County Councillors to get pay increase in July

Leitrim county counillors are currently paid a base wage of €17,000 before expenses.

All county councillors will get an €8,000 euro a year pay rise from July 1.

Cabinet Ministers will be asked to approve implementation of the Moorhead report today, which recommends a 50%  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.

Some TDs say the payrise is justified.
