Taoiseach’s chief economic adviser appointed to plum European post
THE Taoiseach’s chief economic adviser Andrew McDowell has been appointed to a plum European post.
Andrew McDowell, who is widely trusted within Government circles, has emerged as the Irish nominee to the European Investment Bank (EIB).
The post comes with an annual salary of €270,000.
Mr Kenny previously came under fire over claims he expressed his desire to make a government nomination to the European Investment Bank (EIB) without a proper interview process.
At the time, Transport Minister Shane Ross claimed that he objected to the move and demanded an open process.
