Irish Water is poised to undergo a catharsis in its troubled existence.
The company is set to lose its top man, John Tierney, who will say cheerio to the spectre of public derision after nearly 40 years of service, no doubt collecting a tidy sum before leaving the building.
Irish Water itself is gearing up for its new phase of development, and the top brass is reportedly working on a “re-branding” of the company, in an effort to rid itself of its own wretched reputation.
The cost of such re-branding has not yet been revealed, but proposals will go before the Government in the near future.
The latest poll revealed that 60pc of the population abhor Irish Water and believe it should be removed from existence altogether.
