Siobhan McLaughlin, a Labour candidate here in the past, has been appointed to the board of Pobal.
She is one of more than 20 people with close links to either Labour or Fine Gael to get such appointments this year.
The mother of two contested Donegal North East for the Labour Party in 2007.
She received just 703 votes – or 1.8% of the vote.
The government parties have given dozens of jobs to friends and party colleagues – with wages and remuneration running into millions of euro.
Last night a source in the Labour Party in Donegal said the appointment would prove ‘extremely embarrassing’.
