Death of Shane O'Farrell: Motion
I welcome the Minister, Mrs. Lucia O'Farrell and her family. I offer again my condolences on the tragic death of their son and brother, Shane, on 2 August 2011. Shane and the family have a long connection with the law school in Trinity College. As a Trinity Senator, I pay tribute to my colleague, Senator Norris, who has campaigned so hard and doggedly to ensure justice for them as a family and have this motion heard today. He persisted against the odds on that. I commend him on that and offer my support and that of my Labour Party colleagues for the motion. I am glad Senator Conway said he Government will not oppose the motion.
