17 May 2022

Irish Water, working in partnership with Kerry County Council is working to repair a burst water main in Ardfert in county Kerry. Crews are working to restore water as quickly as possible to the 500 homes, including a school and businesses that are affected in the area.

Oliver Harney of Irish Water said;

"A burst water main is affecting the water supply in the greater Ardfert area including Tubrid, West Commons, Sackville, Listrim, Spa as far as Ballyroe . We are currently working to resolve the issue and the supply should be restored later today. A water tanker will be available at Ardfert Church from 12 midday today and a reminder to the community that this water must be boiled before use. We thank the community for their patience and co-operation as we work through the issue and hope to have normal water supply restored this afternoon."
