Half of TDs are now worth over one million euro. A political rich list has been compiled by the Sunday Independent showing an estimated combined wealth of all TDs in Leinster House at over €216M.

However the research points to a gender pay gap with just 11 female politicians thought to be worth one million euro.

Independent TD Michael Lowry, representative of Tipperary in the Dáil, has been named Ireland’s richest politician with an estimated worth of €6.4M.

Michael Healy-Rae, Independent TD for Kerry, is second richest with an estimated worth of €5.4M.

Dublin Fine Gael TD and Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton, is the third wealthiest with a worth of almost €5M.
