Hikes on for lecky


UTILITY companies ESB and Airtricity are set to follow Bord Gias in hiking their charges, experts warned yesterday.
Bord Gais Energy confirmed this week its electricity customers would be hit with a 12 per cent price rise next month.

And Mr Moynihan, of comparison website Bonkers.ie, said more people would end up in arrears on utility bills because of the hikes.
