Visit of Croatian Delegation

Before proceeding with Leaders' Questions I wish, on my own behalf and on behalf of the Members of the Dáil to offer a céad míle fáilte - a most sincere and warm welcome - to a great friend of Ireland, Her Excellency Marija Pejinovi-Buri, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia. The Deputy Prime Minister is joined by the Croatian ambassador to Ireland, who is well known to us, Mr. Ivan Mašina, and indeed by the Irish ambassador to Croatia, Ms Olive Hempenstall.

The Deputy Prime Minister is welcome to Dáil Éireann, and I hope that she finds her visit useful and informative.
