Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Cuisle has been providing a service to people from the length and breadth of this island. It is cherished and treasured by families I know and by individuals and their carers and loved ones over many years. These appeals are not only made on a constituency interest basis. The Tánaiste will know, perhaps even from his constituency, how important this is to every one of these families as the only dedicated holiday resort facility in this land for people with disabilities. I join in the appeal made by Deputies Naughten and Eugene Murphy today that in this final 24 hours on the eve of the proposed closure of Cuisle, the Tánaiste would take the initiative to ensure Government does not let this slip by. It would be devastating and it can be so easily resolved if the political will is there and if a willingness on the part of the IWA could be demonstrated.
