Civil Service Pensions
Average Civil Service Pension
There are differing figures. However, The Nevin Economic Research Institute puts the average Public Service Pension at just under €19,500 p.a in 2012. There were further reductions in 2013 so the figure is probably fairly accurate.

Numbers Receiving Civil Service Pensions.
The total number of Civil Service Pensioners was 16,228 in 2014 according to Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER) cited in The Journal on April 7th 2014. This will have fluctuated up or down depending on whether the number of pensioners dying since that date exceeded the number of new retirements.
Civil Service Pensions over €100K
The article cited above states that DPER advised that 35 retired Civil Servants received pensions in excess of €100K p.a. before the 2010 cuts. If that figure is accurate the 2010 and 2013 cuts would have reduced the number considerably.
