Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (18 Dec 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I want to mention the awful and tragic death of Nadine Lott and to offer my condolences to her family, particularly her young daughter.

Seanad: Criminal Records (Exchange of Information) Bill 2019: Second Stage (17 Dec 2019)

Lorraine Clifford Lee: I welcome the Minister to the House. Fianna Fáil will be supporting this very important legislation.
