Large numbers of homes and businesses in Claregalway and surrounding areas are without water today due to a leak.
Irish Water has said that a leak is affecting the water supply to Lisheenavalla, Gortatleva, Lissarulla, Caherlea, Cregcarragh, Cashla and surrounding areas.
Repair works are underway, and are currently expected to be completed by 5pm on Tuesday afternoon.
Typically, it takes two to three hours following repairs for normal supply to restore to all customers affected by an outage.
Ronan Daly of Irish Water, commented: “The repairs are being conducted as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimise disruption to the area and restore water for all customers.
“We understand the inconvenience bursts can have on customers and we appreciate your patience as we work to return the water supply to homes and businesses as quickly as possible.”
