Noel Curran, who will take up the position of director general next February, will receive a basic salary of €250,000 -- €11,000 less than his predecessor.

In Tuesday's Budget, Brian Lenihan announced he was introducing a €250,000 cap on all public-sector salaries.

A statement from RTE last night confirmed Mr Curran would receive less than the current director general, Cathal Goan.

"Noel Curran has confirmed his intention to comply with the €250,000 salary ceiling proposed by the Government in respect of public bodies," it read.

"The salary of the director general currently is €261,000, voluntarily reduced from a contractual entitlement of €297,973."
