I am very proud of my efforts in the last Dáil as our spokesperson on Jobs, Workers Rights and Pay Equality and appreciate the trust that was placed in me by my colleagues and I am excited to commence a new role within our talented Dáil team, a role that should will be announced pretty soon.”Deputy Quinlivan believes the new Sinn Féin front bench team for the 33rd Dáil will be the most effective opposition in the history of the State.“Our front bench team is ready for this challenge. My party are eager to play a constructive role in this Dáil and are ready to hold each Minister to account on behalf of our constituents.“The Sinn Féin front bench is extremely strong. I am delighted that colleagues such as Pearse Doherty and Eoin O’Broin have remained in their roles. I am equally pleased that we have injected new voices to this team.“We believe we have a team that can make a strong contribution in this Dáil and I am eager to support my colleagues in this effort. This team is oozing with talent and I look forward to working with my colleagues closely as they tackle their specific briefs.”Quinlivan went onto describe representing the constituents of Limerick as an “honour”.”I am grateful they have demonstrated such confidence in myself and Sinn Féin. We received massive support in the February election, and we will be making every effort to achieve the change that this country and our city needs,” he concluded.

FILE – Erin Donalson/iStock(NEW YORK) — There are now 14 large uncontained wildfires burning in the West, not including smaller fires that broke out Monday.One of them, the Francis Fire in Davis County, Utah burned up to 200 acres and there were mandatory evacuations for residents in the area, though those have since been lifted since Monday evening.Tuesday, the cold front that caused all the gusty winds that helped to spread the fire in Utah will continue to move through the West, producing more gusty winds 20 to 60 mph.There are still Red Flag Warnings Tuesday morning and also high wind warnings from Utah to Wyoming.Elsewhere, a tropical disturbance in the western Gulf of Mexico will bring very heavy rain to eastern Texas from Houston to just east of Dallas.The heavy rain will begin Tuesday afternoon and the round of heavy rain will continue into Thursday.Some areas are expected to see up to 10 inches of rain, especially in Houston, Galveston and up to the Lufkin, Texas area where flash flooding is forecast later Tuesday.Meanwhile, Hurricane Humberto is moving away from the U.S. but will continue to bring high surf and dangerous rip currents from the Mid-Atlantic to the Carolinas and down to Florida where the waves could be as high as 11 feet.As Humberto moves east it will pass to the north of Bermuda brining gusty winds and heavy rain to the island where a Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for them.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
