Irish Water, working in partnership with Galway City Council and Galway County Council is working to restore the water supply in the Moycullen and Knocknacarra areas of Galway City following a burst pipe.

The severe overnight lightening storm damaged the pumps at the Clifton Hill Water Pumping Station. This damage in turn caused the rising water main on the Letteragh Road to burst.

The areas affected include Moycullen and Knocknacarra (north of Western Distributor Road). Areas of Barna may experience low water pressure. 

Crews have been on the ground since 11am this morning and work is continuing. It is expected that the repair will be completed late tonight and water will begin to be restored tomorrow morning. Full water service may take some time to return as water refills the network.

Irish Water apologies to customers for the inconvenience caused and thanks them for their patience while crews work to repair the pipe. Our Customer Care Team is available 24/7 on 1850 278 278.
