The Seanad and the Strike

21st November, 2009

The Seanad will be closed on Tuesday due to the strike. This is despite the fact that the Dail will be open. I tried to raise this at close of business on Thursday but wasn’t allowed to.

This just adds to the perception of the Seanad as a less than serious part of the Oireachtas. Could the chamber be kept open for at least an Order of Business?

And people wonder why we want a referendum on it’s future!
