Apache Pizza on Pearse Street is one of six premises which were forced to close in February by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
An inspection report of the premises says that "Substantial rodent droppings were present on the floor around the grease trap which is located in the kitchen. The grease trap is in a small cupboard which is not pest proofed."

- Carrickdale Hotel (Closed part: Food area only), Carrickarnon, Dundalk, Louth.
- Hennessy Garden Centre, (Closed part: Hennessy Garden Centre Café), Carlow Road, Gowran, Kilkenny.
