Period Poverty: Motion
Marcella Corcoran Kennedy (Offaly, Fine Gael)
We certainly have an uphill battle ahead to have this important issue discussed more widely when those responsible for covering news stories do not consider this issue important enough to turn up. This is my last sentence and I beg the Acting Chairman's indulgence on this. The Minister of State, Deputy Jim Daly, has turned up. We are relying on him to progress this motion on behalf of the women of Ireland, so no pressure.
