I’ve been listening to the water charges row with a certain sense of distance, and that’s not a metaphor.

I live in a rural area and therefore won’t be a “customer” of Irish Water.

Like most rural dwellers too far from town, we have a private well and “waste water treatment system” that deals with our poo. I have to admit when the form arrived from Irish Water it felt like I’d won €500 in the Lotto.
