A boil water notice has been issued for a second time for people living in parts of counties Dublin, Kildare and Meath, with over 600,000 people affected.

The problem has resulted from very heavy rainfall which has washed large amounts of organic matter into reservoirs.

Irish Water said the areas impacted were the same in a previous boil water notice issued last month.

They have apologised for the impact and inconvenience caused by the issue, stating that public health is its number one concern.
