Seanad: Election of Leas-Chathaoirleach (18 Sep 2020)

Diarmuid Wilson: I speak as a Cavan man, on behalf of my colleagues in the Fianna Fáil party and as a personal friend of Senator Joe O'Reilly for many decades, even though I am far younger than him.

It was not...

Seanad: Election of Leas-Chathaoirleach (18 Sep 2020)
