Posted by


THERE are further problems with the water supply to the greater Tralee area and beyond this evening.

Kerry County Council has posted on their social media page that “a further water mains break is impacting the Central Regional Water Supply Scheme tonight and will cause disruption to supply throughout Wednesday while repairs are completed.

Impacted areas include Tralee, Killarney, Castleisland, Farranfore-Firies, Ballymacelligott and surrounding rural areas. Irish Water and Kerry County Council will provide further updates as the supply is restored. We appreciate your patience.”

Cllr Mikey Sheehy received an update tonight from Kerry County Council water services that a decision has been made to immediately shut off water across the central regional scheme to ensure that the remaining water can assist with restoring supply to customers as soon as repairs to the main are effected. Crews are onsite presently commencing the repair.

The water supply lines to the hospitals in Tralee and Killarney will be kept operational and the Council are making direct contact to all nursing homes affected and offering assistance as required should they need storage tanks topped up.

They are arranging relevant public messaging to advise of the necessary water shut offs in the system which will affect a large number of people.
