Repairs are currently being carried out on burst pipe in Foynes
Water supply should now be restored to most customers
Water supply should now be restored to most customers in the Foynes, Shanagolden, Loughill, Ballyhahill and surrounding areas which were impacted by a burst water main yesterday.
Crews from Irish Water and Limerick City and County Council are carrying out repairs at present but due to the location of the burst and size of the pipe this is a very complex operation and may take some time to complete.
Rerouting water around the network.
In the meantime, arrangements have been put in place to reroute water around the network. There may be variations in pressure or temporary supply interruptions in some areas while this is taking place.
Any customers who are experiencing ongoing loss of supply should contact our customer care helpline at 1850 278 278 to report it.
We apologise for any inconvenience as we work to repair this large burst and restore a normal water supply as quickly as possible.
