This afternoon.

At a meeting of the Joint Committee on the Future Funding of Domestic Water Services.

The committee discussed the matter of ‘public engagement and transparency’ with officials from the Commission for Energy Regulation, Irish Water, and the Public Water Forum.

It also held a vote on whether to hear from representatives of the Right2Water group.

It’s being reported that Fine Gael lost the vote 6-12 with the committee’s other members grouping together to ensure Right2Water representatives could speak next Tuesday.

The six Fine Gael TDs on the committee are: TDs Colm Brophy, Jim Daly, Alan Farrell, Martin Heydon, Kate O’Connell and Senator Paudie Coffey.

    Great! hopefully they will give people in favour of charges or rurals who have been paying for their upkeep of their wells speak time

    1. Truth in the News

      Group Water Schemes and Private Wells and indeed Domestic House Water Storage
      Tanks were grant aided by the Dept of Local Government later Dept of the Environment
      There is a lot to be discovered about the operation of certain Group Water Schemes
      in relation to financial transparency.

      Want to live outside of the zoned residential areas where services are mainlined?

      Go for it.

      Just pay for it yourself.

      Roooooorrrrrdle Ayyyyyyrrrrland, all the cabbage stinking, incestuous, small-minded grim and grey expanse of it, is paid for by Dubliners.

    I’d vote to not have to listen to Brendan Ogle pontificate and pump up his ego too. Whatever happened to all that money he collected for Home Sweet Home anyway?

      Yeah great, KFC. I’m beginning to believe that you reside here rather than New York (oooh de glamour). Real aroma of Fraperoom about you – and we’ve all seen it so don’t bother.

      1. No more mr nice guy

        That’s very nasty and unfair. Why shouldn’t Kieran retain an avid interest in affairs here?

          I’m very nasty and unfair? Have you read any comments here lately. Mr NYC being no mean exponent himself.

            No your personalised comments about Kieran are nasty and unfair. I’m sure you’re a total gentleman away from your keyboard :)
