Charlie Weston: A garda earning €75,000 and living on cornflakes? It doesn't add up
SOMETHING does not add up about the garda sergeant whose wife has written to Cabinet members claiming the family can't feed its children.
The sergeant earns €75,000 a year when overtime and allowances are taken into account.
But his wife has written to politicians claiming the family has just €109 left a week after income tax, the universal social charge, pension, health insurance, mortgage and utility deductions have been taken out of the pay packet.
