Rathkeale Gets Do Not Drink Notice From Irish Water

After taking advise from the HSE and Limerick County Council, Irish Water has issued a precautionary notice advising residents of Rathkeale not to drink water from the public water supply until further notice.

According to RTE news, the notice affects an estimated 2,500 customers in Rathkeale town and the Kilcolman area.
