According to Irish Water, people who have failed to register with Irish Water before midnight, February 2, won’t be subject to penalties, though higher charges may be in store further down the line.
Irish Water’s Elizabeth Arnett said that anyone who doesn’t register will face a standard charge of €260, with the assumption they are part of a two adult household. The State body has also said that details may be confirmed or amended at any time.
Meanwhile, Dublin may be one of the more expensive cities in which to buy or rent accommodation, but at least it fares well in global rankings when it comes to buying a litre of milk.
The Irish Independent has carried out a grocery survey in five major cities around the world, including London, Paris and Sydney. A litre of own brand milk in Ireland’s capital will set you back 75c from Tesco or Dunnes Stores, with similar products in Paris costing €1.33.
