Business of Seanad
Before proceeding with the Order of Business, I welcome Councillor Mary Greene and her group of students from the Convent of Mercy in Carrick-on-Suir. Councillor Greene has been a regular visitor to the Public Gallery with student groups over the years. I understand she is not going forward for election on this occasion. We wish her well in the future.
I thank the Cathaoirleach for allowing me to welcome the group from my own town of Carrick-on-Suir, which includes the girls from Scoil Mhuire, Councillor Greene and other members of the school staff. As Councillor Greene will not be standing in the forthcoming elections, I take this opportunity to thank her for all her work in the community of Rathgormack, which is the neighbouring community to mine.
