Sorry girls i just need to vent my anger.
thats weird, you would think after paying the connection fee they would move the fecking thing in the interest of safety on the site.
hopw they get the finger out and get it sorted for you.
I feel your pain! We're building as well! It's the small little niggly things that take the longest to sort out! Didn't really have much problems getting the esb out though! They called to the farmer though just to officially get his permission to go onto his land to put up some poles and he said no!!!!!!!!!! It's the same farmer that we bought the site off! 2 FBIL's are building beside us and we paid same farmer €140,000 each for the site and now is saying that no way is he letting them onto the land until the weather dries up!

sorry to be awkward bride-2b, but i can't actually say i blame him. i'm assuming that they need access to land beside your site, and not your site itself? well, at this time of year if trucks and machinery are driven onto wet ground (which it is because of all the rain lately) then the farmer will lose the grass, and if it's silage or crops that could work out expensive for him.
in fairness, he's not saying no full stop, just wait till it dries out. you paid for your site, not for access to his land.
That is so frustrating. We had hassle with them when we were building our house too and it nearly drove me mad. I think the most annoying part is that its virtually impossible to speak to the same person twice and nobody is accountable for anything, its always a case of "well I don't deal with that" rubbish. Could you ask your solicitor to contact them in writing to enquire why they're refusing to move the line? At least that way someone will have to answer and it will be on paper. I know it'll probably cost ye a few bob for the solicitor to send the letter, but its better than driving yourself up the wall waiting for them feckers to get their finger out.
maria1234 what is their reason for not moving the line?
