I move: "That Senator Paddy Burke be elected Leas-Chathaoirleach."
It gives me great pleasure to propose Senator Burke for the position of Leas-Chathaoirleach. He has been a Member of the House since 1993 and served with distinction as Leas-Chathaoirleach of the last Seanad. At its final sitting on 4 July, the high respect for and regard in which the Senator was held by his colleagues on all sides of the House was clear. Senator O'Toole described the Mayo sense of calm Senator Burke brought to the House in his role as Leas-Chathaoirleach. I do not know whether that is true.
