18th Jul 18 | News

Retail giant Aldi has been praised for their decision to pull the 10ft Paddling Pool from sale due to the nation's hosepipe ban that's currently in place. 

The ten foot paddling pools, with a capacity of around 4,000 litres, were due to go on sale this Thursday.

Their post on Twitter said:

“In light of the National Water Conservation Order introduced by Irish Water, we will not be placing our 10ft Paddling Pool Specialbuy on sale on Thursday 19th July as advertised.”

The decision was met with support and approval from people on Twitter who praised the supermarket for pulling the product.

Met Eireann have issued a weather warning as Ireland suffers from drought conditions following weeks of high temperatures. 

The recent stretch of dry hot weather provides a timely reminder of just how valuable Ireland’s water is. Although we experienced our first bit of rainfall in recent weeks over the last few days, weather experts have revealed they are worried about Irish weather patterns as there is still no sign of any major rainfall on the way.
