In the programme for Government, under political and constitutional reform, it is stated that the new political landscape in Ireland presents a historic opportunity to reform Irish politics radically. As this Thirty-second Dáil appears to be coming to an end, the opportunity to reform Irish politics radically has been totally missed, as we can see over recent weeks. I feel that the image of the Dáil bar, where alcohol is available during working hours, sends out a very bad image. I know of no other workplace where alcohol is served during working hours. I have no issue with the Dáil bar serving non-alcoholic beverages or with a cafe. The availability of alcohol here in our workplace is wrong.
