The Houses of the Oireachtas hosted 37 transition year students this week and last week for virtual work experience.
Students from schools around the country, including Castletownbere and the Aran Islands, participated. The first week was delivered in English and the second in Irish.
The students learned about the Irish parliamentary system and about the types of work the Houses of the Oireachtas Service does to support the Dáil, Seanad and Committees. They met staff from the human resources section, press office, Library & Research Service (L&RS) and the Office of the Parliamentary Legal Advisers (OPLA).
