There's good news for the Ballycastle area of north Mayo, as the boil water alert has been lifted.

The boil water notice was put in place on the Ballycastle public water supply and local group water schemes on 12th October, following the detection of cryptosporiudium in the water supply.

Works have taken place by Irish Water and Mayo County Council to resolve the situation, and following further testing and sampling, no further detections of cryptosporidium were found and there were no reported cases of illness in the community.

The HSE and Irish Water met earlier today, and have confirmed that the boil water notice has been lifted with immediate effect - however, Irish Water warns there is a risk of further cryptosporiudium in the supply until Ballycastle is connected to the Ballina-Lisglennon public water supply - works on this connection are at a preliminary stage and are expected to be completed by late next year.
