Aodhan O’Donnell, Head of Transport at the Consumer Council said, “The collapse of the railway bridge near Malahide is an extraordinary situation and we are thankful that there were no injuries or deaths as a result. However, there is no doubt that it will cause severe disruption for passengers and commuters who rely on the Enterprise service to travel to and from Dublin.
Kathy Graham, Head of Water at the Consumer Council said, “The Consumer Council is aware that households in the Hilltown area were cut off from their water supply last week. Any interruption to water supply has a big impact on people’s daily lives and we understand the frustrations of those who were affected.
Consumer Council research finds air passengers can pay between £33 and £57 more than advertised fare.
The Consumer Council has welcomed a commitment from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to conduct a market study on the way goods and services are advertised and priced. The move follows the Consumer Council’s submission of an in depth report to the OFT on the impact of additional charges for consumers.
