Sinn Fein Cllr Martin Browne has called for the immediate closure of the Dail bar.
Cllr Browne made his call after the improper conduct of members of the government during the debate on the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill.
He says this follows on from earlier in the year when more of the same was witnessed when the pizza phone prank was played on another deputy. “This type of behaviour is totally unacceptable and sends all the wrong signals to an electorate which is already disillusioned with the political establishment.” He has called it a crazy situation that our elected representatives can go drinking while supposed to be working. This would not happen in any other workplace, and Cllr Browne has called for the Dail bar to be subject to the same licensing laws as every other establishment.
