3.     Deduction at source under the Household Budget Scheme operated by An Post.

4.     Payments can be accepted over the phone at the Cash Desk of Leitrim County Council if you have a debit or credit card. Telephone: 071/9620005 ext 400.

If you need any additional information on an alternative payment option or if you want to be issued with a payment card from the Post Office please contact the Finance Department on 071/9620005 ext 356.
