Taoiseach Micheál Martin and his senior team of ministers will cost an extra €50,000 over a full five years in government.

The changes in ministerial pay will mean Mr Martin, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and other senior ministers cost the taxpayer €10,000 more per year than the same roles in the former Fine Gael-led minority government.
