The hosepipe ban has been extended in 16 counties until the end of September, but is being lifted in ten counties in the north west of the country - including Mayo, Roscommon, Galway, Sligo & Leitrim.

Irish Water says it's necessary to extend the hosepipe ban in Dublin, Louth, Meath, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Offaly, Westmeath, Carlow, Wicklow, Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Tipperary for another month to conserve water supplies, as levels in rivers lakes and ground sources remain lower than normal.

The ban is being lifted for 10 counties in the north west, due to increased rainfall.

These include Mayo, Galway, Clare, Roscommon, Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal, Longford, Cavan & Monaghan.
