Residents of Clare Island are currently in their 10th day without a water supply for the full island.

According to a press release from Community Development Coordinator Joanne Carroll, residents in the North of the island had water restored in their taps after 10 days of disruption.

Those in the west of the island are still without running water.

This disruption comes just six short weeks since the lifting of Clare Island’s fifth Boil Water Notice in two years, the press release says.

According to the press release:

“No notification or warning of disruptions was given to the island residents, of any kind, prior to Monday 13th November 2023 when Joanne Carroll, Community Development Coordinator for the island contacted Uisce Eireann for an update.”

We’ll hear more on this story over the weekend as part of our Midwest Radio News Bulletins.
