23 July 2021

Crews are working to repair the burst as quickly and as safely as possible

Irish Water and Kerry County Council are working to repair a burst watermain near Farranfore. The burst is impacting water supply to homes and businesses in Farranfore and surrounding areas including Scartaglin, Cordal, Currans, Currow, Farranfore, Ballymacelligott, Firies, Castlemaine and Milltown areas.

Crews are working to repair the burst as quickly and as safely as possible and restore water supply to homes and businesses in the affected area. Works are expected to be completed this evening. We recommend that you allow 2 to 3 hours after the estimated restoration time for your water supply to fully return.

Traffic management, including diversions, will be in place while the works are being carried out.

In the meantime it is important that people in surrounding areas continue to conserve water in order to reduce the pressure on local supplies which will be depleted as a result of this burst. Tips on conservation can be found at
