TDs basic salary rises over €100,000 from today

From today, the basic salary for TDs will rise above €100,000 from €98,113 this year as new pay rises come into effect, as reported by the Irish Independent.

TD’s who make €70,000 – €150,000 per year will see their wages being restored to 2008 levels. The measures were signed off on Thursday by members of Cabinet with restored levels also being returned to civil servants.


Civil servants who earn between €70,000 – €150,000 will see their salary rise by approximately 2% as part of the restoration process, which was reported by the Irish Times.

In regards to the salary for Senators, their basic pay will rise to €70,134 per year which is less than a year after their pay rose by 2% during the last public sector agreement back in October.

Staff who work in other State sectors such as education, Defence Forces, health service and other state industries who earn between €70,000 to €150,000 will also be eligible for the pay rise.


TD’s and civil servants have been on reduced salaries since 2008 as a result of the financial crisis as part of the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act.
