Lead levels in some water samples across the country are 15 times over the legal limit.

Irish Water figures obtained by the Irish Times show that a sample near Sutton Dart Station in Dublin was found to be the most contaminated by lead.

There were also unsafe levels in Kilkeedy in Clare last year, with a sample last year found to be 10 times over the legal limit for safe consumption.

Unsafe levels were also identified in Kilmacthomas in Co Waterford, Gorey in Wexford and Screggan in Offaly.
