Irish Water fiasco goes on with deluge of bills
Only Irish Water could have come up with it - "a dry run" to deluge the country with 39,000 bills.
Given the history of the company to date, what could possibly go wrong? Whatever about leaky pipes, the utility is not taking any chances with payment, and so 750 people are on standby at a call centre in Cork, on the off-chance there might be a few queries.
The company has described the billing process as a significant task, and has also said it expects there will be errors in its database.
