An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Paul Gavan (Sinn Fein)
As we are coming to the end of our session, I want to thank the staff of the Houses for their support and patience throughout the term. I wish all colleagues of all political persuasions a good summer.
I am glad the Leader is here because on the previous two occasions I raised this issue, his deputy was in his place. I have been asking for three years for a debate on the US military's use of Shannon Airport and for three years the Leader has bobbed, weaved, ducked and dived to avoid it. He would make a great American footballer.
