Irish Water has set up a website to make it easier for those who paid water charges to get refunds.
Users can visit www.water.ie/refunds to receive a refund of €200 and €325. Head of Irish Water Eamon Gallen said:
"Irish Water have been working in the background for several months to ensure that refunds will be ready to go as soon as we are authorised to do so by government. Our priority is to ensure that those who paid their household charges get their refund as quickly and efficiently as possible.
"This is why I would urge any customers who have not informed us of a change of address to do so now so that their details are up to date and there is no delay in issuing their cheque.”
