Eamon Delaney: A charity boss paid over €100k? Let's get real

THERE was no surprise in the UK last week that charities have been hit by falls in public donations and in state funding. But what did surprise was that 30 charity chiefs were paid more than £100,000 (€116,000) a year, and the number of executives receiving six-figure salaries had risen by nearly 6pc in the past three years alone.

Yes, in the past three years when the salaries everywhere, but especially those of public monies, should be falling. But it seems the charity sector, of all sectors, is immune from such economies. Eleven of the UK charity executives were paid more in 2013 than the British prime minister's annual £142,500.
