Furious parents demand answers on charity top-ups

Angry parents of children with special needs who attend a St John of God-run school are calling on the charity to reveal the names and salaries of all executives who received top-ups.
The families said they are furious that 14 senior managers who work in the organisation shared in a €1.64m upfront payout to cover pension and other contract liabilities.
Aisling McNiffe, whose 11-year-old son Jack attends St Raphael's, said: "I am disgusted at the news at a time when we are suffering a series of cuts."
Separately, it was confirmed that the troubled charity Console will shut down, leaving a massive trail of debt and costing the jobs of its 12 staff.
The decision to wind up the charity was taken at a meeting between interim CEO David Hall and the HSE. It comes after two tumultuous weeks of ongoing revelations about founder Paul Kelly.
