Electricity credit

Customers can expect to get an additional electricity credit before Christmas, Minister for the Environment Eamon Ryan has said.

In April, a €200 electricity credit was applied to each household as part of measures announced by the Government to help people grapple with the rising cost of living.


Speaking to reporters after the conclusion of Cabinet on Wednesday, Mr Ryan said that there would be another such support before the end of the year.

Reform of the European energy market and supports for people in Budget 2023 will also form part of the Government's response to the energy crisis, he said.

The 13-year-old, whose father is Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National-winning trainer Henry de Bromhead, died following a fall from a pony while riding at the Glenbeigh Festival in Co Kerry on Saturday.


His death has caused widespread shock among the racing community.
