After the "Jobstown Protest" in November 2014, which saw a sit down protest occur in front of Tánaite Joan Burton's car, David Begg claimed that Burton's assistant, Karen O'Connell, was beaten and kicked. These claims were subsequently proven false.

On 13 Jan 2016 Tánaiste Joan Burton in her role as Social Protection Minister appointed David Begg, former General Secretary of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), as chair of the Pension Authority.

Begg's study of Northern European open economies, Lost in Transition, was published internationally by Palgrave Macmillan in February 2016.

Begg holds Master’s Degree in International Relations from DCU and a PhD in Sociology from Maynooth University.
