Keaveney makes top 10 expenses list

Donegal Senator Cecilia Keaveney has made the top ten list of the highest claimants of expenses covering a two year period and published in today's newspapers.

Senator Keaveney was the fifth highest claimant of all TD's and Senators in 2007 and 2008 claiming for thirty thousand six hundred and twenty nine euro.

The latest figures show that over that period Senator Keaveney was one of only eight senators or TD's that travelled abroad more than ten time.

However the Senator is the furthest from Dublin and her expenses include a taxable commission allowance.
