Almost 45,000 residents are impacted by low pressure water supply or outages across South and West Tipperary.
These have been caused by operational issues at a number of water treatment plants with work not starting until tomorrow Saturday due to industrial strike action.

Our priority remains the protection of public health and the environment through the delivery of safe, secure and sustainable water services where possible during this dispute, and we will do everything within our power to maintain safe water services.
Uisce Éireann’s Regional Operations Manager Jim Fitzgerald said: “This dispute is not with Uisce Éireann and is outside our control. However, it will regrettably impact Uisce Éireann customers. We have stood up our incident management team and are working closely with management in the local authorities to ensure that contingency plans are in place to minimise and manage disruptions to water and wastewater services.
On the dispute Jim said: “We would urge Unite to use the recognised dispute resolution mechanisms to resolve this issue and to engage with the relevant representative bodies. While industrial action is a right, we again call on Unite to comply with the codes of practice that ensure essential services are maintained for homes, hospitals and businesses.”
