Water suppliers then face fresh concern that water reserves could dry up, meaning they'll then struggle to ensure each household is getting such an increased supply.

Fines and court appearances have been threatened for those who break the rules.

Irish Water is working with local authorities to do everything possible to conserve water availability, examining how we can make further inroads into leakage by mobilizing extra crews and seeking maximum public cooperation in saving water.

The areas affected include Lahinch, Lisdoonvarna, Doolin, Liscannor, Ballagh-Cahersherkin and surrounding Group Water Supply schemes.

The general public are still permitted to water their plants when necessary during a hosepipe ban by using a watering can. There 39 water supplies under night-time water restrictions and over 100 water supplies at risk due to high consumption.

He said: "The worry levels are going up as quickly as the thermometer levels and we're getting engaged with the most pressing problems in the most pressing locations. I hope that residents will also respond by cutting back on the amount of water that they use too".

Park beats Ryu in dramatic play-off for Women's PGA Championship
Going into the playoff, as is key, Park had the momentum and it showed, with her birdieing both playoff holes to take the win. A playoff was only needed after Park missed a birdie putt on the 18th, which would have given her the win on the final hole.

Irish Water has announced a nationwide hosepipe ban will come into effect from 8am on Friday and will remain in place until midnight on 31 July as a drought continues across the country.

Why has the ban been put in place? Fish ponds are also excluded from the ban. "This work becomes more challenging as the drought impacts spread nationally and the reserves of water fall across the country", added the spokesperson.

For watering your plants, and lawn, why not re-use the water you have already used to wash your fruit and vegetables or even to clean the dishes?

"Although peak temperatures may not be quite as high as we have seen this week, we will still see temperatures widely in the mid to high 20s".

"We have maximised our water production and need customers' help to reduce demand", NI Water chief executive Sara Venning said.

Irish Water has also appealed for the public to report leaks on the public water network and to fix private leaks in homes and businesses.
