We would like to thank those affected for their patience and cooperation

Irish Water has confirmed that emergency repair works overnight last night (Wednesday) to a major leak on the Headford Road, Galway have been completed.

Leak was difficult to locate

The leak, which was difficult to locate, was near Dunnes Stores, over three metres under the dual carriageway. This meant that repairs were tricky and traffic management had to be put in place.

We would also like to thank the Galway City Council staff and contractors who worked overnight to carry out these essential works,”
