Irish Water’s Oliver Harney says he understands people will want to be outside and using water, but is appealing to the people of Kerry to be mindful how they use water at home.

 

Irish Water’s tips for conserving water include minimising the use of paddling pools, hoses and pressure washers, as well as reusing household water for the garden.
