The Port of Cork paid more to its directors and chief executive in 2012 than it paid to the government in the form of a dividend.
The state company's recently filed accounts show that while it paid the state €358,976 last year - from a profit of €1.37 million - this was almost half the €634,351 it paid to the exchequer in 2011. Last year, fees and "other emoluments" paid to the directors combined, came to €475,555.
