Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Business of Joint Committee
I remind members, delegates and everyone in the Visitors Gallery to turn off their phones, as distinct from leaving them in silent or flight mode. The sound equipment is quite sensitive and they may interfere with the transmission of proceedings and thus reduce our opportunity of appearing on "Oireachtas Report" or any other broadcast. It would, therefore, be helpful if those present turned off their phones completely.
On behalf of the joint committee, I express our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the late Anthony Foley who passed away at the weekend. He had represented his club, Munster and this country with distinction on the playing field and later progressed to management. His passing is a massive shock to the entire rugby community, his community in counties Limerick and Clare, the country and the international rugby community. He will be sadly missed. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
