Irish Water, working in partnership with Kildare County Council is working to restore the water supply in Leixlip and surrounding areas following a major watermain burst in Captains Hill in Leixlip.
Homes and businesses in the following areas may be impacted by water outages while the repairs are carried underway; Riverforest, Glendale, Avondale, Saint Mary's Park, Riverdale, Dun Carraig, Main Street, Leixlip and surrounding areas in Co. Kildare.
