‘SECRET’ top-up payments to disability charity chiefs on salaries up to €150,000 are being investigated by Department of Health officials. The officials are conducting a high-level probe into how the charities are spending €1.5bn in state funding.They now believe some senior executives are getting extra payments on top of their salaries.
…One leading charity, Rehab, made it clear that it did not welcome [Health Minister] Dr Reilly’s request for information on its chief executive Angela Kerins’ package. Rehab chairman Brian Kerr told the minister that Ms Kerins’ remuneration was “not a matter in which you have a role” as her salary was funded from money raised from other commercial sources rather than out of the €36m the charity received from the State last year. He did, however, tell Dr Reilly that Ms Kerins received a salary of €234,000. But he denied she was getting bonus payments on top of that
Spare a thought for Angela though.
She made €400,000 in 2009.
