PIC: This size of this Irish Water bill almost caused a heart attack in Leitrim
Is this for the shop or the entire country?
The staff at Sherbet's clothes shop in Carrick-On-Shannon got a hell of a fright when they opened their first ever bill from Irish Water this week.
You know yourself, money is always a little bit tight in January so the last thing you want to see coming through the letterbox is a bill.
Well, particularly a bill of this size.
The bill for three months reads €267,498.49.
That's over quarter of a million euros for 90 days, you'd need every tap in the country turned on for three months to rack up a bill of that size.
A staff member told us, "It was obviously a complete mistake, but it gave us a mild heart attack and then a lot of laughter. We called Irish Water and they acknowledged the error."
