Before I adjourn the Thirtieth Dáil, I would like to say a few words. As parliamentarians, we turn to the final arbiters, those who hold to themselves the right to designate the rulers of the State, namely, the people.

Some of our number retired during this term, some passed on. Let us remember them and the good work that they did in the service of our people. Some here today have signalled their intention not to seek re-election. I would like to pay tribute to you now and to thank you for your work, some spanning many, many years. You can be proud of your achievements.

To those who are seeking re-election, I wish you well. You will bring to the rulers of this State your policies so that they may decide the national policy according to the requirements of the common good. It is now for them to decide the path to be followed. The Dáil now stands adjourned. Tá an Dáil ar athló.
