UISCE Éireann – formerly Irish Water – is working in partnership with Cork County Council to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible to impacted customers following a reservoir interruption in Inchigeelagh.

Dedicated water services crews are onsite working on repairs and are making every effort to minimise disruption and restore normal water supply as quickly as possible. Customers in Inchigeelagh, Carrigleigh and surrounding areas may be impacted by reduced water pressure and water outages until works are completed. Repairs are expected to be completed by 5pm today. It typically takes up to three hours for normal water supply to fully restore to all customers as the water network refills.

Operations Lead for Uisce Éireann, Niall O’Riordan, said: 'Uisce Éireann understands the inconvenience when water interruptions occur and we would like to thank impacted customers in advance for their patience while we work to complete the repairs and restore normal supply as quickly as possible.'

Engineers informed The Southern Star they are working flat out all week, just to keep up with the leaks and breaks.
