Irish Water working in partnership with Fingal County Council is progressing with works at the Malahide Road / Mountgorry Way Roundabout as part of the Malahide water supply scheme in order to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in Malahide and surrounding areas. The works are being delivered in adherence to current government and HSE Covid-19 advice.

These essential works may result in a disruption to supply between 9am and 5pm, today, Wednesday 24 March. Irish Water and Fingal will reconfigure the network to minimise the impact on homes and business. However, customers in the following areas may be impacted by lower than normal water pressure; Swords to Malahide Road; All of Ashley Estate; Chapel Lane; Clifford’s Lane; Mount Gorry; St Werburgh’s; All of Waterside Estate; Drinan Enterprise Centre; All of Lissadel Estate; Whitegables; Dunard; Chamley; All of Seabury Estate; Castle Downs; Warren Manor; All of Gainsborough Estate; All of Killeen Estate; Talbot Estate; Millview Estate and Road; Gaybrook Estate and Lawns; Abington; Lawson Spinney; Dublin Road Malahide from Sword Road to Back Road; Back Road from Dublin Road to Railway Bridge; All of Ard Na Mara; Sea Road; The Heaven; Yellow Walls Road; Texas Lane; Chalfont; Sonesta; Inbhir Ide; Bissett’s Strand; Drynam Road and Court; Foxwood; Milesian Estate; Feltrim Business Park; All of Holywell Estate; All of Feltrim Road; All of Drinan Estate; All of Drynam Estate; Muileann Estate; Kettles Lane; Russell’s Terrace; Streamstown Lane; All of Streamstown Estate; Carey’s Lane; Clairville Lodge; Auburn Grove.

Some additional areas have been impacted by these works including; Main Street, Swords; North Street, Swords; Seatown; New Court; Lissenhall; Estuary Road and surrounding areas. Irish Water regrets the impact caused on customers in these areas.

Whilst unlikely for the majority of customers, it is possible that some customers may experience water outages during the works. Once the works are completed, normal water supply will begin to be restored. Full water supply may take a number of hours to return to all impacted properties as water refills the network. Low pressure may be experienced until later this evening.

Speaking about the works, William McKnight, Irish Water said, “We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and working in partnership with Fingal County Council we will make every effort to minimise any disruption that these necessary works may cause. The delivery of these essential works will help to safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses in the area ensuring a safer more sustainable water supply.

Irish Water is working at this time, with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.
