ARG Visit to Leinster House June 2024

The ARG Group were invited for a tour of Leinster House by Neasa Hourigan. The Group were greeted by 2 Oireachtas Guides who guided us through the full history of Leinster House and its historical ownership.

Included in the tour was a visit to the Oireachtas Viewing Gallery. The Guide explained to the Group where the elected Government seats are situated. He then showed the group where the Opposition seats are in relation to this.

The Group also visited the Seanad. An explanation of the rules and regulations of the Seanad was provided as well as its guiding principles. Our Guide also told the Group how members are elected to the Seanad.

The tour also included a viewing gallery of portraits of past Taoisigh. On a separate wall a selection of portraits of influential women have recently been included.

To finish the tour the Group were invited to a cup of tea in the Dail coffee shop by Neasa. A thoroughly enjoyable tour was had by all.
