Frontline workers can cash in their chips at a Slane takeaway over the coming week.

In what is being labelled a ‘superheroes’ initiative, Romayo’s on the Collon road began serving meals free to HSE frontline workers,gardai, defence force staff and members of the fire service.

The restauarnats Dario Macari declared, ‘National Superheroes day was Sunday April 26th, so we believed it to be fit and proper that we acknowledged those on the frontline of the fight against Covid -19.

‘We did think of setting up a delivery system to them but when we asked the feedback we got was they would prefer to eat after work rather than during their shift.

 

‘We’re offering a selection of our favourite meals – fish and chips meal, doner kebab meal, snack box meal, 1/4 pounder meal, chicken fillet burger meal or a battered sausage meal.

 

‘We are taking strict measures to prevent the spread of the virus including constant washing, disinfection, limiting the number of people in each premises and social distancing when inside.’
