Two Dublin local authorities have been ranked the most transparent in the country, according to the National Integrity Index.

It assesses the State’s 31 councils based on transparency, accountability and ethics, and has awarded Fingal and South Dublin County Councils joint-first place, while Kerry and Westmeath are the two worst-performing in the index.

Transparency International Ireland, which compiles the research, claims too few councils are publishing their efforts to address the risk of corruption.

Its researcher, Dr Elliott Jordan-Doak, said they should be publishing their Chief Executives’ diaries.

Dr Jordan-Doak said: “There are some other areas that we would like to see more of. We would definitely like to see more information relating to the Chief Executives of each council.

“They do have really substantial power in the councils and we actually found that none of them this year were publishing the diary of the Chief Executive, so that’s one way they could really improve an understanding of the role that the Chief Executives have and really promote transparency with the public as to what exactly they are up to.”
