Money on a table

1 September 2021

The local authority has released data under freedom of information legislation. The data shows that 2,228 claims were settled between 2018 and 2020.

The council paid out €13.2 million to settle 731 claims in 2018, €12.2 million to settle 853 claims in 2019 and €8 million to settle 644 claims last year.

Over three years the number of claims declined. The value of the highest claims increased from around €100,000 to around €200,000.

Members of the public made the vast majority of claims. This is more than council employees and includes legal costs.
