Only two Oireachtas members did not receive any of the payments.
Newstalk Radio's Political Editor, Shane Coleman, said there does not seem to have been much fall-off in claims throughout the summer months.
Mr Coleman said: "I had a look back through the figures over the last four months and for every TD I could see, the amount seemed to be the same for each month.
"It seems to be an annual allowance that is paid retrospectively each month, effectively divided by twelve."
