Given the outcome of the vote last week, there is a danger of us in the North being marooned to that Government against...

Seanad: Order of Business (6 Jul 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Given that we are in the midst of this crisis, it is imperative that we hear from the Taoiseach in terms of the next steps with respect to this forum in particular, what we will do next and how we can give a voice to ensure that one part of Ireland is not in Europe and the other part of it is out of it.
