and lets not forget all those others who are giving up so much by going with the Ministers on their trips, these brave people never get a mention salue

By the way, its interesting that in all the bulls1t and pitch fork waving over Rory McIlroy playing golf with Donald Trump, the Irish media forgot to mention that Trump's Government sanctioned an extra 3000 Irish Visa's at the same time ........ not that I am saying the media have an agenda, its just they seem to forget certain news stories.

I see the Canonization of Saint Enda has started, so much for not sending a lame duck to Washington with a bowl of this myth http://www.irishcentral.com/opinion/oth ... -238173881

Five social workers were each paid more than €370,000 to represent children in court - with one earning €307,000 in a single year.
http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/re ... 82838.html wuu wuu wuu wuu wuu wuu

Dare I ask at what point would someone not realise that there is something wrong with this carry on and stop the gravy train ?? I reckon its just tip of the iceberg and there is loads more across the board taking home huge money despite having a basic salary scale of €35k. I have no doubt that we have plenty of money to run the state and solve our hospital/housing problems, its just we spend it without any due dilligence. Years and years of cosy deals has seen no limits on the extras attached to some salaries and its getting impossible to find an honest answer as where the money goes.

€307,000 IN A SINGLE YEAR must sound like a lotto win for some and yet nothing will change, no questions will get answered and by next week .... nobody cares as its business as usual aboard the gravy train.

And we thought there was only a "golden circle" in the property business!

Who is in control of the madhouse??

I only had a two bit crappy job but the amount of oversight of every aspect of the spending in that job. How can these huge bodies slip through the net? I was feeling sorry for Tusla in the whistleblower affair but, I am not so sorry for them now if they cannot control their spending of what must be public money!

NO NO NO .... you want to go after their partners investments, thats how they operate. I would take a wild guess that you would find a fair few with partners who have investments made in their maiden names (and dont just search for property in this country). I am reminded of hearing whispers of how several Sheriffs alegedly bought warehouses in their partners and relations names and then rented them out at sky high rates to house the magnificent computer voting system we so stupidly bought.

Don't forget to search in the Gaelige names for themselves and the wives
partners and significant others. Maybe the PPS No would be the way to
check. Don't forget PEE Flynn had to run 3 homes as an elected politician.

Mmmm I wonder what it takes to make you go over the top and decide to show the world how much petty cash you have ...

http://www.irishmirror.ie/news/irish-ne ... t-10014806

Probably just as well he has it under his matress, if he gave it to our glorious state .... who knows what they would waste it on

http://www.thejournal.ie/brian-o-domhna ... 1-Jul2016/

Two completely different ends of the spectrum BUT both have traits in common ...... arrogant and wasteful.
