Expensive lunch October 11, 2018

I was thinking this seemed a bit pricey…

A spokesperson for the Minister for Communications has said Denis Naughten did pay for lunch for a businessman involved in the tender for the National Broadband Plan.

The lunch for David McCourt and his daughter cost €37 and it was deducted from Minister’s Naughten’s salary in July under the Oireachtas payments system, the spokesperson said.

After all anyone who has been in the Dáil self-service will know it’s very very reasonable. Then I read that…

In response to a question by Fianna Fáil TD James Browne, about an invitation to Mr McCourt to the members restaurant in the Dáil on 18 April for a birthday party, the minister said that the booking that day was made under his name.

How pricey for the Minister remains to be seen but it is intriguing how embattled a figure he has become in recent time.
