Independents seeking new co-ordinator
The Technical Group of Independent and small party TDs is planning to hire a new co-ordinator.
The position was previously held by Yvonne Murphy, daughter of Independent Kildare North TD Catherine Murphy (pictured).
Members held interviews for the position, which is funded by contributions from the €41,000 Leaders' Allowance paid to each non-party TD. The group has said it is optimistic of having someone in place before the Dail returns from its summer break next week.
