A water tanker will be available at Rock Road car park today (Wednesday) from 12noon following a burst on the watermains from Lough Guitane Water Treatment Plant to Sheheree Reservoir on the Central Regional Water Supply Scheme.

Other locations include:
Firies/Farranfore: Firies Church Yard
Ballymacelligot: Church Yard
Cordal: Graveyard
Barraduff: Community Centre
Abbeydorney: Village
Tralee: Mounthawk, O’Donnell’s Bar, Brandon Car Park, Manor Shopping Centre and St. Brendan’s Church

Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tankers and to boil the water before consumption as a precautionary measure. Customers should follow HSE and government COVID-19 advice in relation to social distancing when collecting water from tankers.

Dedicated water service crews were mobilised last night and the pipe was repaired in the early hours of this morning. The section of burst pipe has been repaired and crews are working to gradually reintroduce water to the network. It is expected that water supply will begin to return to customers over the course of the day.

“Crews have been working hard through the night to complete the repairs,"  Anna Brosnan, Irish Water, said. "We understand the disruption unplanned outages can cause to customers and we appreciate your patience as we work to return the water supply to homes and businesses as quickly as possible.”

Irish Water understands the inconvenience when a burst occurs and thanks customers for their patience while they work to repair the burst and restore normal supply to impacted customers.

Their customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact Irish Water on Twitter @IWCare with any queries.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
