It is the position and view of the Dublin Sunday Weekly Rally campaigners, that the millions of our taxes spent on establishing Irish Water, should have been used to upgrade and modernise the entire water system, on the island of Ireland.

And it is then, and only then should we the sovereign citizens of Ireland have decided if we wanted water meters or not, and how we wanted to fund Irish Water into the future.

This we protest is what should have happened, and this we know is exactly what would have happened, if we had insisted on it, as a united sovereign nation.
