Tourism Minister Leo Varadkar says he is concerned about the impact on tourism and business of the water shortage in Dublin.

The minister has also criticised the communications with the public by Dublin City Council.

Mr Varadkar said by and large the disruption has been limited.

"Obviously anything that affects business and tourism, I am concerned about," he said.

"I do think the City Council could have done a better job in terms of communications. We know the problem is in Ballymoreustace but we don't know exactly what the problem is," he said.
