Car bonuses fury for Irish Water chiefs.
MANAGERS at Irish Water are in line for an annual [euro]420,000 in car allowances.
The number of bosses getting the [euro]10,500 allowance has risen by 50% since January.
Irish Water confirmed 40 senior managers will receive the payment.
Despite growing outrage over bonuses, Irish Water said it paid extra perks as it had hired more staff.
The firm faced criticism over revelations underperforming employees who "need improvement" will receive a 9% bonus on top of their [euro]90,000 salaries.
A spokesman told the Irish Examiner the car allowance was paid to managers who used their own cars in the course of their duties and was fully taxable.
