Two officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs were present. We need to recognise the work...

Seanad: Address to Seanad Éireann by Members of the European Parliament (22 Sep 2021)

Fiona O'Loughlin: My apologies. We had organised a meeting with the Alzheimer Society of Ireland that I had to leave the Chamber to attend. This is a very good innovation in Seanad business.

There was...

What...

Seanad: CervicalCheck Tribunal (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (15 Jul 2021)

While I appreciate that the access programme has to be...
