Judges’ Pay in Ireland
31 July, 2011
The chart below (click on it to expand) was included in European judicial systems / Efficiency and quality of justice, Edition 2010 (data 2008) published by the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ). See page 210 if it is difficult to read here. Thanks to Namawinelake for bringing it to my attention via Twitter. Irish judges’ pay is ridiculously out of line, even before their stupendous pension arrangements are taken into account, and even after the voluntary pay cuts since 2008.
It makes it hard to have any sympathy for those poor souls who are suffering so much, at least according to the Irish Independent this week in this article.
