Ministerial helicopter flights 2005 to 2009 Posted: 22 Feb 2011 04:17 PM PST Helicopter flights taken by Ministers, including flight time, estimated cost, minister name, route (in some cases) and diary entry for that day (where available). Bertie Ahern was the biggest user – he got around. From early 2005 to late 2009, about €383,243.31 was spent ferrying ministers around by helicopter alone. This excludes the cost of ministerial cars, which would often be involved at some level in each trip. It also does not include the use of government jets. This is the approximate breakdown (in a few cases two Ministers traveled together):

 Bertie Ahern €76,491.65

Willie O’Dea €45,873.34

Noel Dempsey €39,802.5

Eamon O Cuiv €29,590.83

Michael McDowell €25,529.99

Mary Coughlan €25,135.83

 Mary Harney €23,352.5

Dermot Ahern €22,431.67

Brian Cowen €17,894.17

Mary Hanafin €14,177.5

Martin Cullen €13,455.83

Brian Lenihan €13,095.83

 Batt O’Keeffe €12,822.5

John O’Donoghue €10,475

John Gormley €6,890

Seamus Brennan €3,975

Brendan Smith €3,180

Dick Roche €3,180
