On Thursday 5th July, my legislation in relation to the meeting of the First Dáil and the Declaration of Independence on 21st January 1919 completed it’s passage through Seanad Éireann.

Senator Keith Swanick Minister Josepha Madigan - Declaration of Independence Day Bill

Thanks to Minister Josepha Madigan and all of my Seanad colleagues for passing all stages of the Declaration of Independence Day Bill. The 21st of January 1919 was one of the most momentous days in Irelands history and the legislation now progresses to Dáil Éireann for it’s completion.
