Limerick march against water charges

Protesters from all over the Mid-West are expected to attend a major march against water charges in Limerick this Saturday, assembling at the City Hall at 2pm.

The protest will be addressed by Deputy Paul Murphy and will hear a new song from Urban Dreamers, the Limerick band from Bressie’s Teenage Kicks TV show. It has also received support from Rubberbanditts who retweeted the protest details today.​

With the first Irish Water bills arriving in Limerick this morning, the We Won’t Pay campaign have called for people to join their ‘Bin the Bills’ protest on Saturday, Councillor Cian Prendiville says they want a big turn out to “show the Government that we will not be bullied, and boost the confidence of those unsure whether to boycott or not”.

Around 39,000 water bills were delivered across the country this morning, with more due in the weeks ahead.
