An Taoiseach Enda Kenny confirmed today that his cabinet has failed to sign off on plans for water charges, at its meeting held earlier this morning.
Speaking today during Leader’s Questions, the Taoiseach appeared to confirm that households would pay at least €240.00 on average per year for the next two years. However he also confirmed that the Government had not signed off on agreed figures.
Mr Kenny also admitted that this new charge would be difficult for households to accept, but stressed that the need for a new entity that can provide new water infrastructure was imperative, with up to 40% of the water in Dublin city currently leaking into the ground.
He said that on the advice received from the Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan, the maximum subvention allowed cannot exceed €537m and this equates to an average bill of €240 per household per year. No information was made available on the implications of water charges for families, specifically in relation to metering and each citizens ability to pay. A free allowance is expected to be available to all households, but the extent of same remains also not yet clear.
Unconfirmed reports state that an added standing charge of less than €50 per annum is also being proposed and it is also understood that households that have not been metered when these water charges come into effect in the autumn, will now be accessed on the basis of the number of persons living in each household.
Homeowners will be charged for using water from October 2014, but will not have to pay until January next year.

Thurles Father & Son greet President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina in Stratford-upon-Avon
On a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon, during their recent State visit to England, President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina did a spontaneous walk about and met up with Cormac Molumby and his father Gerry. Noting his Tipperary Jersey, the President asked Cormac, jesting; “Are Tipperary, still playing hurling there?” to which Cormac very quickly replied in the affirmative “Yes Sir”.
Although presently living in England, sports mad Cormac, latter a student apprentice, remains an avid Thurles Sarsfields and Tipperary fan, following their exploits constantly on line for sporting results. He is also the follower of a thriving hurling club in Warwickshire , London, attending matches at Ruislip and rarely misses matches in Semple Stadium, Thurles, and Croke Park, Dublin when back home visiting in Thurles. He supports Watford in soccer and Ireland in the Rugby and his hero is Hull City and Republic of Ireland striker Shane Long.
Cormac is son of Thurles native Gerry Molumby, (Right above) who was covering the Presidents event for the Nottingham Post and the Irish Press in the UK. Gerry also has organised St Patrick’s Day events in Nottingham now for more than a decade. Cormac’s Mother is London born, but of Irish parents; latter who hailed from Bandon (Her Dad) and Cork city (Her Mom). Gerry met Fiona first in London and as he says himself “The rest is history.”
