Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal released a list of the top 25 earners of the decade and it got us thinking.

Who are the best paid civil and public servants in Ireland? So we compiled a list from their respective annual reports. We’ve put their salaries together with the value of their known benefits and bonuses.

Perhaps the new McCarthy group will want to take a look at this.

1. Padraig McManus, CEO, ESB, €654,309

2. Declan Collier, CEO, Dublin Airport Authority, €568,100

3. John Corrigan, Head of NTMA, €500,000 + (Estimated as NTMA refuses to release salary details)

4. Brendan McDonagh, Head of NAMA, €500,000 + (Estimated as NAMA refuses to release salary details)

5. Mike Aynsley, CEO, Anglo Irish Bank, €500,000

6. Donal Connell, CEO, An Post €500,000

7. Cathal Magee, Chief Executive, HSE €415,000

8. Donal Byrne, CEO, Eirgrid, €407,000

9. John Mullins, CEO, Bord Gais, €394,000

10. Gabriel D’arcy CEO, Bord na Mona, €392,000

And what does poor old Taoiseach Brian Cowen earn? A measly €228,000 – not bad in comparison to his British counterpart David Cameron who’s only pulling in €169,500. There are sixty-six civil and public servants on higher pay than Cowen according to The Sunday Tribune.

THE HSE’S EMPLOYMENT embargo is affected frontline services more than management staff, RTÉ reports.

A HSE internal review says that the ban on staff recruitment in HSE West has left 9% of nursing and midwifery posts vacant. Of those vacancies, 67% are in frontline services.

20% of nursing posts in mental health services are vacant.

The report said that the maternity service shortages is increasing the level of risk to mothers and babies. It also said that services which were previously provided are not being made available now.
