Irish Water says normal supply has been restored to people served by the Cairnhill reservoir after overnight restrctions were introduced last week.

The restrictions began after two leaks on the mains in quick succession the previous weekend and water was being turned off from 11pm each night until 7 am the following morning.

Areas affected included Drumlish, Monaduff, Enybegs, Lettergullion, Lislea, and Cloontumpher.

Irish Water says thankfully water levels at the reservoirs have recovered to a sufficient level to maintain a continuous water supply to customers.

They are still asking though that people not waster water during warm spells and try to put some conservation practices into use like not leaving taps running for shaving or brushing teeth.
