(11 May 2017)

I thank those who were involved in it, the political representatives,...

Seanad: Heritage Bill 2016: Report and Final Stages (13 Apr 2017)

Heather Humphreys: ...the Senators are trying to achieve. The only problem is that it will be impractical to implement. The amendment would restrict Waterways Ireland's ability to provide new infrastructure such as moorings and weirs along the canals. For example, water levels need to be lowered due to flooding and other circumstances which would impede navigation. Waterways Ireland, through its marine...
