Water supply has been restored to parts of Parteen and Clonlara.
Residents of the South East Clare areas were without water for two days after a water main burst in the early hours of Thursday morning. Supply was restored on Saturday evening while engineers had rerouted a series of pipes on Friday giving an amount of homes supply overnight. Alternative water supplies were made available at Lackyle Housing Estate, Ardnarcrusha and Westbury Shopping Centre.
Earlier this year, Irish Water customers in Pareen had to endure a six day outage while a further two faults also occurred on the same line in 2018.
Cllr Cathal Crowe has confirmed he will be tabling a motion for the January meeting of Clare County Council on the matter, “I will raise at a political level the need for serious capital investment by Irish Water in our locality. Enough is enough”.
