Mid-Kerry man no longer a director of Irish Water

A mid-Kerry man who was appointed to the board of Irish Water in 2013 is no longer a director of the company. Irish Water Coleman Sheehy from Milltown wasn’t among the appointments to the newly constituted board which governs Irish Water and another subsidiary, Gas Networks Ireland. Coleman Sheehy was appointed a director of Irish Water in November 2013 by the then Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan. Mr Sheehy who was described as being involved in property investment and development, was entitled to €15,000 in fees annually as a director of the utility. His profile referred to his involvement in property investment and real estate in Ireland, the UK, and in Central and Eastern Europe. Irish Water has confirmed that Mr Sheehy is now no longer a member of its board of directors. The government has appointed a single board governing the Ervia Group and its two operating subsidiaries, Gas Networks Ireland and Irish Water. Coleman Sheehy is not among the membership of the newly constituted board.
