Use Of The Convention Centre To Host Dáil Proceedings To Cost €160,000 Per Sitting.

: 04/08/2020 - 18:03

The use of Dublin’s Convention Centre to host the Dáil is going to cost around 160,000 euro for a single sitting.

The venue has been chosen to allow all 160 TDs to meet to elect a Taoiseach while maintaining social distancing.

Despite there being no hire fee for the venue it’s estimated each Dáil sitting there will cost 50,000 euro.

That’s on top of once off set-up fees of 110,000 to adapt the auditorium for proper use as a parliamentary chamber, including the installation of microphones.
