Irish Water: Water Restored To Two North Clare Communities

Irish Water says all customers in two North Clare communities who have been without supply for the past 10 days should now have their water restored.

Over 100 properties in the New Quay and Finavarra areas lost supply after water levels in the reservoir ran low on account of a number of techinical issues at the Turlough treatment plant combined with a leak in the area.

The water utility says these issues were fixed on Monday and supply has been gradually restored over the past number of days.


Local resident Gerry Naughton says it’s been a difficult period for residents:
