    Thanks Social partnership.
    Thanks ICTU
    Thanks Public sector ... for all the misery inflicted on patients and all the taxes we pay for this monstrous waste.

    What I mean is ...

    How many received between €0 and €1,000

    How many received between €1,000 and €5,000

    How many received between €5,000 and €10,000

    How many received between €10,000 and €25,000

    Etc .

    Too sensitive to publish?
    Yep , i think the public would be furious if the actual full extent of these allowances became known , they tend to drip out little by little in reports and often under the radar ........ And get overlooked by RTE and the IT

    That was two years ago; maybe the individual is getting less this year.....only €185,995 ?

    Important to remember that many, if not most, of the allowances will be tax free.

    Would an FOI query be able to name and shame the individual or sector they are in?

    Looking at the video it seems to have been payment in lieu of "Rest Days".

    As in there are a number of "Rest Days" an employee is allowed per annum.

    And if they don't use them they get paid for them.

    Which of course means they get paid twice for the same days work.
