Soldiers deployed from Dundalk to help Drogheda Water Crisis

The Defence Forces have been called to help as the water crisis in Louth rages on.

Soldiers have already been deployed from Athlone to the tankers dotted around Louth/Meath, with more from Dublin and Dundalk set to follow.

Following requests, the  tropps  will provide two 10,000 litre water bowsers and four 1,000lt water bowsers to Irish Water.

Once filled they will be sent to designated locations in Drogheda.

21 personnel, including five drivers, from the 27 infantry Battallion will maintain the bowsers in co-ordination with Irish Water.
