Works underway to restore supply in Rathoath and Kilbride

28 December 2021

Irish Water, working in partnership with Meath County Council wish to advise that some customers in the Rathoath, Kilbride and their environs in East Meath may be without water or experience low pressure due to ongoing repairs to burst on a 400mm trunk water main. Crews were mobilised quickly and repairs are estimated to take another 4-6 hours for completion. Some customers in Ashbourne may also experience low pressure until tomorrow afternoon when the reservoir has been replenished. 

Customers should contact Irish Water directly on our customer care helpline, open 24/7, on 1800 278 278. Updates will be available on the Water Supply Updates section of the Irish Water website and via Twitter @IWCare.
