Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad

Before I call the Leader of the House on the Order of Business, I wish to announce for the information of Members that Senator Grace O'Sullivan has been elected to the European Parliament. Pursuant to the European Parliament Elections Acts of 1992 to 2019 the Senator will cease to be a Member of the Seanad when she takes her seat at the first sitting of the European Parliament, which is likely to be on 2 July 2019. Accordingly, a vacancy in the Oireachtas sub-panel of the agricultural panel will exist at that time.
