Irish Water is carrying out emergency watermain repairs in three areas of Drogheda today - Barrack Street, Peter Street and Magdalene Street and households and businesses in these locations and surrounding areas may experience low water pressure and/or outages for short periods today until 6pm.

“Irish Water and Louth County Council understand the inconvenience caused when repair works occur and thank customers for their patience while we complete these essential works and restore normal supply to impacted customers. Irish Water and Louth County Council regret any inconvenience caused.
