Business owners and householders on Church Lane in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, thought they had received the local council's entire bill for its Christmas decorations in recent days.

Second-hand bookstore owner David Faughnan said he nearly fainted when he received a bill for €11,061.

Mr Faughnan, who owns Universal Books, said he has tried to contact Electric Ireland to get the matter sorted but still hasn't received a reply.

"I have contacted them three times but still haven't got it sorted," he said.

A spokesman for Electric Ireland said the matter was being investigated but advised people who had received large bills to contact them.
