Welcome to Crossakiel

Clonmellon Community Radio

Apparently 82% of the population have voted to ban the water meters however this seems to be falling on deaf ears when it comes to our elected representatives who seemIrish Water Meters to be detached from what the people want.  This is not representative democracy which is what we are supposed to have, it is a dictatorship. With more and more taxes being put on people who are already finding it hard to pay existing taxes, local communites are beginning to fight back!  Well done to the communities in Dublin and Cork who have come together to fight the installation of these water meters.  There are people who will say that we have to pay for water meters, but we are already paying for water through the existing tax system. 

All of these charges are simply additional taxation to pay off the unlawful odious debt to private bankers.  Also, water is a neccessity for life, so they cannot cut off your water but they will reduce the water pressure so your water tanks will not fill up and you will not be able to have showers or baths etc  For some people who are determined not to pay, they are having water pumps installed in their homes right at the water main to compensate for the lack of pressure.  

What is the situation with the Cairns Estate?  Well the company who built the Cairns (Loughcourt Ltd) have ceased trading (although they are still advertising the vacant houses), we are not sure how that works? So, the builder has around 12 years to hand over the estate to the local council but the residents of the estate can reduce this to 10 years if enough people request it. People started to move into the Cairns in late 2005/early 2006, so based on a 10 year period, the builder should be handing over the estate to the council in 2015/2016 if requested by the people (we believe that the Cairns estate at present is private property and should not have meters installed until it is handed over to the council).  The council will not release the builders bond until they are happy with the estate, so does this mean that the builder will come back and finish the roads, paths etc to claim their bond?

Our understanding is this - should Irish Water or the relevant company turn up to install meters in the Cairns estate, in the eyes of the law, this could be deemed illegal as they will be trespassing on private property without the consent of the people.  They might use the implied right argument which means we need to write a letter to the installation company revoking their right of access to the Cairns.  We have also been told that the land registry will show that the boundary of your land extends passed your gate and out to the road, which means that they would be coming on to your property without your permission, but this has not been confirmed.  If anyone knows more about this, please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.

The only way that we can stop this, or any tax (like the property tax) is by people power.  The local community needs to work together to stop the ever increasing taxes being put on us to pay off the bankers dept. If people think that this money is being raised to fill pot holes in the road, we recommend that you do your own research on the 2008 bailout. There is going to be more taxes coming down the line so when do we say "enough is enough"There is a solution to this problem but it needs the community to come together to make a change otherwise we will see more suicides and evictions in the coming months and years.  We cannot rely on the politicans, we must do this ourselves!

If you are interested in discussing this further, please email us on This email address is being protected from spambots.
