[7940/97]

Minister for Social Welfare (Proinsias De Rossa): Information on Prionsias De Rossa  Zoom on Prionsias De Rossa  I did not undertake any official duties on St. Patrick's Day this year. Accordingly, no costs related to St. Patrick's Day arise.

For most of the St. Patrick's Day period, i.e. from 14-16 March, I was participating in an EU Informal Council on Social Affairs, held in Rotterdam.

On St. Patrick's Day the Minister of State, Deputy Durkan, reviewed parades in Maynooth and Kilcock, County Kildare. No costs arise from this.
