Water restored to hundreds of customers in Galway

Irish Water says water supply has now been fully restored to all customers in Galway City, where hundreds of homes and businesses were affected.

It follows disruption to many areas on the west side of the city over the past two days after a water main supplying the Tonabrocky reservoir burst on Friday evening.

Areas affected included Moycullen, Knocknacarra, Kingston, Taylor’s Hill, Clybaun, Cappagh, Letteragh Road, Ballymoneen Road, Bishop O’Donnell Road and higher-lying areas in Barna.

Repairs were completed in the early hours of Saturday morning, but many customers were today still experiencing low water pressure and disruption.

In a statement, Irish Water said water levels have been fully restored at the reservoir and further queries can be directed to its helpline at 1850 278278
