Irish Water says a precautionary boil water notice for 10,000 homes in Cork will remain in place for the coming days.
The alert was issued last night due to the quality of water coming into the plant at Midleton.

The boil notice is in place for the Whitegate Regional Water Supply in the east of the county.
People there are advised to boil water for drinking, food preparation, brushing their teeth and making ice.
3/3 #IWCork: The Boil Water Notice is in place until further notice. We will inform customers as soon as we have any more info. Thanks— Irish Water Care (@IWCare) January 1, 2016
