Ulster Teachers’ Union

Visit to Leinster House

17th Aug 2015
Visit to Leinster House

The UTU is indebted to a former President of the Teachers’ Union of Ireland, Senator Gerard Craughwell, for his invitation to his colleagues in UTU to visit Leinster House, Dublin, home of the Irish Government chambers - Dail Eirann and the Seanad.

Senator Craughwell – or Gerry as we know him better – welcomed Past Presidents, Stephen McCord and Diane Nugent, Ex-President, Sandra Brown, President, Julie Orr and General Secretary, Avril Hall-Callaghan to Leinster House on 17th August where he, in the company of TUI General Secretary John MacGabhan, provided a guided tour of the building including not only some very interesting historical references but also an explanation of how the government in the Republic of Ireland operates.
