Local Authority Councillors Set To Receive 50% Pay Increase This Summer

City and county councillors around the country will get an 8,000 euro a year pay rise from the 1st of July.

Cabinet Ministers will be asked to approve implementation of the Moorhead report today, which recommends a 50 per cent pay rise.
They're currently paid just over 17,000 euro a year - but this will rise to 25,000 euro a year over the summer.
