It's important to note that all water in Ireland is already paid for through general taxes. Individual household charges would be forcing residents to pay again for something they've already paid for once. It's a scam. The big owner of the company, Denis O'Brien, also owns many of the big media outlets in the country. This is all about profit and appeasing certain elements of the EU who have an interest in austerity measures - in short, it's about control.

Do not be fooled. Do not give up. Do not pay.
 
This is why we fight against #irishwater .

Come April, municipal utilities start cracking down on businesses and homes with late water bills by shutting off their taps. Is it ethical?

The votes have been counted and marriage equality is now the law of the land in Ireland. After historically high voter turnout, Irish voters approved a nation-wide referendum that added the following language to the constitution: "marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex."

There is a grass roots campaign to get an Educate Together secondary school to serve the city centre. At this time there isn't a multi-denominational, mixed gender school within the city to meet this need.

The campaign is looking to get 500 expression of interest forms completed by the end of June. So far they have about 150.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in an Educate Together secondary school for your child, please complete the following online form.
