the kitchen area required four sinks - but only three were installed.

The owners also claim that the lack of running water was because the supply had been turned off while repairs were carried out to a leak that had been discovered only hours previously.

The order was lifted on December 21st and the owners state that they understand the important role the FSAI plays and under no circumstances would they jeopardise the health of any "valued" customers.
