Listen: Donohue Denies Gda. Commissioner Pension Payment Was A "Sweetner".

: 09/12/2017 - 15:37

The Minister for Finance has denied the pension payout he approved for the Garda Commissioner was a sweetener for her to leave office early.

Paschal Donohoe has confirmed he personally signed off on the package and learned of Noirin O'Sullivan's retirement late last week.

The government allowed Commissioner O'Sullivan to include time she served in an acting capacity to qualify for the maximum possible amount.

Minister Donohoe says there is no issue with that.
