Order of Business
I and my party colleagues support Senator Craughwell's amendment to the Order of Business. Perhaps the Leader might not push the amendment to a vote, but if he does, so be it.
I thank all of my fellow Members and the staff. I wish everybody a happy Christmas and new year. I hope everybody gets the time to have a break, slow down a little bit and enjoy time with friends and family. I thank the Cathaoirleach and Leas-Cathaoirleach and everyone who has chaired sessions here. I thank all of the Seanad office team, particularly Mr. Martin Groves and Ms Bridget Doody. I wish them a happy Christmas and hope they get a well-deserved break. I look forward to working with everybody for the next year, at least, as we all try and do our best for the citizens of Ireland and pursue and progress valuable legislation through these Houses.
