JOAN Burton has fired Michael Healy-Rae from the governing body of the Citizens' Information Board.
Last Friday, in the aftermath of the Celebrities Go Wild phone-line story, the Kerryman became the first TD to be removed from a State board under new legislation.
The Minister for Social Protection used her new powers to dismiss Mr Healy-Rae from his €5,895-a-year Citizens' Information Board nixer.
