Irish Water won't attend council meetings
Irish Water has refused to attend local council meetings despite receiving a constant stream of queries from councillors around the country, writes Joyce Fegan.
A letter from Irish Water's managing director John Tierney which has been passed to local councils, states that attending all meetings would be "problematic".
"As a national organisation it would be hugely problematic for us to be available to attend 31 local council meetings on a regular basis," read the letter from Mr Tierney.
He added: "It is also not the norm for other similar national organisations."
