    Just heard the dail is now in a two week recess.

    Why?

    Theres a few important things going on at the moment that could do with being discussed, not least the ending of the eviction ban- however all TD’s are on holidays, so how come they have holidays for two weeks?

    Easter

    Plus, they're not on holidays (necessarily) - they're just not attending Dáil sittings.

    Eviction ban is gone, debates are done - it won't be discussed in the chamber again.

    There has always been an Easter recess. TDs generally use the recesses to actually do constituency work rather than go on holiday.

    Would they not do constituency work aswell as dail work anyway?

    Seems like tds get a lot of dail holidays?

    Bi-location isn't a skill many people have managed.

    They're on a 52 week recess.

    Every year.
