During this time people in the area are asked to continue to boil water before using it.Ian O’Mahony, Irish Water’s Operations Lead for Limerick, said, “We fully appreciate and understand the inconvenience a Boil Water Notice causes and would like to assure residents and businesses that we are working hard to restore a normal water supply as soon as it is safe to do so.
