Cllr Gallagher said today: “Donegal County Council has continuously asked for a meeting between the representatives of the people of Donegal and Irish Water in order to discuss numerous issues regarding water Infrastructure and charges being imposed on the people of this county.
“Irish Water has refused to meet the council. This is beyond contempt considering the priceless piece of infrastructure that was handed over to them by the government – the biggest case of daylight robbery of the people of this county.”
“Irish Water has instead organised eight regional meetings which include numerous councils meeting together in a centralised location. I would estimate that these regional meetings could cost tens of thousands of euro, and again it will be the people who will pay for this. This is a scandalous situation, and another example of how out of touch this monstrous quango is with the people.”
