•  Irish Water, working in partnership with Galway County Council, is advising that a burst watermain is causing an impact on water supply to customers in the Monivea area of county Galway , including Tysaxon, Ballydavid, Shraugh and areas to the east and west of the Monivea to Athenry Road.

    Repairs got underway early in the morning and it is expected that water supply will be restored by lunchtime but it may take 2-3 hours for normal supply to return to all properties.

    Irish Water's customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please visit the Water Supply Updates section of the Irish Water website.
