Dublin Mid-West By-election: Issue of Writ
Pearse Doherty (Donegal, Sinn Fein)
I welcome the moving of the writs for the by-elections for Cork North-Central, Dublin Mid-West, Dublin Fingal and Wexford. I also welcome the fact that we are not waiting an undue period for these by-elections to be held, as we were in this House ten years ago when the then Fine Gael-Green Party Government delayed the holding of by-elections and I was forced to go to the courts.
