Councillors also receive a monthly allowance for attendance at Monthly, Annual, SPC, Budget, Organisation Procedure & Protocol, Deputations and Special Meetings as part of their representational role. This allowance is subject to the rates and rules of the Annual Expenses Allowance, as set out under Local Government (Expenses of Local Authority Members) Regulations 2014 (S.I. No. 236 of 2014). The directions should be read in conjunction with Section 142 (as amended) of the Local Government Act 2001 generally with respect to expenses, and with Section 143 with respect to any allowances for reasonable expenses set by municipal district members for the Cathaoirleach of the municipal district, and the fore-mentioned Regulations. They replace all previous directions regarding expenses allowances of elected members and other relevant persons.
