There'll be water shortages across Dublin all day today

Dublin City Council are reducing the water pressure in the city to facilitate Luas works.

YOU MIGHT HAVE to stick to the Ballygowan if you’re living in Dublin today.

Dublin City Council has advised that there’ll be reduced water pressure, and in some cases total loss of water supply, in the city today as a result of a “major water connection being made”.

The connection is being made to facilitate the Luas Cross City Line.

Here’s a map of the areas that will be affected:
