Again?! A government deal will lead to new water meters being installed


Irish water has been a hot topic in Irish society for some time now.

And a new deal between the government and the Irish Water Committee will reportedly see more than 300,000 new water meters being installed throughout Ireland.

According to the Irish Sun, Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are expected to sign off on the deal next week.

The new plans will see meters being installed into apartments across the country.

An insider told the publication: "There will only be bulk metering of apartments, that will generate 300,000 extra meters.

"If that occurs, Ireland will have more meters per head of population than the UK.

"If that doesn't keep Europe happy we don't know what will."

The Fianna Fáil spokesman on Housing, Planning and Local Government, Barry Cowen, recently said of the water issues:  "The bottom line is that the current water charging regime is defunct."

We'll have to wait and see how this plays out.
