Irish Water is a ‘mess’ according to Laois TD and Sinn Féin’s spokesperson on the Environment, Brian Stanley TD,

He was speaking during a Dáil debate on Irish Water on a day when it was revealed that only a third of households have returned the forms posted to them, and that the Government has instructed the company to conduct a review of its communications.

“Every day it seems brings new revelations regarding the mess that is Irish Water. The understandable anger over the level of bonus payments is just the latest and will hardly encourage confidence in the company, despite the review into their communications announced this afternoon.

Earlier, a question from Deputy Stanley revealed that Irish water is receiving 70,000 calls a week. The Laois TD claimed that many of them were not being answered.

The TD said his party was committed to abolishing the charges.
