Burst watermain causes supply disruption in Portmarnock

Update 5pm: Due to complexities at the site the expected repair time has been extended to 7pm. 


Irish Water is working with Fingal County Council to restore water supply to homes and businesses in parts of Portmarnock following a burst watermain. Crews are working to repair the burst watermain as quickly and as safely as possible.

Properties in the following areas may be impacted by disruption to their supply while the repairs are underway; the area encompassed by Limetree Avenue, Strand Road and Carrickhill Road; Dal Riada and surrounding areas.

The repairs are expected to be completed by 4pm. 

Once the repairs are successfully completed, normal water supply will begin to be restored. Full water supply may take 1-2 hours to return as water refills the network.
