They currently earn €17,000 a year.

City and county councillors, including 40 in Co. Kildare, will get an €8,000 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 a year - but this will rise to 25,000 euro a year over the summer.

Independent TD and former councillor, Michael Fitzmaurice, believes the increase is justified.

Deputy Fitzmaurice says councillors deserve the pay rise.
