Re: Electricity prices to rise by more than 5% in June

Happy with my bill up to 2nd June - however it was up by just over €5 compared to last year and I had only used 1 unit more. Appreciate this doesn't include the recent announcement, but so long as I keep within my budgeted amount I'm not really bothered.

MEU3 is valid (have to be resident for 5+ years). My comment refers only to a certain group of British Expats who have not updated their immigra...

Re: Flat Roof Coating

The flat roofs on our complex apartment desperately need to be treated, especially after last winter's prolonged rainfall with ingress of water to some of the top floor apartments. Quotes of work offered and prices vary from a less than €1000 to €14,000+. No wonder the owners are reluctant to contri...

Pharmacist told me that when a doctor writes a prescription it will be sent to him via the GESY information system and he can...
