Business of Seanad

Before I move to the next speaker, I welcome to the House Mr. Bruce Knotts and his husband, Issac Humphrey, who are seated in the Visitors Gallery.

Mr. Knotts is director of the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office. He was born in California. Among other things, he has ably represented many people who are concerned about climate change. He has just come back from the long Poland conference. He is a tireless campaigner against homophobia throughout the world, and it is our pleasure to acknowledge the work he has done and to recognise him and his husband. He is most welcome and I hope he will have an enjoyable stay in our little nation.
