Supply was also be turned off to the Twin Towns area and the Rosses and Gweedore areas.

The water supply was tirned back on this morning at 8am.

The restrictions are due to the adverse weather with many people are leaving taps running in an effort to stop their water freezing, while in other cases there are bursts and leakages which have yet to be identified.

The council says Its intention to have no restrictions on water supplies this eve or Christmas day with the situation to be reviewed thereafter
