Irish Water and Cork County Council engineers are currently investigating an issue on the Mitchelstown Public Water Supply Network.

Engineers have been investigating the issue over the weekend but some customers may now experience a water outage.

Regional Operations Lead for Irish Water, Pat Britton explained: “Crews have been out all weekend trying to pin point the exact location of the issue and we hope to have this rectified as soon as possible. During this period, customers may experience intermittent reductions in pressure or supply.

“We understand the inconvenience caused when these issues occur and thank customers for their patience while we complete these essential works to safeguard the water supply for customers.”

Areas that may be affected include Mitchelstown, Garryleigh, Corracunna, Ballyarthur, Kilbehenny, Garrane, Kilglass, Curragh More, Furrow, Gurteennaboul, Pollardstown and Ballgiblin.

“We are asking customers in these areas to be mindful of how they use water and to conserve when possible. However it is important to continue to follow the HSE guidance on hand washing.” Pat added.
