Local TD Fergus O’Dowd is set to become the new chairman of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport.

He will replace the outgoing Kerry TD Brendan Griffin following a decision by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar yesterday.

In a statement on the matter, Deputy O’Dowd said he was delighted with his appointment to a committee which previously included local TDs Peter Fitzpatrick and Imelda Munster amongst its 11 members.

“I am delighted to have been appointed Chair of the Joint Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport,” said O’Dowd.

“I look forward to working with each individual committee member and will continue to ensure full transparency and accountability from all statutory bodies who are required to come before the Transport, Tourism and Sport Committee.

“I will meet with and support the groups and individuals and other professional and voluntary bodies who wish to bring important policy initiatives before the committee for debate and consideration.

“The committee advises on a wide range of legislative, social, economic and financial business and I will aim to ensure that every piece of legislation coming before the Committee is thoroughly examined and debated.”
