Jo'Burger Group has confirmed that it has gone into liquidation, closing some of Dublin's best-known restaurants.
"A combination of factors including challenging trading conditions have forced this move," the company said in a statement posted on social media.
It added: "We would like to thank our many customers for their years of support, but mostly thank you and sorry to all our crew and suppliers for their dedication and trust." Owned by businessman Joe Macken, the group operated outlets in the city centre, Rathmines and Smithfield. Its Crackbird, Hey Donna, Bar Giuseppe and Jo'Burger restaurants have closed.
