Cllr Mick Roche called on fellow members to call for the immediate release of Irish citizen Ibrahim Halawa who is still awaiting trial in Egypt.
Cllr Roche asked his colleagues to look 'deep into their hearts' and encourage An Taoiseach Enda Kenny to write to the Egyptian embassy to convey our views.
He was strongly supported by Cllr Deirdre Wadding, who pleaded with all to support the cause.
The motion received unanimous support.
