City and county councillors will get an 8,000 euro a year pay rise from the 1st of July.

Cabinet Ministers will be asked to approve implementation of the Moorhead report today, which recommends a 50 per cent pay rise.

They're currently paid just over 17,000 euro a year - but this will rise to 25,000 euro a year over the summer.
