The Attorney General who advised the Government against a rent hike freeze is also a landlord, the Irish Mirror has learned.
The AG is required to disclose to the Taoiseach interests which could “materially influence you in or in relation to the performance of your official functions”.
Via The Irish Mirror:
Paul Gallagher is listed on the Residential Tenancies Board register as the owner of a five- bedroom house in Milltown, Dublin, along with his wife…
This is separate from the family home, which is located in leafy Ballsbridge, and another property that Mr Gallagher owns in Kerry.
A spokesman for the Attorney General told the Irish Mirror: “The matter was fully disclosed to the Taoiseach and the Cabinet.”
