The matters at issue in the correspondence are the responsibility of Cork County Council in relation to compliance with environmental legislation and of Irish Water in respect of connection to the public waste water network. I, as Minister, have no operational role in relation to either of these matters and cannot involve myself in individual cases.  

It may be helpful to note that Irish Water has established a dedicated team to deal with representations and queries from public representatives. The team can be contacted via email at

oireachtasmembers@water.ie or by telephone on a dedicated number, 1890 578 578.
