Burst water main repaired in South Leitrim

12 August 2022

Irish Water’s customers in South Leitrim can expect to have their water supply fully restored in the coming hours with repairs completed to a significant water main burst. 

The burst, which impacted homes and businesses in Ballinamore, Fenagh, Mohill, Carrigallen, Gortlettragh, Newtowngore and surrounding areas, was repaired yesterday afternoon and water supply restored to the majority of customers. 

However, some customers on higher ground will continue to experience interruptions to their supply until the network refills later today. 

Irish Water’s Kevin Smith thanked customers for their patience while works were been carried out. 

Irish Water and Leitrim County Council worked together to carry out the repairs as quickly as possible to minimise disruption to the community and restore water for all customers. We understand the inconvenience unplanned outages can have on customers and we appreciate their patience.”
