Joint Oireachtas Committee on Environment, Culture and the Gaeltacht
Western Development Commission: Discussion with Chairman Designate
I have two very serious questions for Mr. McGuinness, although one is really a comment. Ballina is very well represented today and I have just been informed that the clerk to the committee, Mr. Eugene Ó Cruadhlaoich, spent 12 years there. Perhaps that is why there were so many rows between the football teams. There is, however, a more serious and important point to be made. I am relieved that the Galway man has left, but we still have a Roscommon man present. Does Mr. McGuinness have plans that would help Mayo to win the All-Ireland football final?
