Part of ongoing strategy to improve the service delivered to customers
Irish Water is upgrading the fleet of water services vans operating in County Sligo as part of its ongoing strategy to improve the service delivered to customers. This has included the delivery of 22 new work vehicles to Sligo County Council.
