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.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
