National Anthem Bill 2019: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to confirm that the choral refrain, with or without the lyrics, of "Amhrán na bhFiann" or, in the English Language, "The Soldier's Song" is and continues to be the National Anthem; to provide for a version of the National Anthem in the Irish Sign Language; to confirm that the Presidential Salute is and continues to be the music of the first 4 bars, followed by the last 4 bars, of the National Anthem; and to provide for other related matters.

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Tuesday.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 29 January 2019.
