The Taoiseach says he’s “very much” worth his salary of about €3,500 per week – €185,000 per year.

Enda Kenny was asked about his pay level at the launch of the Government’s Low Pay Commission to advise on the minimum wage.

The eight-person Commission will report back in July – and the Taoiseach says the current rate of €8.65 per hour will be changed ‘incrementally’ over time.
