Irish Water have confirmed that the hosepipe ban which was implemented in July has been officially lifted across the country.
In announcement made this afternoon the utility confirmed that the ban will no longer remain place, despite a previous decision to implement the ban until the end of September.
Irish Water say water levels have risen significantly following persistent rainfall over the last month.
The ban which came into effect following a long dry summer was reviewed on a monthly basis, however following recent checks the utility they say it is no longer needed.
The Water Conservation Order in effect from 1 September has now been lifted. Rainfall rates have returned or are returning to average rates for this time of year at all observational stations in the Southern, Eastern and Midlands regions. See https://t.co/5Cvoum0UhC for more.
