A Cavan hotelier is preparing to pay over €1.5 million for electricity in 2023.

Businesses across Ireland have been experiencing major cost increases in electricity supply since the start of the year, as suppliers up the unit price.

Yesterday, Fergus Murphy of Murph's Bistro spoke about his €11,000 bill.

Tony Walker says the Slieve Russell Hotel has taken steps to reduce consumption, but needs to maintain a high standard of care for guests.

He said increases have also been seen things like the cost of food, sand for the golf course and even purchasing mattresses.

Tony Walker joined Aaron McElroy on The Wider View and explained how their energy bills have already increased sharply.
