Irish Water and Cork County Council are alerting customers that the Boil Water Notices for both the Killavullen and Whitegate Public Water Supplies remain in place.

The Boil Water Notice for Killavullen has been in force for over seven months since the 2 May 2022, because of high levels of turbidity in the supply.

Preliminary works are underway at the site, and Irish Water told RedFM News in a statement today that short-term upgrade works at the reservoir and treatment plant will begin in the coming weeks.

The water utility says, long-term, it plans to build a pipeline connecting Killavullen to the Mallow Public Water Supply Scheme.


The Boil Notice for Whitegate has been in place since the 29 October, affecting approximately 9,500 customers.

Irish Water says a major upgrade of the water treatment plant is needed for the Whitegate supply, but land has been acquired, and a contractor has been appointed for design and construction.

However, Cork County Council have confirmed that a full planning application is required and Irish Water is now hoping construction could commence in 2024.


Meanwhile Irish Water and Cork County Council are working to repair a burst water main causing supply disruptions to a large number of customers in Clonakilty and surrounding areas.

Crews are on the ground working to restore water as quickly as possible to impacted customers.

Repairs are expected to be completed by 5pm today.

The burst is impacting homes and businesses in Clonakilty town, Santry South, Santry North, Roosmore, Carrigafadda, Gortroe, Tullig, Santry East, Bealad, Mallatallavana, Lisavaird, Reenascreena, Cahermore, Froe, Ardagh and Bog Road, Rosscarbery, and surrounding areas.
