It's expected that the burst water main - which is causing considerable delays to traffic in Farranfore today (Friday) - should be fixed by this evening.

Irish Water and Kerry County Council are currently working on rectifying the issue which is impacting water supply to homes and businesses in Farranfore and surrounding areas including Scartaglin, Cordal, Currans, Currow, Farranfore, Ballymacelligott, Firies, Castlemaine and Milltown areas.

Crews are working to repair the burst as quickly and as safely as possible and restore water supply to homes and businesses in the affected area. Works are expected to be completed this evening. It's recommended to allow two to three hours after the estimated restoration time for your water supply to fully return.

Traffic management, including diversions, will be in place while the works are being carried out.

In the meantime it is important that people in surrounding areas continue to conserve water in order to reduce the pressure on local supplies which will be depleted as a result of this burst. Tips on conservation can be found at www.water.ie/conservation.

Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a burst occurs and thanks customers for their patience while we work to repair the burst and restore normal supply to impacted customers. Our customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1850 278 278 and customers can also contact us on Twitter @IWCare with any queries. For updates please see the water and supply services section of our website.

London-based South Kerry man, Dan Tim O’Sullivan, will exercise his rights as a Freeman of the city by herding sheep over a London bridge on Sunday.

Mr O’Sullivan from Kells, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2019, in recognition for his work in the construction industry.

He employs over one thousand people through his labour hire firm ‘Danny Sullivan and Sons’, and has employed countless Kerry people, many of them from his native South Kerry, since its foundation in the mid-1980s.

The Freedom of the City of London allows the bearer to herd one hundred sheep over the landmark Tower Bridge.

However, logistical issues and traffic management plans mean the number of sheep has been reduced to less than 10 and the event will now take place over nearby Southwark Bridge.

London-based news channels, including the BBC, are expected to cover the event while hundreds of his family and friends from South Kerry will be in London to witness the unique event.
