Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation

This time last year the Canadian Parliament passed a unanimous motion designating the month of March as Irish Heritage Month. Will the Taoiseach and Ceann Comhairle acknowledge that this was done? It is the only country in the world that has done this. It did it to mark the contribution of Irish people to Canada in the past and in the future. It was unanimously passed by the Canadian Parliament as a gesture of acknowledgement of what Ireland has done for Canada over the years. I want to make that known and to acknowledge my gratitude to the Canadian Parliament and to James Maloney MP in particular, who drove this initiative.
