It's not clear if or when repair works will be carried out on balconies at a number of apartments in Tallaght.

People living in Hunterswood in Ballycullen have been warned to stay off them as their wooden supports are rotting faster than first thought.

Landlords are being asked to urgently contact their tenants as the country basks in a heatwave.

According to The Irish Independent an email has been sent to some property owners in the Hunterswood estate in Ballycullen.

It's understood a number of wooden-based balconies are rotting and engineers have flagged the deterioration has progressed faster than initially thought.

Owners are being told to alert any tenants who might me more inclined to use their terraces during the warm spell.

The management company is due to meet to discuss an immediate plan of works, but has not responded to calls for comment from 98FM News.

It's reported work began at the start of the year to replace 21 of the balconies' timber supports with steel frames.

Local Fianna Fail councillor Charlie O'Connor says "this is a very sensitive story and those reports that people are being told 'don't step on your balcony, it's unsafe' must be really upsetting people."
