Just a question....
Salary in the region of 350k pa plus Pension
The Cost of 'running the Office' - Travel, Accommodation etc I presume would run into the 100's of thouands+.
At the moment I have difficulty explaining the post to international friends, and usually use the analogy of an Elected Monarch?
Dev seemed to introduce this as a way of distinguishing us from the UK.... But is the office really necessary now?
Why don't we amalgamate the office of President & Taoiseach?
It might mean we have a little more pride in the people with elect into this role (swipe only aimed at FF! In fairness to May I think she's lovely!)
