Remedial works are taking place on the Ballycastle water scheme, where a boil water notice is currently in place following the detection of cryptosporidium in the water supply last month.

Irish Water has confirmed to local FG Councillor Jarlath Munnelly that the remedial works are nearing completion, and it's hoped the boil water notice could be lifted following the next review meeting with the HSE on the 4th December.

Councillor Munnelly says this would be welcomed by Ballycastle residents who currently have to boil water before use.

He says Irish Water also has longer-term plans to improve water quality in the area, by connecting Ballycastle to the Ballina Regional Supply, which provides water for most of North East Mayo.
