The amount was almost the same as 2018, although the broadcaster says it has since cut pay even further.
New figures from RTE show Ryan Tubridy remains the best paid broadcaster at the station, earning just under half a million euro in 2019.
Ray Darcy, Joe Duffy, Sean O'Rourke and the late Marian Finucane rounded out the top five.
