DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL has advised about 40,000 homes across north Dublin will be affected by water supply disruptions over the weekend.

From 6am this morning to midnight on Sunday, essential works will be carried out on the network, leading to a reduction in service with reduced pressures and loss of supply in some area.

The work is taking place at three junctions – at the 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.

The areas most likely affected will be Clare Hall, Darndale, Clonshaugh, Donaghmede, Artane, Coolock, Kilmore, Kilbarrack, Riverside Estate, Barrycourt Road, Adare Estate, Millbrook Lorcan, IDA Clonshaugh, Belmayne, Santry, Swords and Clongriffin.

Both Dublin City and Fingal councils said they will provide a number of mobile tankers in the area and all efforts will be made to minimise the disruption.

Water supply will also be diverted from elsewhere on Dublin’s network to reduce the impact the works will have on any one area.

A map of the affected areas can be downloaded here.
