One of three water boil notices lifted in Limerick

However, householders in a further two areas are being urged to take precautionary measures.

UP TO 3,500 people in Limerick have been told that their drinking water is safe to consume after one of three boil notices in the county was lifted.

The South West Regional Water Supply has now been deemed to be safe following the receipt of “satisfactory water quality test results” according to Limerick County Council and the HSE.

Dromcollogher, Broadford, Feohanagh, Feenagh, Kilmeedy and surrounding areas were affected.

However the remaining two notices remain in place  - in Ardagh Village and surrounding areas, served by the Ardagh Water Scheme, and in the Carrigeen area near Croom, served by the Carrigeen Water Scheme.

Director of services Paul Crowe said that further water testing is being carried out and these notices will be reviewed tomorrow “with a view to lifting the precautionary boil water notices in the coming days”.

The notices were issued last Friday amid fears that heavy rain fall may have contaminated drinking water.
