Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Business of Joint Committee
I would like to be associated with that too. I want to pay tribute to Senator Paul Daly's father Seán. He was a great advocate for agriculture and the rural community. If ever we need a reminder of why we sit on this committee and what this committee is about, we should reflect on the life of a man who was of the land, dedicated himself to it and will be forever immortalised in the land. He was involved in racing through his local track Kilbeggan. He was involved in ploughing and so many aspects of farming. I am glad to see many of those traditions continued by his son. I know it is a great loss not only to the Daly family but to the wider agriculture community and the local Kilbeggan community. May he rest in peace.
