Uisce Éireann is working with Cork County Council to restore the water supply as quickly as possible to a number of customers in Youghal following a burst watermain. Areas affected are: Golf Links road including Carleton Village & Knockaverry and surrounds.

Dedicated water service crews have been mobilised and repairs are expected to be completed by 7:00pm today. Typically it takes two to three hours after this to restore normal supply to all customers affected by an unplanned outage.

To ensure the safety of the public and crews carrying out the repairs to the burst, traffic management will be in place and will be clearly signposted.

Cormac Bergin, Operations Lead with Uisce Éireann, said, “The repairs are being conducted as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimise disruption to the area and restore water for all customers. We understand the inconvenience unplanned outages can have on customers and we appreciate your patience as we work to return the water supply to homes and businesses as quickly as possible.”

Vulnerable customers who have registered with Uisce Éireann 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.
