An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Denis O'Donovan (Fianna Fail)
Before I call the next speaker, I would like to welcome to the Visitors Gallery some guests of the Leas-Chathaoirleach, Senator Paul Coghlan. We have Isolde Liebherr, Johanna Platt, Karl Weisskopf, Michael Brennan and David Cronin. For those who would not be aware, Liebherr is a very famous international outfit with a particularly strong tradition in the Killarney region. It has created about 800 jobs. That is why by good esteem the Leas-Chathaoirleach is looking after them very well. I remember visiting Buenos Aires in South America as a Member of the Lower House about 20 years ago. I witnessed that Liebherr was erecting three massive cranes on the docks in Buenos Aires. It is not just Killarney; it is well renowned. The visitors are more than welcome and I hope they enjoy their stay.
