TCDSU Council fails to reach quorum

The third Council of the year was held as a town-hall this evening

Trinity College Dublin Students’ Union (TCDSU) has failed to reach quorum for the second consecutive month. This means that quorum is held as a town-hall rather than a voting Council. The call for quorum was made prior to the beginning of Council.


As a result of this, no minutes were approved during the meeting. This included the sabbatical reports, of which TCDSU President Shane De Rís presented late.


It also meant that the Council could not vote on the election of a new TCDSU Sport Officer. This election was held as Roisín Harbison resigned from the position because of “time commitment and to focus on her studies”.


Two motions which were due to be heard this week also could not be voted on. These were to establish a new Coiste Gaeilge, and to create a crossover document for school and programme convenors, which would be completed before the second last Council of the year.
