We asked Enda Kenny to tell us why he's worth €3,500-a-week

The Taoiseach’s salary has been back in the news lately. So we asked him about it…

THE TAOISEACH RAISED eyebrows last week when he said “very much so” in response to a question about whether he was worth his €3,500-a-week salary.

The response drew criticism in some quarters though it should be pointed out that Enda Kenny has taken two pay cuts since he took office in 2011.

When we had the Taoiseach into TheJournal.ie yesterday we asked him to explain why he’s worth his €185,350 annual salary and also whether he’d take another pay cut:
