RTÉ executives are getting €822,218 a year in car allowances, it has emerged, even as the station tries to drastically reduce its costs.

The total allowance being shared among 70 managers is worth almost as much as the €1.1m it plans to save by imposing a pay freeze on staff.

It is the single highest amount in a list of allowances claimed by the station's workforce, which are worth a total of €4.1m.
