Irish Water has confirmed that contractors attempting to install meters at an estate in Cork yesterday had to stop work after a stand-off with protestors.

Gardaí were called to the Ashbrook estate in Togher when residents and protestors from a local group objected to the installation of meters in the area.
-
In a statement, Irish Water said contractors at the site halted metering work for a short period of time in order to maintain the safety of the staff, the public and the site of work.

Gardaí visited the site after exchanges between protestors and Irish Water staff, who left the estate yesterday afternoon.

It is expected the contractors will return the site to complete the metering.
-
Irish Water said it respects the right to protest and endeavours to facilitate this right in so far as is reasonably possible.
