Printer-friendly version

Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th October 2011

Dublin City Council wishes to advise consumers that due to essential major emergency works being carried out on the water supply network by Fingal County Council in North Dublin, there will be an unavoidable disruption to water supply in the North East Area of Dublin City this weekend, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October 2011. The work will take place at the following locations: junction of Forrest Rd and Cooks Rd, (rear Dublin airport, Swords); Adjacent to Naul Rd/R132 Junction close to Cloghran Roundabout, Swords; and off road adjacent to Naul Rd/Forrest Rd.

Fingal County Council crews will begin work at 6am on Saturday 8th October and will continue until the job is completed.  Water supply will be diverted from elsewhere in the network throughout the disruption to reduce the impact the works will have on the number of homes that loose water completely.

The areas likely to be affected by this disruption can be viewed on a map from a link on our Website homepage It should be stressed that the area highlighted indicates that most likely to be affected by the water disruption but that some other areas on the periphery may also experience poor water pressure or loss of supply.

The areas likely to be affected are as follows:
