    Did you know that Irish Water is the only organisation in the country whose operatives and contractors are allowed to undertake street works (i.e pipe repair, meter installation) without local authority licence. ESB, Bord Gais, etc, nor their contractors have such rights.

    This effectively means that IW street works are only regulated by the IW contracts manager, hence all the awful traffic restricting, private property access blocking, ignorance that no other utility or contrcator would be allowed to get away with, aggrevating any citizen whose property or rights fall in their path

      This is so last January. You’ll get 10,000 people if you’re lucky though I’m sure they’ll inflate that figure.

        It takes a very special breed of corvid to be so dismissive of 10,000 citizens protesting on the streets. Poop hawk is the term, I believe.

          So you agree that the numbers protesting will be about 90% down on what the organisers estimated the first time. As I said this has become so last January. The momentum was lost by not having regular mass protest.

      Wow man. You’ve discovered the conspiracy!! That’s like a scandal!!
      Or just fupping maybe it’s because IW inherited its legal position from ummmm the local authorities and water infrastructure is distinctly different from power and gas.
      But ya! It’s a DOB conspiracy alright!
