Pupils visit the Oireachtas
CHILDREN from 4th, 5th and 6th class at Powerscourt National School paid a visit to Leinster House last week.
Minister Simon Harris organised the tour for the students who were joined by parents and teachers from the school.
‘It is hugely important that children in our schools understand how the Irish parliamentary system functions and to see their public representatives at work,’ said Minister Harris after the visit.
He was speaking in the Seanad on the Finance Bill and said he was pleased that Powerscourt got to watch the proceedings.
‘ This is a very significant Bill for our country,’ said Simon.
