Amnesty International Ireland to debate motion on salary of chief executive

The Amnesty International Ireland Conference opens in Dublin this morning.

There will be a motion looking for a major cut of €64,000 off the salary of the chief executive.

Delegates will be asked if they think Colm O'Gorman's pay of €99,000 a year should be cut to the average wage of staff, which is €35,000.

The motion has been put forward by Amnesty member, Kieran O'Sullivan, who insists that action is needed to restore the public’s confidence in the voluntary sector.
