Irish Water is working to restore normal water supply as quickly as possible for customers in Dunmanway following an ESB power outage.

The utility is working with Cork County Council to restore normal water supply following last night's ESB power outage at the water treatment plant, which has resulted in low water pressure.

Customers in Dunmanway, and surrounding areas, may experience reduced water pressure, particularly on higher ground, as well as intermittent water outages, said a spokesperson.

Irish Water said the supply is expected to be restored by Thursday, but a planned outage will be required tonight because production at the plant needs to be restarted.

‘Irish Water would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused when power outages occur,’ said Niall O’Riordan, operations lead for Irish Water. He also thanked customers for their patience.
