Water supply is due to be restored to all Achill householders and businesses later today. That’s according to local councillor Paul McNamara.

The Fianna Fail councillor told Midwest News this morning that two major bursts occurred on the main supply over the past two days, one occurred at Keem Road and the other at Shraheens. As a result hundreds of homes and businesses on Achill were left without a supply.

Irish Water and council staff have now repaired both bursts, but the reservoirs ran dry, and it will now take a number of hours before the full supply is restored.

Irish water is at present delivering tanks of water to the reservoirs to assist in replenishing the supplies.

In addition, a bowser/ tank with water is in place today at Tonragee (Eircode F28YO36)
