It's just under a week since the notice was issued.
A boil water notice for a midlands town has been lifted.
After six days of being warned to boil their tap water, the residents of Birr can now resume normal use of the water supply for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

“Uisce Éireann wishes to thank everyone for their patience, co-operation, and assistance during this Boil Water Notice and we greatly regret any inconvenience caused to homes and businesses in the community.”
