Essential maintenance work may cause water supply disruptions to parts of Cork city this week, Uisce Éireann has warned.
The water utility company, which changed its name from Irish Water at the start of the year, said essential maintenance works, which are part of its National Leakage Reduction Programme, would affect some areas of the city this Thursday and Friday.
Uisce Éireann said works are scheduled to take place from 11pm on Thursday 9 March until 3am on Friday 10 March, with a traffic management plan in place throughout.
The company said those mains repair works may supply disruptions to Model Farm Road, Woodford, Wyndwood and surrounding areas.
