Glenboy/Glenfarne Group Water Scheme

REMINDER: Payment of Annual Water Maintenance Charge Now Due. By the Friday, 31st May, the Committee who run the Scheme (voluntarily) hope to have completed the collection of this year’s charge of €150. The number of payments collected to-date are ahead of expectations and the Committee are confident the vast majority of its members (nearly 400) will have paid by the end of the month.

If you are connected to the Scheme and have still to pay, there are two methods available: (1) Lodge €150 directly to the G/G Group Water Scheme, Ulster Bank, Manorhamilton: Sort Code: 986090; Account No. 16702046. Some members making payment from UK also sought the IBAN: IE03ULSB98609016702046 and Swift BIC: ULSBIE2D. If possible, quote your Water Ref. No. and request a receipt from the Bank. Otherwise, email the Secretary, Glenboy/Glenfarne Group Water Scheme (address below) and request confirmation of your payment. (2) By cheque or postal order (for €150) made out to G/G Group Water Scheme and send to Mr. Frank Somers, Treasurer, Group Water Scheme, Briscloonagh, Glenfarne, Co. Leitrim again quote your Water Ref. No.

To ensure the smooth and efficient running of the Scheme, please make your payment before the end of May. Posting costly reminder letters and calling house-to-house to request overdue payments are actions the Committee can ill afford and hope to keep to an absolute minimum this year.

Finally, some members may still have not received notifications of charges; the most likely reason being change of ownership/title/tenancy of some properties connected to the Scheme, if this is the case or if you need to contact the Secretary (Jimmy McMorrow) for any reason, email: glenboy.glenfarne.waterscheme@gmail.com or tel. 083 1131169.
