It's set to close for the last time this month.

Rising costs have forced the closure of another midlands business.

Kafe U in Athlone has announced it will close at the end of this month after nine years in operation, as a result of the increased VAT rate along with labour, food and energy.

It says the business is no longer viable, and it must say goodbye to the 16 staff working at the cafe, as well as the thousands of loyal customers.

The company's Clara branch closed due to similar concerns in January.

It's inviting anyone who has a voucher to use them before the cafe closes for the last time on June 30th.
