A Café owner has been dubbed, ‘Ireland’s best boss’ by her staff after she stunned them by shutting up shop last Wednesday and sending them all on a trip to the seaside instead.

Delighted workers at Café Mana in Cavan town were shocked the previous evening when boss Eilish Tuipulotu ordered them to ditch their uniforms and grab their bikinis as they were all off to Rossnowlagh beach in Donegal.

So instead of working in the sweltering heat of a status orange warning, the staff of a popular Cavan cafe spent today working on their tans.

Eilish told The Star, ‘ I just thought the government have shut us down during the pandemic we had to close because of lockdown why the hell shouldn’t we close for a day in a heatwave.

‘I just decided that it was too hot in Cavan and the girls have been working very hard for the last few weeks since we reopened and deserved a day off.

‘It was great craic a few went in the sea kayaking, a few went body surfing,some went paddle boarding and a few just lazed about sunbathing,

‘They had more or less sobered up by the time they came in on Thursday but it’s lucky I am a pioneer as I had to do a fair bit that morning.

‘How long is it since we had such heat? It must be forty years and please God it’ll be as long again I can’t be giving them all the same day off every week.’
