Problematic water mains being replaced in Killyconnigan to reduce disruption to local residents

Tuesday, 27 July 2021 – Irish Water, working in partnership with Monaghan County Council, is replacing over 1.5km of problematic, old water mains in Killyconnigan, Monaghan town that were prone to frequent bursts and leakage and caused water supply disruptions for customers in the area. The old water mains are being replaced with new high density polyethylene (plastic) pipes.

Outlining the benefits of these essential works Declan Cawley, Irish Water, explained: “These works will benefit the local community in Killyconnigan by strengthening and reinforcing the water network, and minimising disruptions in their water supply by reducing leakage and unplanned outages when bursts occur on the existing main.

“Upon completion, there will be significant improvements in network performance and levels of customer service in this area in terms of efficiency and security of supply.”

It is planned that works will commence in August and will take place between the Rossmore Industrial Estate, Cortolvin Road and Park Road, Killconnigan, Monaghan town. The works are due to be completed by November and will be carried out by Farrans Construction Ltd on behalf of Irish Water.

This project is one example of how Irish Water is working in partnership with Local Authorities to provide a more reliable water supply and reduce leakage. Fixing leaks can be complicated but we are making progress. In 2018 the rate of leakage nationally was 46%, by the end of 2020 it was reduced to 40%. We are currently on course to achieve a national leakage rate of 38% by the end of 2021.

Declan added: “To facilitate the safe delivery of the works, there will be some traffic management in place however local and emergency access will be maintained at all times.

“The works may involve some short-term water outages and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water outages. We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.

“This mains replacement work is part of a significant investment by Irish Water to upgrade the water network in Monaghan and we would like to thank customers in advance for their cooperation and patience while we complete this essential job.”

Customers can phone Irish Water on 1800 278 278 if they have any questions about the project or check out the Water Supply Updates section of the Irish Water website for regular updates.

The National Leakage Reduction Programme helps provide a more reliable water supply to Irish communities by reducing high levels of leakage and improving water quality. Its delivery represents an investment of over €500 million between 2017 and the end of 2021 to reduce leakage and replace old pipes on the water network.

Irish Water continues to work at this time with our Local Authority partners, contractors and others to safeguard the health and well-being of both staff and the public and to ensure the continuity of critical drinking water and wastewater services. Irish Water would like to remind people to follow the current HSE COVID-19 advice and ensure frequent handwashing.

Do Not Consume Notice issued for all customers supplied by the Newbliss Public Water Supply Scheme

Tuesday, 27 July 2021 – Following consultation with the Health Service Executive (HSE) Irish Water, working in partnership with Monaghan County Council, has issued a Do Not Consume Notice for all consumers on the Newbliss Public Water Supply Scheme due to elevated levels of iron and manganese. The notice applies to over 400 customers supplied by the Newbliss Public Water Supply Scheme.

It is especially important that mains drinking water is not given to bottle fed infants.

Please note this is not a Boil Water Notice. Boiling the water will not reduce manganese and iron levels and is therefore not a suitable measure to make the water safe to consume. This notice does not apply to other areas and water schemes in Monaghan.

Tankered water will be in place on Main Street, Newbliss to provide an alternative water supply to customers. Customers are reminded to use their own containers when taking water from the tanker and to boil water before consumption as a precautionary measure.

Irish Water drinking water compliance and operational experts are working with colleagues in Monaghan County Council to resolve this situation as soon as possible.

Speaking about the imposition of the notice, Peter Gallagher, Regional Operations Lead with Irish Water said “Irish Water is aware of the impact a Do Not Consume Notice is having on the community of Newbliss and would like to reassure impacted customers that Irish Water’s drinking water compliance and operational experts are working hard to lift the notice as quickly and as safely as possible. We would ask customers who have concerns to contact our customer care team on 1800 278 278.”

This water should not be used for

  • Drinking
  • Drinks made with water
  • Food preparation, washing or cooking of food,
  • Brushing of teeth
  • Making of ice
  • Children under 12 months old should not drink this water
  • In particular, children under 12 months old should not drink this water. This water should not be used for making up infant formula for bottled fed infants. An alternative source of water should be used. Bottled water can also be used to make up infant formula. All bottled water, with the exception of natural mineral water, is regulated to the same standard as drinking water. It is best not to use bottled water labelled as ‘Natural Mineral Water’ as it can have high levels of sodium (salt) and other minerals, although it rarely does. ‘Natural Mineral Water’ can be used if no other water is available, for as short a time as possible, as it is important to keep babies hydrated.
  • If bottled water is used to make up infant formula it should be boiled once (rolling boil for 1 minute), and cooled in the normal way
  • Ready-to-use formula that does not need added water can also be used.
  • Domestic water filters will not render water safe to drink
  • Caution should be taken when bathing infants to ensure that they do not swallow the bathing water
  • Discard ice cubes in fridges and freezers and filtered water in fridges

What can you use water for?

