“Irish Water must reverse their refusal to invest in a pipe replacement programme for South Inishowen”: Mac Lochlainn requests crunch meeting

Posted on: Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Donegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has called on the regional management of Irish Water to meet with Donegal’s public representatives at the earliest opportunity about the on-going serious disruptions to the water supply across the South Inishowen area.

He has also stated that Irish Water “must review and indeed, reverse their refusal to invest in a pipe replacement programme on the South Inishowen supply network, particularly considering Irish Water’s plans to extend the Eddie Fullerton water supply beyond the Inishowen area and on to Letterkenny”.

Senator Mac Lochlainn’s Letter to Irish Water

For the attention of the regional management of Irish Water, 

I am requesting that the regional management of Irish Water meet with the Donegal Oireachtas members and Donegal County Councillors from the Inishowen and Letterkenny Municipal Districts at the earliest opportunity to discuss the ongoing bursts to the water mains from the Eddie Fullerton Dam supply, serving the South Inishowen area of Co. Donegal. 

In recent days, yet again, a huge number of homes, businesses and public services were affected across a wide area of South Inishowen.

These serious disruptions are a regular occurrence over recent years and Irish Water must review and indeed, reverse their refusal to invest in a pipe replacement programme on this supply network, particularly considering Irish Water’s plans to extend the Eddie Fullerton water supply beyond the Inishowen area and on to Letterkenny.

I trust that you will facilitate this request as a matter of urgency. 

Regards, 

Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn
