Irish Water is progressing works to lift the notice as quickly and as safely as possible, in consultation with the HSE.

Irish Water Operations Lead, Niall O’Riordan, regrets the inconvenience to impacted customers, saying:

“Public health is Irish Water’s number one priority. We acknowledge the inconvenience caused to homes and businesses over the past month. We have increased our efforts in an attempt to try and lift the notice before Christmas, however, Boil Water Notices are complex and it is difficult to put a timeframe on when we will be in a position to lift the notice. We will continue to keep the community as informed as possible and again thank everyone for their patience as we work towards lifting this Boil Water Notice, in consultation with the HSE.
