Water - protests

Joan Burton the Tánaiste

This would not have happened if she stuck to her labour principles instead of being two faced! 

If anybody needs to be arrested it is herself because she caused the trouble in the first place!

An opposition TD Paul Murphy , who participated in the demonstration, said the protest, which began shortly before Ms Burton attended the ceremony at noon, had been peaceful. 
“The protest has been peaceful. Yes she has been delayed here for a number of hours but I think this protest has sent a very clear message to her, a message which the Tánaiste has ignored to date, that that people don’t want to pay these water charges. 

“There is national anger over the changes but particularly in Tallaght and Jobstown in west Dublin...there are a lot of people who simply can’t afford to pay,” he said, adding the protesters were also sending a message to Irish Water that the people of Tallaght would not accept water charges.


  1. It is disgraceful that we have to pay for water and especially to privatised companies. No one should make a profit from such a vital resource. Our bills go up and up each year and I am now paying over £60 per month. Many people cannot afford this and although they cannot have their water cut off, they can end up in court with unpaid debts. I hope that Irish Water get the message and back down on their proposals and you don't end up paying over the odds like we do here.

    1. Thank you for the information Fran, I am not personally effected as we have our own well and sceptic tank are not liable for any charges.
      I do though have empathy and support those folk who will have to pay.

  2. The time is nigh to change the political status quo!

    1. It certainly is because the present lot appear to enemies of the people.
