Health inspectors investigating the deadly salmonella outbreak believe 50 people became ill with the bug across 17 areas in north Dublin.
Over 50 people, including four children, have fallen ill on the Northside after the suspected outbreak.
Dr Kevin Kelleher, of the HSE, said that he could not comment on individual patients, but confirmed it was now believed that people became ill in 17 different areas where food was served - reports the Irish Independent.
The bug was reported just a week after a Dublin mum died of salmonella on May 14.
Sandra Murphy O' Brien is understood to have died from food poisoning believed to have been caused by salmonella.
HSE chiefs have shut down the kitchens of a Pormarnock pub as they investigate the case - and try to confirm whether salmonella was to blame.
It is understood several other people at the private party fell ill and were hospitalised.
