Defence forces staff should have 'sufficient' pay, President Michael D Higgins said today

Higgins was speaking at an event celebrating members of the Defence Forces.

The level of pay for members of the Defence Forces has been a recurring issue in recent months.

“Those providing such a vital service as those in our Defence Forces must be real partners in interpreting and responding to such changes. Should this not happen, there is a real danger of a gap opening-up between our expressed appreciation of their work and the circumstances we deliver for its practice,” he said.

During the event, Higgins also paid tribute to the work of Defence Forces staff and their families.
