Latest update on water situation in Mallow & North Cork – 1st January 2011


All areas of Mallow Town now have water restored, at lower than normal pressure, except for Gooldshill Housing Estate and the St. Anthony’s Park/Spa Glen/Ironmines Area. There will continue to be intermittent disruptions to supplies in the Rockforest Area.

Tankers will continue to supply water daily at Gooldshill Housing Estate (on the entrance road from the Cork Road) & Bowling Green car park from 12.00noon to 6.00pm.

Repair crews are working throughout the Mallow Area over the week end and this may lead to short term disruptions to supplies while repairs are taking place.


A major leak is under repair today, at the Clonmel road junction Mitchelstown which requires shutting down the Mitchelstown North (Galtees) supply, for a large portion of the day. Consumers may expect a return to normal service this evening. All other schemes in the Mitchelstown Area have returned to normal service levels.

There are no significant problems in the Millstreet Area and water levels in reservoirs have recovered. Consumers in Cullen may experience some interruption to supply today while a bad leak is being repaired.


 All parts of Fermoy Town currently have a supply but it may be necessary to shut off the supply to the Cork Road Area, including St. Patrick’s Avenue, John Anderson Place, Devlin Street, Clancy Street, John Redmond Street, Springfield Estate & Duntahane Cork Road between 8.p.m tonight( 1st January) and 9.a.m tomorrow morning ( 2nd January) to allow reservoir levels be maintained.

Consumers on all other supplies in the Fermoy Area have water but the water pressure may be low in Ballyhooly and Conna village.


There were no problems with water supplies in the Charleville Area overnight. Some reservoirs are still not full but there are no plans to switch off any supplies today. Some consumers in Churchtown may experience interruption to supplies today while leaks are being repaired.


 The reservoirs in Kanturk and Newmarket are still recovering. The high areas of Newmarket can still expect interruption to there supply due to the low water level in Newmarket reservoir.

The Public are asked to conserve water, not leave water running overnight and check unoccupied dwellings/properties/farms for any leaks/breaks etc as soon as possible.

Cork County Council acknowledges and appreciates the continued co-operation of water consumers.
