County and City Managers, Local Authority Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), formally are entitled to claim for travel and subsistence costs incurred as part of their official duties, in accordance with the relevant travel and subsistence circulars. All local authorities are obliged to ensure that only essential travel is undertaken and that related expenditure is critically appraised and monitored.

A CEO may claim up to 7.5% of their salary in substitution of motor mileage rates contained in the travel and subsistence circulars, where a local authority considers that those allowances do not adequately recompense the CEO for the extent to which their car is used for official business.

A CEO may claim an allowance in respect of entertainment expenses incurred by them in the course of their duties. The level of allowance is related to the number of Directors of Service reporting to the CEO, as set out in the following table:


Up to €2,095

CEO and one Director of Service

Up to €3,683

CEO and two Directors of Service

Up to €5,270

CEO and three or more Directors of Service

Up to €6,858
