Cabinet Set To Approve Pay Rise For Local Councillors

It'll mean a jump from €17,000 to €25,000 a year.

City and county councillors are in line for a 47 per cent pay rise in six weeks' time. 

They're set to be paid 25,000 euro a year from the 1st of July - compared to 17,000 at the moment. 

Cabinet ministers are expected to approve of the increase when they meet this morning. 

Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice says councillors deserve the pay rise.
