We have had water supplied through our taps for many years, paid for, in my lifetime, first by rates and then through national exchequer funding. Now, with a consultancy cost of €80m, it becomes Uisce Éireann and we are going to have to pay water rates.
We used to have telephones supplied through the Department of Post agus Telegraphs, then it became Telecom, then Eircom. Now, with a consultancy cost of €16m, it becomes Eir.
Our postal service, having been quite successful as the Department of Post agus Telegraphs,
became An Post and, at some point their livery had ‘Superpostman’ added — at what design cost?
Bus Éireann used to be CIE. Now at what cost has their livery been changed? Personally, I find the new Expressway coaches look most
intimidating. Has any of this improved services?
