A hospital café was one of seven food businesses to receive closure orders during April, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland has reported.

CC's Coffee Dock in Our Lady's Hospital, Navan, Co Meath, was served the closure order on April 1, 2015.

The Health Service Executive confirmed that an issue with rodents - and specifically a rat - had led to the order which was lifted on April 4 after remedial action was taken.

Growing Enterprise Together Ltd at Jim O'Donnell's Yard on Atlas Avenue, Dock Road, Limerick received a closure order on April 24, as did Star Pizza, Denmark Street, Limerick, on April 29.

Joe's Family Butchers, Athlumney Centre, Johnstown, Navan, Co Meath, received a closure order on April 29 ordering it to halt the mincing of meat in the premises.

Butchers Polski Sklep Miesny was issued with a closure order on April 1 instructing it to stop the handling and cutting of raw meat in the basement of 50 South Street, New Ross, Co Wexford, while Hartley's Fish & Food on the Main Street, Tramore, Co Waterford, was issued with a closure order on April 30.