The water can be used for personal hygiene, bathing, flushing toilets, laundry and washing of utensils
Irish Water and Monaghan County Council will continue to liaise with the Health Service Executive with a view to lifting this drinking water restriction as soon as practicable.

Updates will be available on our Water Supply Updates section, on Twitter @IWCare and via our customer care helpline, open 24/7 on 1800 278 278.


A joint message from the Department of Public Health HSE North East, Cavan County Council and Monaghan County Council

26th July, 2021: The Department of Public Health North East, Cavan County Council and Monaghan County Council are appealing to the people to continue to follow public health advice due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Cavan and Monaghan in recent weeks.

Activities contributing to the increase in COVID-19 cases in the community include; indoor and outdoor social gatherings, family celebrations and house parties.

Dr Augustine Pereira, Director of Public Health North East, said: “The Department of Public Health North East has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases in Cavan and Monaghan. In the most recent week (wk29), we’ve seen a doubling of the number of cases in Monaghan. The majority of new cases in recent weeks have been in the unvaccinated age group. We ask if you are not yet vaccinated, to please continue to manage your contacts, meet outdoors, avoid crowded settings and not to socialise indoors as you await your vaccine. The 15-24 year age group accounted for over 30% of COVID-19 cases in Cavan and Monaghan last week. This is why we are urging everyone to be extra vigilant, act responsibly, and adhere to public health guidelines.”

“The high incidence rates we are seeing in the North East reflects how serious the situation can become in a matter of days and weeks. We have not seen this level of infection since early February, which is a worrying trend and shows that this virus is prevalent in our communities.

“All of our collective hard work has contributed to the success of our vaccination programme and the progress we have made so far with reopening our economy and society.”

Dr Pereira added: “Please help us prevent the situation getting worse by following all public health advice now, in particular to avoid crowds, limit contacts, avoid meeting up indoors, wear a mask, wash hands frequently and work from home where possible. Above all, do not organise a house party.”

“If you experience symptoms of COVID-19, please isolate and seek a free PCR test as soon as possible. Common COVID-19 symptoms of the Delta variant that is the circulating strain now also include a sore throat, runny nose or headaches. It is important at this point, for people with mild symptoms to also seek a free test.”

Cavan County Council Chief Executive, Tommy Ryan, said: “The people of Cavan have done tremendous work in keeping case numbers low in the county in recent months, but the increased transmissibility of the Delta variant means we cannot afford to be complacent. I would ask everyone in the county to continue to practice social distancing and take all precautions to slow the spread of this disease while the vaccination programme continues.

“By working together, we can once again bring our case numbers down and prevent a further spike in infections. As recent statistics have shown that most new cases are among those who are unvaccinated, I would appeal to our young people to take particular care to avoid large crowds and to limit their contacts. I would also encourage anyone who is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine but has not yet registered for vaccination to do so as soon as possible. Adherence to public health advice, in tandem with the vaccination programme, will help us through this pandemic and lead us to brighter days ahead.”

Eamonn O’Sullivan, Chief Executive of Monaghan County Council is encouraging the people of Monaghan to follow all public health advice and stay safe.

“We are currently experiencing a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. I would urge everyone eligible to apply and avail of the COVID-19 vaccine. Now is the time that we must work together to ensure that this virus does not take hold again. As the country begins to open up, please ensure that you follow public health advice and stay safe, if we work together we will reduce the spread of this virus.”

Forest Fire Danger Rating

Following publication of Fire Danger Notice – Condition Orange effective from 15.00hrs 16.07.2021 – 12.00hrs 23.07.2021 and continuing dry weather pattern, it is now advised that controlled burning is prohibited within County Monaghan for the effective period.


Fire Danger Notice 06 of 2021
Issue date:  16 July 2021 @ 1500hrs
Forest Fire
Danger Rating 

Condition Orange – High Fire Risk

Warning Effective From  1500hrs 16/07/2021
Effective Period Expires 1200hrs 23/07/2021

Arising from current dry weather patterns and high temperatures a high fire risk is deemed to exist in all areas where hazardous fuels such as dead grasses and shrub fuels such as heather and gorse exist. This risk phase is expected to peak on Friday, July 23rd, 2021.

Higher visitor activity levels at recreational sites can be expected in line with fine weather and summer holiday usage patterns.  Members of the public intending to visit forests and other recreational sites are reminded to adhere to regulations introduced to limit the spread of Covid-19. Vehicles must not be parked at site entrances or impede emergency service access to forest roads. Forest visitors should not use barbeques or open fires at any stage.

Fire behaviour and spread rates are likely to be moderated by high live fuel moisture levels in vegetation, and low expected wind speeds during the lifespan of this notice.

