Councils in U-turn over chiefs' leave; HOLIDAYS.

By RORY TEVLIN COUNCIL managers were forced into an embarrassing U-turn yesterday as it was announced their annual leave will be capped at 32 days.

The County and City Managers decision follows controversy this week as it was revealed a number of brass-necked managers were taking off up to 42 days a year - excluding public holidays.

It emerged Longford County Council manager Tim Caffrey was entitled to 42 days annual leave.

It was also revealed that Kerry County manager Tom Curran and Kilkenny County manager Joe Crockett are entitled to 40 days off.

The CCMA yesterday said: "Managers have agreed a maximum of 32 days annual leave will be implemented on a voluntary basis."
