Dáil Éireann Debate
Mr. Corish: asked the Minister for Lands if he will state the minimum rate of wages at present paid to labourers employed by the Forestry Department in each district in which more than five men are employed.
Mr. Moylan: There is no relationship  between the rate of wages paid to forestry labourers at any particular centre and the number of men employed at that centre. The rates of wages are as follows:—
|Killakee, Saggart and Enniskerry Forests||58/- a week.|
|Delgany, Glencree, Glendalough, Glenealy, Rathnew, Blessington, Roundwood, Hollywood, Dundalk, Donadea, Edenderry, Arklow, Avoca, Avondale, Aughrim, Ballinglen, Glen Imaal, Glenmalure and Rathdrum Forests||55/6 a week.|
