Water Supply Returning to Tipperary

Uisce Éireann is working with Tipperary County Council to restore water supply as quickly as possible to over 30,000 impacted customers following a number of outages across the county. Area-specific updates can be found on

The outages impacted customers on the Galtee Regional, Ardfinnan Regional, Glenary (Clonmel) and Carrick-on-Suir (Linguan) Public Water Supply Schemes. The outages were caused by operational issues at each of the four water treatment plants. Alternative water supplies will remain in place until normal supply returns.

Remedial works were delayed due to the industrial strike action arising from a dispute between the Unite Trade Union and 7 Local Authorities, which took place between Wednesday, 2 August, and Friday, 4 August inclusive. Following notification yesterday that the industrial action in Tipperary had ceased, crews were immediately dispatched and worked hard to return supplies.

Repairs have been completed, however, due to size of the network it could take until Monday for water supply to fully return to some customers especially those at the end of the network. Alternative water supplies will remain in place until normal supply has been fully restored to all customers.

Water supply has returned to many areas on the Ardfinnan Regional Water Supply Scheme, however, water outages are still being experienced in Ballyclerihan Village, Lisronagh Village, Cahir Town, Poulmucka and surrounding areas. Water will continue to return throughout the day with full supply expected to return to all customers tomorrow, Sunday 6 August.

Meanwhile, those supplied by the Ardfinnan Public Water Supply Scheme may see disruption to supply at night while works continue until 12 August (between 9pm - 7am).
