Remembering Vaclav Havel with Dominic Hannigan,TD and Czech Ambassador
At the unveiling of the bust of former Czech President Vaclav Havel in Leinster House,

It was an honour to attent the unveiling of a bust in honour of the late Václav Havel, former President of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic, at 5 p.m. in Leinster House. This is an important event. Václav Havel, of course, was a real figurehead for democracy and democratic values across Central Europe, but also internationally. It is fitting that we are unveiling this memorial. I have been involved somewhat in the plans to unveil it and as somebody with Czech-Irish heritage, I am glad that we will have this bust in place in Leinster House from this afternoon.
