Water cut off throughout large parts of Clonmel

Water disruption throughout large parts of Clonmel is expected to last until 1pm on Saturday.

Irish Water staff are working on a burst 10" main at Highfield Grove, near the by-pass.

Large parts to the north of the town are affected, including the Medical Missionaries nursing home.

An Irish Water statment said essential works to repair the main may cause supply disruptions and low pressure.
