Water schemes are under increased pressure nationwide as the country battles with temperatures in the low thirties.

Temperatures topped 30C in parts of the country yesterday – and are expected to rise again today.

Drought conditions are threatening many parts of the country and around 10,000 customers are affected by water restrictions, with around 7,000 of them in Kilkenny.

Donegal, Galway, Limerick and Mullingar have been identified as areas most at high risk, while Longford, Laois and Westmeath are also affected by restrictions.
