Visit of German Delegation

Before we proceed with business, I wish on my own behalf and on behalf of Dáil Éireann to offer a céad míle fáilte, a most sincere welcome, to a delegation from the German Bundestag composed of members of the German Ireland Parliamentary Friendship Group. Our friends are led by Mr. Stephan Albani, MP, chairman of the group. Also joining them is Her Excellency, the German ambassador to Ireland. I thank Senator Craughwell, convener on the Irish side, for his assistance with the visit. The delegation is most welcome to Leinster House. I hope that their visit will be useful and of mutual benefit. Tá fáilte romhaibh.
