Alan Farrell TD and the Tivoli Jardim hotel in Lisbon, Portugal

Via The Irish Sun:

Whiplash compo claim TD Alan Farrell hit taxpayers for €3,000 for two foreign trips during the time he said his injuries were at their worst.

…Less than two months after the prang, he spent two nights at the four-star Tivoli Jardim Lisbon while travelling with the Oireachtas Justice Committee to study decriminalisation of drugs.

The total cost of the June trip to the Irish taxpayer was €1,579.53.

His three-night Helsinki trip for the annual meeting of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe just a month later set us back €1,310.18.

Farrell stayed at the swanky Hilton Helsinki Kalastajatorppa at a cost of €507 with a receipt for a €3 train fare also claimed.
