Visit of Georgian Delegation
Before I call on the next speaker, I am sure Members of the House will wish to join me in welcoming a parliamentary delegation from Georgia, led by Ms Sofio Katsarava, chair of the Foreign Relations Committee and members of the Georgia-Ireland parliamentary friendship group. I also welcome the chargé d'affaires of the Georgian Embassy to Ireland, Mr. George Zurabashvili, who is almost an honorary Member of this House. On my behalf, and on behalf of all of my colleagues in Seanad Éireann, I extend a very warm welcome to them and good wishes for a very successful visit to Ireland.
I join in the Cathaoirleach's welcome to the delegation from Georgia to the House. They have built up a very good relationship with the House, especially since - I apologise but I cannot pronounce his surname - George's appointment.
