Irish Water email fiasco reveals only 30,000 customers registered

According to recent news on Irish water’s website a duplicate email was sent erroneously to all Irish Water online account holders. It was noted by Irish Water that the duplicate email was sent to approximately 300 customers. The alert notification then went on to mention that only 1% of customers were affected.


Using a high-tech mathematical process involving formulas and leaving-cert mathematics, experts have calculated that if 1% is equal to 300 customers, then 100% is equal to 30,000 customers.


We’re open to be corrected on our fancy calculations, but if Irish Water’s current data is to be used as the baseline, then somebody somewhere is reporting inaccurate claims of c. 1.2 million households having already signed up. The numbers simply don’t add up.
