Chef Thomas and Stanislaus d'Anthouard,proprietors of the World Gate Restaurant in An Grianan< Termonfeckin.
The Bastille Day celebrations organised by the proprietors of the World Gate Restaurant in Termonfeckin have had to be cancelled for a second time due to yesterday’s retightening of the Covid-19 restrictions.
This is the second time the popular French restaurant have had to cancel the sold-out event which they had originally hoped to hold on Bastille Day which takes place on July 14th.
That was a non-runner because of the covid-19 restrictions so they postponed it until this coming Saturday, August 22, but now that too has had to be cancelled.
Chef Thomas told Drogheda Life this afternoon that he was “désolé” to have to call the event off as he and his partner Stan d'Anthouard had put so much hard work into organising it.

The event had promised to be a very special evening with guests from around the locality being joined by representatives of Drogheda’s twin town of Saint Mande to enjoy wine and beer tastings, hot and cold buffet dishes and live music.
Thomas told Drogheda Life today that they might re-schedule the event for September but that depended on the Covid-19 public health restrictions being lifted.
He assured those that had bought tickets that they could either have a full refund, use the money for a voucher for the restaurant, or for a ticket for the event whenever it takes place. Anyone who booked online will be contacted by email.
“It’s a terrible shame" Thomas said, "but C’est la Vie."
Meanwhile the restaurant remains open from Wednesday to Sunday.
