John McGuinness calls for former CRC chief executive to return part of his retirement package

john-mcguinness-TBJohn McGuinness says the former chief executive of the CRC Paul Kiely should return part of his retirement package.

Mr Kiely received in the region of 740 thousand euro when he retired in 2012.

Public Accounts Committee Chairman Deputy John McGuinness says the legalities of Mr Kiely’s package need to be examined
