« BackDáil planning to take almost ten weeks summer holidays

Dail ChamberThe Dáil is planning to take almost ten weeks in summer holidays.
TDs will adjourn for the summer in a week’s time, and won’t return until the 27th of September.
The slightly longer holiday is to allow an upgrade to the Dáil chamber – including a new sound system, and a new voting system which will allow TDs to officially abstain in votes for the first time.
The improvement works will cost around 690,000 euro.
