‘A bit of history’ as Irish lawmaker brings baby to Parliament

History was made in the Irish parliament in Dublin on September 21, according to its speaker, when lawmaker Violet-Anne Wynne became the first TD (as MPs are known in Ireland) to bring her baby to the chamber. Sean O Fearghail, the speaker, or ceann comhairle, stopped to note, “we’re seeing a bit of history being made tonight” with Wynne returning from maternity leave with her new baby. “Baby Collins is the first real baby to join us here,” I joked.
