You may recall previous reports detailing how Irish Water spent €16million on extending its lease – by 10 years – at its Colville House, Talbot Street, Dublin 1 headquarters just three days after the general election.
Further to this…
Irish Independent reports:
Jerry Grant has been appointed managing director of Irish Water. The former head of asset management in the utility, he replaces John Tierney who was the company’s first boss.
… Ervia group chief executive Michael McNicholas said Mr Grant brought 40 years of experience to the role.
You may recall how Mr Grant was managing director of RPS Consulting Engineering from 2002 until 2012 – before he joined Irish Water in 2013.
Mr Tireney was Dublin City Manager from 2006 to 2013.
RPS advised Dublin City Council on the Poolbeg incinerator project which has to date cost the State almost €100million with more than €30million going to RPS, even though the original contract was for €8.3million.
The EU found the contract between Dublin City Council and RPS did not conform with EU law.
