How many TDs are landlords, and how much do they earn?

Our producer @ali_mcconnell crunched the numbers, and we debated whether this was a conflict of interest for the TDs, with @bridsmithTD, @Damien_English and @lorcansirr

Here's what we found:
According to the latest available Register of Members' Interests for Dáil Eireann (for the year 2018):

🔴 35 TDs in the current Dáil are landlords

🔴 That's 22% of the 158 sitting TDs
🔴 Fianna Fáil has the most Landlord TDs in the 2019 Register, with 17, which is 38% of their TDs

🔴 Fine Gael has the second-most, with 10 landlords, or 20% of their TDs

🔴 There are 7 Independent TD landlords, and 1 Labour
