Clr David Alcorn gets top post in one of FF’s last acts in Government

Donegal County Councillor David Alcorn has been listed today as one of FIanna Fails 'cronies and insiders' to receive a lucrative post in one of Fianna Fail's last acts in Government.

The Irish Independent claims the Fianna Fail led Government is 'stuffing quangos and state boards with political cronies and insiders in its last weeks of office'

Donegal Fianna Fail councillor David Alcorn has been appointed to the National Roads Authority, which paid its directors a total of €98,000 in 2008.

The paper says that  291 plum jobs on state boards are to be filled by ministers by the end of February as the Government bestows its final gifts to its supporters before the expected decimation in the General Election.
