Historic British Irish Parliamentary Assembly plenary to take place in Seanad Chamber - 14th-15th May

Added 3-May-2012

The 44th plenary of the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly will take place in the Seanad Chamber, Leinster House, Dublin from Monday 14th – Tuesday 15th May 2012.

This is the first occasion on which Seanad Eireann, the upper house of the Irish parliament, has been the venue for a plenary of the Assembly. The plenary will take place almost 12 months following the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Ireland last May and will seek to build upon the positive relationships generated at that time.

An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, will address the Assembly from the Seanad on Monday morning on the theme of the plenary “Making business easier between Britain and Ireland.” Other guest speakers will include senior business people from the manufacturing, food, and agrifood sectors.

There will also be a specific focus on health co-operation and joint services between Britain and Ireland, with an address from the Minister for Health, James Reilly TD.

A full agenda for the plenary will be circulated in due course.

Media outlets are welcome to attend or send a representative to the plenary. Those attending are requested to contact Ronan Farren, Q4 Public Relations (+353 1 475 1444 / ronan@q4pr.ie), for further information, accreditation and to make the necessary arrangements.
