The energy bills for a number of cafes, pubs and restaurants in Castlebar have already increased by 150 percent so far this year, and continue to rise, according to the President of Castlebar Chamber of Commerce Bernard Hughes.

He says these increasing costs are not sustainable and many businesses and householders are extremely worried coming into the winter months.

Speaking to Midwest News Editor Teresa O’Malley, Bernard says business has reasonably buoyant in the region over the summer months, but the future is of increasing concern.
