Limerick City and County Council is investigating reports of possible issues with a private water supply at Croagh Kilfinny GAA

A number of camogie players from the senior teams of Limerick and Wexford along with the junior teams of Limerick and Kerry subsequently began to feel ill after they were playing matches at Croagh Kilfinny GAA Grounds on Saturday 29 June 2019 as part of a Liberty Insurance All Ireland Camogie Series double-header.

Limerick City and County Council was this afternoon alerted that there may be issues with the private water supply at the GAA grounds.

Limerick City and County Council has taken samples of water from the two bore holes in Croagh Kilfinny GAA grounds and sent them for testing, the results of which are due in the coming days.

The Council has also been liaising with the HSE Environmental Health Unit and Irish Water.

As the water source in Croagh Kilfinny GAA is a private supply and restricted to the grounds, there are no wider implications for the general public.

Croagh Kilfinny GAA has put notices on the outside taps on its grounds that the water is currently not fit for consumption.
