The fact that so many people in Ireland earn huge salaries mostly at our expense exasperates me. Whether it be President; Taoiseach; Ministers; Broadcasters like Finucane, Duffy etc; Higher civil servants; Judges and others who are world leaders in terms of salary for a country the size of greater Manchester is something awesome.I know bankers paid themselves off with our funds too ! How did it come to this and where and when did it really take off. I know we had Devlin, and Buckley reports and of course, benchmarking, but I do not really have the knowledge and insight into it all. I am merely looking for knowledge and would like the views of others who may have some or most of answers that I do not, in my ignorance, have.
