FORMER CHIEF EXECUTIVE of the Central Remedial Clinic, Paul Kiely, received a €742,000 pension and pay-off package when he retired in March of last year.

This payment was discussed in depth at a Public Accounts Committee meeting with CRC staff during the week.

It emerged that €700,000 was taken from the charitable fund, Friends and Supporters of the CRC, to help fund Kiely’s retirement package.

Today, former CRC chairman Hamilton Goulding said in an interview with the Daily Mail that it would be a “good gesture” if Kiely paid some of the money back, but he added: “It is not as if he has not been entitled to some of it for all the work he did put in over three decades”.

Today, we ask you: Should Paul Kiely have to give back his CRC retirement package?
