Peter Gallagher, Regional Operations Lead with Irish Water, says Irish Water acknowledges the impact the notice has had and they sincerely regret the inconvenience.

The Do Not Consume notice was in place due to elevated levels of manganese in the water supply, and Mr Gallagher says "experts worked hard to resolve this issue as quickly and as safely as possible".
