Social Welfare Bill, 1990: Second Stage.

Unfortunately, Deputy Byrne's opening comments amounted to a dirty, nasty and cheap but a typical personalised attack on the Taoiseach. There is no need for me to set out the Taoiseach's record on so...More Button

In the past couple of years, having watched the various stages of the growth and development of the democratic process of Deputy Byrne's party and their policies, I got the impression that that policy...More Button

If we really want to trade insults and talk of the privileged few in the way he did, I would point, for instance, to one of his own colleagues here who got massive amounts of tax payers' money by way ...More Button
