Laois Sinn Féin TD Brian Stanley says the €5m spent by Irish Water to date on legal services should have been used to fix leaks.

Laois Sinn Féin TD Brian Stanley says the €5m spent by Irish Water to date on legal services should have been used to fix leaks.

“It must be added to the €85 million spent on consultants, the costs of a call centre which it is almost impossible to contact, and bonuses to executives. Surely the money frittered away might be better spent addressing leaks,” he said.
