She added, “There is a huge interest right across Ireland in what’s happening in Palestine, and how we as a small country can help, and it is so important that this is represented in the Oireachtas.”
“I Know from talking to people in the West Bank and Gaza that Palestinians need support from the international community and particularly from European countries, so now more than ever that’s what we will be working for,” she said.