Fire Weather Data Courtesy of European Commission Copernicus System, European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting and Met éireann.

Pending significant rainfall, this risk condition will remain in place until 1200hrs on Friday, July 23rd, 2021 unless otherwise stated by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

Advice to Forest Owners and Managers

All forest owners and managers are again advised to prepare for likely outbreaks of fire. Fire lines, Fire Plans, fire suppression equipment should be reviewed and made ready and other relevant contingencies such as insurance, helicopter contracts etc., checked and confirmed.

The need for increased vigilance at this time cannot be overstated. Forest owners, farmers, rural dwellers and other countryside users are asked to be extremely vigilant regarding fire activity, to report any suspicious or illegal activity to the Gardai and to report all fires immediately to the Fire and Emergency Services via 112/999.

The Department recommends that forest owners and managers should consider the fire mitigation measures that they can put in place to help prevent loss or damage to forest resources through fire. Examples of such measures are:

  1. Risk assessment:

Assess your property with regard to fire risk and mitigation factors. Is there a risk of fire or presence of hazardous fuel vegetation on neighbouring lands? Is there a history of land burning in the vicinity of your forest? Are access routes adequate, accessible and clear of obstructions?  Is there a firebreak in place and has it been adequately maintained?

  1. Prepare:

Fire Plans should be developed for all forests, including a map showing access routes and assembly points for fire fighting personnel and equipment and potential sources of water. The plan should also include contact details for the emergency services, local private and Coillte foresters, neighbouring landowners and forest owners in order to summon help should the need arise.

Have fire-fighting tools such as beaters and knapsack sprayers to hand and ready to use. If you do not live in reasonable proximity to your woodland, a local caretaker or forest neighbour should be employed and should also have a copy of the fire plan with your and all the above contact numbers.

Clear tracks and roads if available and ensure forest entrances and access routes are not blocked by parked vehicles or other obstacles, especially where visitors or recreational users may be present. Suitable signage to this effect should be displayed on gates or barriers.

Firebreaks should be created (if not already in place) by screefing or removing vegetation mechanically by excavator so that the soil is bare.  Fire breaks should be at least 6 metres wide and should be maintained clear of flammable vegetation.

  1. Be Vigilant:

Forest owners should be particularly vigilant during the high risk period.  Fire patrols may be warranted in known fire hotspots.  Be particularly vigilant at Bank Holiday weekends where high risk weather is forecast. Cooperation between neighbouring landowners is critical to successful fire prevention. Forest owners should discuss their concerns about fire with neighbouring landowners in advance of the fire season. Providing assistance to farmers wishing to carry out legal prescribed burning earlier in the season is a useful way of developing good working relationships with neighbours, as well as ensuring that operations are conducted safely during lower risk conditions. Forest owners should cooperate with fire planning and share the burden of fire patrols and vigilance during high risk periods.

  1. Obey the Law:

It is an offence to cut, grub, burn or otherwise destroy any vegetation growing on any land not then cultivated between 1st March and 31st August in any year. Report all suspicious or illegal activity to Gardai immediately. Landowners wishing to carry out legally permitted prescribed burning must notify in writing all forest owners within one mile of the wood, and the local Garda station, between 7 and 35 days in advance of the burning operation. All burning operations should be notified to the Fire Service, via the control centre by telephoning 112/999 BEFORE burning commences. Landowners found burning illegally could face fines, imprisonment and Single Farm Payment penalties, where applicable.

  1. Report Fires Immediately:

If you see a fire, do not delay; report it to the Fire and Emergency Services straight away. Do not wait for somebody else to make the call. Dial 999 or 112. You will not be billed by the fire service or local authority for making the call. Give clear details as regards location, where at all possible using a national grid reference and any other useful information such as the size of the fire, wind direction, proximity to dwellings or forestry etc. Do not attempt to tackle fires alone or without adequate training or protective equipment.

  1. Report Losses:

If your forest is damaged or destroyed, report this loss as soon as possible to your local Gardai station and to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Johnstown Castle Estate, Co. Wexford.

Advice to the General Public/Forest Visitors

Members of the public and visitors to recreational areas should cooperate with all requests regarding fire safety, obey all relevant bye-laws and be considerate in parking vehicles so as not to impede access by emergency vehicles.

Where fire outbreaks occur at or near recreational areas the following actions should be taken by visitors in the interests of safety.

  1. Do not light fires in and around forests or open land.
  2. Do not attempt to intervene or fight fires under any circumstances.
  3. Gather all family/group members and move to a safe fuel-free location such as a car park, upwind of the fire.
  4. Telephone Fire and Rescue Services via 112 and report the fire and its location.
  5. Evacuate if instructed to do so, and cooperate with all Emergency Service Instructions.
