14 May Irish Water contractors remove meters from Cork estate; protests to continue
Irish Water contractors have removed five water meters from a Cork housing estate at the centre of a month-long water meter blockade.
Locals are claiming it is a major victory and have vowed to continue their protests..
Contractors moved in to Ashbrook Estate in Togher just after 9am with the agreement of residents to reinstate footpaths left unfinished by the water meter blockade.
As part of that work contractors removed five of six water meters originally installed.
