Irish Water/RTE and numbers



By Anthony Sheridan

This from Sinn Fein MEP Lynn Boylan on how much Irish Water has paid RTE in advertising costs.

Today I received confirmation through a Freedom of Information request to Irish Water how much the utility has spent on advertisement costs with the national broadcaster, RTÉ.

The figures released to me showed that the net cost of advertisement with RTE excluding VAT was €717,286 from the period of 2013-2015.

I wonder is there any correlation between this massive number and the tiny numbers of water protesters regularly reported by RTE News – just asking.
