Period Poverty: Motion
Jan O'Sullivan (Limerick City, Labour)
I am sharing time with Deputy Sherlock.
Tá áthas orm m'ainm a chur faoin rún seo ó gCácas na mBan. Tá áthas orm freisin go bhfuil sé á phlé sa Dáil inniu. This is very much a cross-party motion, which is very welcome. As a member of the Women's Caucus, I thank in particular our chair and deputy chair for introducing the debate, but also those who have given us support, many of whom are in the Chamber listening to the debate. I pay particular tribute to Plan International Ireland and Homeless Period Ireland. Claire Hunt is in the Gallery. She is pretty much a one-man operation.
