We heard from Deputy Rowlette, who represents Dublin University, a very extraordinary speech. I may say that extraordinary as that speech was, there is this much to be said about Deputy Rowlette that...More Button

Then I will not be responsible for the President not having time to reply. When he is replying I should like him to tell the House where Fianna Fáil really stands on this question, and what opinion t...More Button

I am not going to make any prophecies about the President. I should be a very rash man to do that. If I were to prophecy that he would adhere to the proposition that two and two make four I would be ...More Button
