Cleary hits out at Fianna Fail’s Seanad representation

Fine Gael Councillor Michael Cleary, said that Fianna Fáil’s poor voting record in the Seanad highlights the hypocrisy of the Party’s campaign to keep the second House.

“These figures, show just how seriously Fianna Fáil Senators take their jobs. Fianna Fáil is the only Party campaigning to save the Seanad, and yet its Senators can’t even be bothered to turn up for one in every three votes in the second House. Voting is an essential part of the legislative process, so how can Fianna Fáil claim the Seanad plays an important role if its Senators aren’t even turning up to vote on key pieces of legislation.”
