Death of Member: Expression of Sympathy.

Cúis mhór bróin do chomhaltaí an Tí seo bás an Teachta Seán Ó Duinn an tseachtain seo caite — go raibh síocháin síorraí i láthair Dé aige. One of the outstanding and colourful personalities of Irish p...More Button

Nomination of Taoiseach.

I understand that the bells are still ringing on that side of the House. There must be some mis-understanding. We have no objection to all the doors being opened again.More Button

Ba mhaith liom m'fhíor-bhuíochas a ghabháil leis an Dáil as ucht mé d'ainmniú mar Taoiseach. I should like to express my sincere thanks to the Dáil for having nominated me to be Taoiseach. At this st...More Button

Appointment of Taoiseach.

B'áil liom cead a chur in iúl, mar eolas don Dáil, gur chuir mé m'ainmniú chun bheith i mo Thaoiseach in iúl don Uachtarán agus gur cheap sé mé dá réir. I beg leave to state for the information of the...More Button

What, again?More Button

What is an intellectual?More Button

This is the standard that is going to be set for the future?More Button

The Deputy should slow down a little bit. He is too fast. He will be told that in time.More Button

It would be better for the Deputy himself.More Button

He is trying to heal the breach.More Button

On 18th June, for example.More Button

Late Sitting.

I move: That the Dáil sit later than 8.30 p.m. to-day and that the hour at which business is to be interrupted be 12 midnight. In moving this motion I think I would be interpreting the feeling of the ...More Button

We can rise in half an hour if necessary. The motion is there in case we did not finish at 10.30 p.m.More Button

Apparently, but could I move again to sit later than 12 midnight?More Button

We can sit tomorrow if that is necessary and I can withdraw my motion.More Button

Deputy FitzGerald ought not to be too facetious at this stage of his existence, because other people can be, too.More Button

Our Deputies have not been speaking on this motion and we are anxious that this debate be concluded this evening so that a Government can be appointed. I take it it is the desire of the majority that...More Button

Yes. I think we ought to be able to accommodate those who wish to speak.More Button

That is a matter for agreement between the Whips. I am prepared to finish any time the Deputies opposite will agree with me.More Button

Yes. Question put and agreed to.More Button

Nomination of Members of Government (Resumed).

That I did not do it myself on occasion.More Button

The election is over.More Button

The Deputy is supposed to talk about them and not to them.More Button

The Deputy should not talk about old age pensions.More Button

Give us a couple more?More Button

So-called intellectual superiority. Is that it?More Button

Why did the Deputy not tell his leader that?More Button

I understood I was to get in after Deputy Clinton. Another Deputy got up after Deputy Clinton.More Button

That is not what the note contained.More Button

I never said it.More Button

This has been an unduly drawn-out debate on this motion which is a motion for the approval of the members of the Government as nominated by me. Before my Party came into the House today I advised them...More Button

Some Deputies objected to the individual Ministers whom I had nominated for appointment. They objected on the grounds that they were arrogant and that they had failed in their administration. I assur...More Button

Reference was made to milk prices. The parties opposite had everything in their favour. They suggested that, because of some failure of these Opposition parties to get together to suggest to the peo...More Button

It was suggested we won this election by default. Let me repeat again. We fought the election on the basis of our record of progress particularly over the last ten years. We fought it on the basis ...More Button

I do so readily.More Button

Whether a person is an intellectual or not often means that one has not had the advantage of going to a university or, having gone to a university, has not had the means or facility of taking a second...More Button
