Pic: Here is what your Irish Water bill will look like
On a momentous day for Irish Water, the first bills have arrived in households
Today, or over the next few days, the first 39,000 Irish Water will begin to arrive on people's homes.
The first batch of quarterly bills will be followed by over a million more over the next eight weeks and the reaction to their arrival is being anticipated by Irish Water.
They have 750 staff on standby at their customer service centre to answer questions from those who recieve a bill this week and with the company acknowledging that they have already made mistakes in obtaining customer details, there may be a large number of incorrect bills issued.
