A boil notice on the public water supply in the Roundstone/Inis Nee area of Co Galway is effective from this evening.

Routine water testing revealed traces of e-coli and coliform, which are indicators of water pollution.

HSE environmental health officers have informed food premises in Roundstone village to boil water and information circulars are due to be issued in the area tomorrow.

This is the third boil notice in Galway in recent months, with Galway city and Clarinbridge previously affected.
