COUNTY COUNCILORS SHOULD GET A PAY RISE – JUNIOR MINISTER PHELAN

TDs have called for a pay rise for county councillors.

Currently councillors get a wage of around €17,000 a year plus expenses.

There’s plans to raise that by as much as €8,000 a year.

Junior Minister at the Department of Local Government and Carlow/Kilkenny TD John Paul Phelan says the current rates are not enough.
