Works to replace a section of the water network in Parteen are due to get underway early next month.

Fire crews from Shannon have distributing water to locals in the Parteen area where the supply has been interrupted for over a week.

Irish Water issued a notice advising water consumers in the Parteen and Clonlara Areas of the problem.

The utility has now said: “Irish Water is aware of a series of recent bursts in the Parteen area. Crews are on site as repairs to the network are ongoing and updates will be provided as the work progresses.”

“This is as a result of the poor condition of the network and Irish Water has approved the replacement of a section of water main in the area, which is intended to address the frequent nature of bursts and the inconvenience to residents,” the spokeswoman said.

This work is scheduled to begin on 4 July.
