FERRY DELIVERIES OF water are still being carried out by Irish Water and Galway County Council to Inis Meáin amid an ongoing water shortage on the Aran Island.

A spokesperson for Irish Water told TheJournal.ie that the situation is being monitored “on a daily basis”.

The ferry deliveries of water supplies began on Wednesday due to depleted reserves on the island.

Water restrictions remain in place for Inis Meáin, and will continue “until there is substantial rain fall to replenish the water supply on the island”, the spokesperson confirmed today.

Water restrictions have also been introduced for nearby Inis Oírr, but there are no reported issues with the water supply on Inis Mór.
