Business of Seanad
Brian Hayes (Fine Gael)
No, Senator Moylan brought a pear for everyone.
I thank the Clerk of the Seanad, the Assistant Clerk and the Seanad Office for ensuring the House is run efficiently and smoothly. I wish a happy and holy Christmas to all Members, particularly to the Leader, other leaders and spokespersons. I thank the parliamentary reporters who do a fantastic job in ensuring our mutterings are on the Internet as soon as possible. I thank the ushers. I particularly thank The Irish Times correspondent, Mr. Jimmy Walsh. I thank Mr. Eamonn McCormack from the Leader's office who does a terrific job in ensuring the smooth and efficient workings of the House.
