Uisce Éireann (formerly “Irish Water”) is working in partnership with Louth County Council to carry out essential water mains flushing works to safeguard the water supply for homes and businesses in Dundalk. The works are scheduled to take place at various locations between Tuesday, 16th May, 2023 and Wednesday, 31st May, 2023.

To facilitate the safe delivery of the Water Network Maintenance Programme, customers specifically in the Town Centre, Pearse Park, Father Murray Park, O’Hanlon Park, The Demense, Oliver Plunkett Park, The Laurels, Legion Avenue, Castletown Road, Saint Nicholas Avenue, Coxes Demense, Castle Ross, Bellewsbridge, Fatima, Toberona, Saltown, Castle Park, Castle Heights and surrounding areas may experience low pressure, water discolouration and/or water outages for short periods.

Speaking about the works, Michael Cunniffe, Regional Asset Operations Lead at Uisce Éireann said, “Essential planned maintenance works can be inconvenient and working in partnership with our colleagues in Louth County Council, we will make every effort to minimise the disruption that these necessary works may cause. Customers may experience some temporary discolouration of water following the works and occasionally issues such as internal airlocks may arise.
