Hundreds remain without water

Hundreds of residential and business premises across Donegal are still without water today.

Recent cold weather has burst a number of pipes in supply lines with over a hundred water services staff actively engaged in trying to maintain and restore water supply.

Donegal County Council shut reservoirs across the county last night to allow supplies to build up again with the disruptions expected to continue for the next few days.
