BUSINESSES and residents in Swinford are being affected by a burst water main today.

Repairs to the burst main is causing supply disruptions at Main Street, Bridge Street, Market Street, and surrounding areas.

Mellett's Pub is one business that has had to put up the 'Closed' sign today as it has no water.

A sign on their door this lunchtime said they will open as soon the water comes back.

Uisce Éireann (formerly Irish Water), on their website, say works are scheduled to take place until 6 p.m. today.

They recommend property owners allow two to three hours after the estimated restoration time for supply to fully return.
