Crews working to repair burst water main in North Roscommon

13 September 2022

Information below is relevant until further updates are provided here or on our Supply and Service Updates section.

Crews are on the ground in Co Roscommon this afternoon repairing a burst water main supplying Fairymount, Moyne and Loughglynn. 

Every effort is being made to maintain supply to as many customers as possible but the burst is impacting water supply to customers and businesses in the three North Roscommon areas. Repairs are expected to be completed later this evening, but it may take a number of additional hours to refill the system and restore normal supply to all customers. 

Irish Water’s Ger Greally apologised to the customers affected. 

We understand the inconvenience unplanned outages can have on customers and we appreciate their patience as we work with Roscommon County Council to repair the burst and return the water supply.

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Irish Water receive direct communications from us for planned and unplanned outages lasting more than four hours. 

Our customer care team is available to help 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For further updates please see the Irish Water website.
