The Shannon-based Secretary of Active Retirement Ireland says pensioners are ‘despondent’ about rising energy prices.

SSE Airtricity is the latest company to announce an increase, with their average bill rising by a further nine percent from December.

The State pension and the fuel allowance payments were each raised by five euro in Budget 2022.


Kay Murphy, who’s PRO of Active Retirement’s Midwest region, says the increase has been negated by price rises.
