Councillors found out today that the boil water notice affecting 7000 customers in Limerick may be in place until December.
In the first fifteen minutes of today’s Limerick City and County Council meeting, two councillors walked out in protest.
Councillor Adam Teskey and Councillor Emmet O’Brien wanted to discuss the boil water notice, which came into force last week.
The notice affects people in Askeaton, Foynes, Ballyhahill, Kildimo, Pallaskenry and surrounding areas.
Speaking to Live 95 just after they left the chamber, Cllr Teskey said the cryptosporidium in the water is a major health concern.
