The Council said heavy rainfall and a rise in temperatures have led to a thaw in many parts of the County overnight and this morning. The local authority has urged customers to conserve water to the maximum extent possible but added that interruptions in supply were inevitable over the coming days.

Among the areas currently experiencing difficulties with supply are Caherconlish, Oola, Carrigmore, Doon, Newcastle West, Mountcollins, Abbeyfeale, Foynes and Ballyhahill.

According to Mr. Donal Brennan, Senior Engineer, Limerick County Council: "Customers throughout the County can expect interruptions in supply over the coming days. Council crews are continuing their efforts to maintain supplies and the public are asked to promptly repair any leaks within their premises. We will continue to ensure that disruption to public water supplies is kept to a minimum and supplies are restored as soon as practicable."

Meanwhile, Limerick County Council is continuing to provide water at static standpipes in various locations.
