Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government
Irish Water Safety: Chairperson Designate
As a fellow Cork person, I welcome Mr. O'Sullivan. I am from Douglas in Cork and my in-laws are from Glengarriff in Cork but we can talk about that later. I thank Mr. O'Sullivan for taking on these roles and responsibilities on a voluntary basis and I also thank all the volunteers around the country. After 40 years of experience, what does Mr. O'Sullivan see as the biggest risk we face? Are the resources at the disposal of the organisation adequate to meet that risk? What specific supports would he like from this committee and the Oireachtas, in general, to support the work of his organisation?
