Senators never fail to astonish

SO, Senator Donie Cassidy has apologised for saying it "wasn't easy for senators with families to get by on €65,000 a year".

This was in response to Senator David Norris.

Mr Norris said it was "astonishing" for any politician to have suggested €65,000 was hard to live on at a time when "people are losing their jobs, are living on the minimum wage of €8.60 per hour and cannot pay their mortgages".
