Not necessarily - if the estate hasn't been transferred from the developer to the local authority or if the developer has set up a management company, Aitricity aren't responsible for it.

OP - you need to talk to your local councillors and find out who is responsible.

6 weeks after a fault I logged in an estate that was taken in to charge two decades ago, and its not been fixed. Not the most effective compared to when ESB Contracts had it.
