66 TDs and Senators have had to refund over €105,000 because they had low attendance.

Sinn Fein's Pauline Tully says she's surprised more TDs and Senators weren't returning travel allowances.

66 TDs and Senators have had to refund over 105,000 euro between them last year because they didn't attend for the required number of days to receive full expenses.

The Cavan TD repaid the most at almost €9,000.

Deputy Tully says she attended every day that the Dail sat, and outside of that, followed public health guidelines on unnecessary travel.

She told Shannonside Northern Sound that she was honest in her records and had no issue returning parts of her allowance.
