Seanad Motion on Education
Every month or so we get the opportunity to introduce our own Bill or Motion in the Seanad. This week we introduced a motion on Education, calling for a new National Convention to tackle the whole issue of school access. My contribution can be seen here. We called for a vote at the end of the debate, but we didn't have sufficient numbers to get it through.
The situation in Burma continues to be a cause of concern. We had an all-party debate on the matter in the Seanad on Thursday. My speech can be seen here
Friday saw the Drogs visit Tolka Park in the top-of-the table clash against Shamrock Rovers. There were about 700 of us in the visitors section. It's a long time since I've seen that level of support for an away league game. It was a cracking match which we won 2-0. The game next Friday in Drogheda could end up being the title-clincher, so it could be a great night to be in Drogheda.
