Uisce Éireann crews working to repair burst in Tralee
31 January 2024
Uisce Éireann is working to repair a burst watermain in Tralee that may be impacting customers in Sundays Well, Cuil Feirne, Caherslee, Mounthawk, Ballyroe, Fenit Road, Tha Spa, Clogherbrien, Strand Street, The Kerries, Ballyrickard, Spa Road, Lohercannon, Kerrins Park, Blennerville, Curraheen, Annagh and surrounding areas of Tralee.
Every effort is being made to maintain water supply to as many customers as possible. Following repair works, It typically takes two to three hours for normal supply to fully restore to all areas as the water refills the network, especially for those on higher ground or at the end of the network.

“We understand the inconvenience that unplanned outages can have and we thank customers for their support while the repair works are ongoing. Our crews are making every effort to carry out repair works as quickly as possible.”
