An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Mark Daly (Fianna Fail)
I join Senator Buttimer and other colleagues in welcoming the students from Listowel, which is a great town. I hope there are future writers among them. Listowel is famous for its writers. One of the great writers from Listowel wrote a letter to Brendan Kennelly, who, in turn, had written to one of the people working at the newspaper The Kerryman. In the early days, Brendan Kennelly was not as good as he became. He got a letter back stating that in his writings he was making all the right mistakes. I hope the students in the Gallery all become writers and come back to visit us again soon. We are delighted they are here and we hope they enjoy their day in Seanad Éireann and in Leinster House.
