Criminal Justice (Corruption Offences) Bill 2017: Committee Stage
Senator Leyden indicated he wishes to speak to this amendment but he before he does so, I take this opportunity to welcome to the Public Gallery officers, members and friends of the Athleague branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann with renowned musicians and singers. I understand they are guests of the Senator and that his wife, Mary, and son, Conor, of Castlecoote Lodge bar and replica Dáil and Seanad lounge in County Roscommon are also here. They are very welcome to the House. I take this opportunity to point out that there is tradition that when one is a guest, one does not have to pay for anything and that applies to the members of the visiting party.
