The affected areas are...

- Collins Lane North
- Carraig Cluin
- Clara Road
- Shrah
- Tully
- Tully North
- Burlington Business Park
- Axis Business Park. 

Speaking about these works, Joe Carroll, Irish Water’s Regional Lead, commented;

"These works are vital to ensure a more secure water supply to homes and businesses in Tullamore and are part of a significant investment by Irish Water to safeguard the water supply. We understand this type of work can be inconvenient and we will ensure our work crews make every effort to minimise any disruption these works may cause."
