Mayo hoteliers slam proposed hikes in energy bills

Fri, Nov 14, 2008

Requests by the ESB and Bord Gáis to raise energy charges from January 1 have been condemned by Mayo hoteliers as outrageous and blatantly insulting to Irish industry in its present economic state. The Mayo Branch of the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) states that seeking increases at a time of economic crisis is out of step with the reality of Ireland’s worsening economic conditions and that no increases will be acceptable to the IHF and its 1,000 members throughout the country who are seriously struggling to survive. The federation states that the government needs to intervene urgently to stop any electricity or gas price increases and show clear leadership to support Irish industry in dealing with its current serious challenges.

However, there has been a striking increase in the number of Irish women entrepreneurs. A recent Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) report showed that last year the figure for women running businesses had increased to 5.9 per cent from 4.2 per cent in 2006. GEM said this percentage was much higher than the average in the EU and OECD countries.
