It's worth reading the article. It seems his salary was a couple of grand over the limit during the three year period that he actaully made donations to Bernardos in excess of €80k.

That's some f-n hypocrite?

I read the article.

He was 7% over the max.
His 'donations' come from the side jobs he gets as a result of his position with Barnardos

He's no Frank Flannery! I think this young journo chap Colin Gleeson might be better advised to find a real story.

Chief executive resigns as Goal reels from Syria inquiry
Charity faces US inquiry into alleged bribery and bid-rigging on Turkey-Syria border

Barry Andrews has resigned as chief executive of Goal as the aid agency reels from a US investigation into its multimillion-euro Syria operation, The Irish Times has learned...

His departure comes as Ireland’s biggest aid agency grapples with a crisis surrounding a US investigation into its aid operation in Syria. The US government’s foreign aid arm, USAID, earlier this year told Goal and a number of other agencies in the field to halt certain procurement with American funds pending the outcome of its inquiry into alleged bribery and bid-rigging involving suppliers on the Turkey-Syria border.

Goal to name new general manager this evening
Aid agency Goal is expected to name a new general manager to replace former chief executive Barry Andrews following a board meeting this evening.
Mr Andrews chose to end his four-year tenure last week amid continued fallout from allegations of bribery and bid rigging against the charity, and a spokesman for Goal confirmed that the new appointment will be made on an interim basis.
The Irish-based organisation came to the attention of USAID, the US government’s foreign aid arm, over the summer when it was ordered to cease procurement operations in Syria due to questions over a €154,000 tender for aid items in the war-torn country.
The Government subsequently decided to withhold a total of more than €10 million in humanitarian funding earmarked for Goal, on top of the €6.2 million initially suspended by USAID, pending the outcome of investigations.

Jonathan Irwin doing a lot of PR damage to the Jack and Jill Foundation with his odd performance on behalf of Pat Hickey on RTE Radio.

I didn't hear the interview, Pat must be a good friend as he tweeted this yesterday "So pleased that my old pal Pat Hickey has got his passport back no thanks to Shane Ross or Min Flanagan". https://twitter.com/JohnJoedotcom/status/799014661312024577

The people attracted to the Charity Sector appear to be no worse or better than any other area of society. I know of a particular charity shop where multiple volunteers have had to be replaced due to dishonesty. Some of the clients likewise are not angels either.
Though "being no worse nor better" isn't going to get the donations flooding in or motivate people to volunteer.
