Oireachtas Returns

After a gruelling holiday, Dail and Seanad Eireann resume in plenary session this afternoon to a workmanlike legislative programme and a Government coasting on a healthy economy and respectable opinion polls toward a general election in 16 months’ time. Leaders’ Questions kick off at 3.45pm followed by Questions to the Taoiseach and the Order of Business, which can be viewed live here.

Private Members’ Business in the Dail is on the EU Services Directive while the Upper House concerns itself with the pay and conditions of workers.

The Irish Times editorial previews the forthcoming session here. It all seems dull enough but, as we all know, events from absolutely nowhere have a habit of making it all little more interesting.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
