Irish Water brief councillors on mains overall plans


Irish Water officials today briefed members of Donegal County Council on plans to improve over 45 kilometres of mains in 15 priority areas spread over 7 schemes.

The overall cost will be almost €14 million, with the work taking at least two years to complete.

Irish Water say this is one of the biggest investments in the country, reflecting the need for major works in Donegal.

Fifteen priority sections of water main spread over seven water supply schemes will benefit from this extensive project including Ballyshannon town; Ballybofey; Ballybofey South Backline; Argery Outlet and Argery to Rossgier; Three Trees, Quigley’s Point; Cabry, Redcastle; Carlin, Kerrykeel; Donaghmore, Fanad; Sheskinbeg; Derrybeg to Ranafast; Corker; Abbeylands; Bundoran West End; and Finner Dunmuckrum.

Spokesperson Richard Corrigan was one of those who briefed councillors this morning...........
