Some homes and businesses in Dublin face water cut-offs tomorrow

Live around Parnell or Moore Street? Get those pots and pans ready.

HOMES AND BUSINESSES around Parnell Street and Moore Street in Dublin will be without water for most of the day tomorrow, as supply is cut off to facilitate work on Luas Cross City.

A series of rolling cut-offs have been taking place this year as the light rail project continues.


Hawkins Street and parts of O’Connell Street also had their water restricted back in June.

“We always aim to turn the water off for as short a time as possible,” a notice from Luas Cross City tells customers. 

Your water may go on and off more than once, between the times given below, but you should still not use it.

Householders, cafés, shops and restaurants will be affected between 8am and 5pm tomorrow.

And customers are being told that in exceptional circumstances the shut-off could be extended.

Luas Cross City will link the two existing Luas lines in the city centre, and will connect Cabra – at Broombridge rail station – to Stephen’s Green.

There will be 13 stops along the new route, including one at the new DIT campus at Grangegorman.

The project is due to be finished at the end of 2017.
