Cork City mayor Chris O’Leary openly accepts the People’s Convention 22,000 signature petition to boycott Irish Water




The mayor of Cork City has openly accepted a petition reportedly containing 22,000 signatures calling for a boycott of Irish Water.

The petition which signals the intent from the people of Cork City was accepted by mayor and Sinn Féin TD Chris O’Leary, who told a delegation representing the People’s Convention that the signatures sent out a very strong message. Mr O’Leary also promised the delegation that he will try and give it to Taoiseach Enda Kenny in the Dáil sometime this week.

The petition has come after a lengthy battle by People’s Convention to get Cork City Council to accept it, the group have restlessly protested at meetings of the Council over the last number of months in order to get it accepted.
