23/01/2024 | 20:17:01 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) The Invasion of Israel by Hamas, all the atrocities torture, rape and killings are totally unforgivable. There are no words of mine, no adjectives strong enough to condemn what Hamas a terrorist organisation has done to innocent civilians for no other reason other than being a jew. I listened to my colleague from Israel and I feel her pain when she spoke of what has been done to innocent civilians Sadly I don’t see pain for the innocent... 23/06/2023 | 12:14:07 Thank you, Madam President.

What's working well, what can be improved and indeed if there's something that needs to be discontinued. I thank the rapporteur for doing just that with an initiative which was introduced 13 years ago, Partner for Democracy. This status aims at developing cooperation with parliaments of non... 25/04/2023 | 16:29:44 Thank you, Mister President. As we approach the fourth summit in our 73-year history and the first in 18 years, many have asked questions as to are these frequent enough to ensure, as a body, we remain fit for purpose and relevant to the citizens we are elected to serve and relevant to address the challenges of today? I think what is more important now is to ensure that this summit is a success and we are very proud of the role the Irish have played in ensuring this summit happened and...
