While anxious not to apportion any blame for the recent contamination of water supply in Gorey, council officials have said it was incumbent on Irish Water (IW) to relay news of any potential issues to the public last month.

Speaking at the meeting of the Gorey Kilmuckridge Municipal District, Director of Services at Wexford County Council (WCC) Eamonn Hore said IW were notified there was a problem with the water on August 26 and from that point forth were in charge of communicating this news to the public.
