‘Media has key role in Irish politics’

The media has played a crucial role in advancing the cause of the Oireachtas over the past 100 years, Ceann Comhairle Sean O Fearghail has said.

As the host of a dinner in honour of members of the Oireachtas Press Gallery as part of the Dail’s centenary, Mr O Fearghail said the press coverage of the first Dail in 1919 was central to the international recognition of the assembly.

He said political journalists were at the cutting edge of the profession, setting the national agenda on a daily basis.
