The Tipperary ‘Closure Order’ refers to the food preparation area and associated food activities at the Maid of Erin public house, situated at No’s 9/10 Church Street, Tipperary Town, Co. Tipperary which has now been declared a ‘Closed Area’.

The Authority is a statutory, independent and science-based body, dedicated to protecting public health and consumer interests in the area of food safety and hygiene.
