Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Sustainable Mobility Policy: Department of Transport (13 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I welcome Mr. Spratt and thank him for the work he does on behalf of us all. To broaden the debate a little, when it comes to climate change there is pretty widespread acceptance that it is an important feature of life and will be important moving into the future. While people have bought into the concept of climate change and the necessity to change, most believe somebody else's area needs...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Sustainable Mobility Policy: Department of Transport (13 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: We have always talked about the way that the Government works. It is departmental and sometimes there is a silo mentality for all sorts of reasons, some of which are good. There is an opportunity for the Department to get involved in the area of school transport. Those of us around this table who represent rural areas spend most of August, September and October each year arguing with the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Sustainable Mobility Policy: Department of Transport (13 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Yes.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Shannon Group: Chairperson Designate (7 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: As with previous speakers, I offer a warm welcome to Pádraig Ó Céidigh as the incoming chairperson of Shannon Airport. We should be particularly thankful that Mr. Ó Céidigh has chosen to put himself forward for this role. With his immense experience, undoubted ability and clear understanding of the needs of the region, he is the ideal candidate for the very...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Shannon Group: Chairperson Designate (7 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Would Mr. Ó Céidigh consider arranging a town-hall meeting with the workers when time permits. Obviously he has to get a feel for the new position first but it would be good to have a listening exercise with workers. There has been a gap over the years between workers and the board. I know Mr. Ó Céidigh is not directly responsible for staff but there would be no harm...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Shannon Group: Chairperson Designate (7 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I agree.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Shannon Group: Chairperson Designate (7 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: The Deputy might not be correct in that.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Shannon Group: Chairperson Designate (7 Oct 2021)

Timmy Dooley: On that point, there is precedent in a number of areas where, on occasion, a State board, through the decision of a Minister or the Government, has upgraded the position of chair to that of executive chair for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it might be based on the departure of management, which is not the case in this instance. We have a fantastic CEO but the scale of the challenge in...

Seanad: Air Navigation and Transport Bill 2020: Second Stage (28 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I welcome the Minister of State to the House to discuss this legislation. At the outset, I want to be associated with the remarks on and recognition of the appointment of Pádraig Ó Céidigh as chairman of the Shannon Group. I recognise he is a man of immense skills and wisdom, somebody who has a vast amount of experience in the aviation sector. In addition he is a west of...

Seanad: Air Navigation and Transport Bill 2020: Second Stage (28 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the Acting Chairperson for his direction and respectful smile when it was time for me to conclude.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Energy Charter Treaty, Energy Security, Liquefied Natural Gas and Data Centres: Discussion (28 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I will take up what Dr. Bresnihan said about the moratorium. I can understand where he is coming from but the reality is climate change and carbon emissions are global in nature. From his knowledge, will he point us in the direction of some other region of the globe that would be better suited to data centres? It is okay to say "let us not do it" or "not in our backyard right now", but we...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Energy Charter Treaty, Energy Security, Liquefied Natural Gas and Data Centres: Discussion (28 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I will take issue with that. I would have thought that if Ireland is to take a lead, it would be in greening our generation of energy. We are doing that with the ambition the ESB put forward to capture offshore wind and it plays into what Dr. Carton said about the generation of hydrogen at the old Moneypoint facility. That is what I would like to see us do. Whether we are a laggard or a...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Hear, hear.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (22 Sep 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Along with others I join in expressing sympathy to Senator Hoey on the passing of her father. I want to raise two issues. The first is the spiralling cost of oil and gas fuel for aviation, transport and home heating. It is having a significant impact on economic activity and it will certainly lead to fuel poverty. This is happening at a time we have, rightly, adopted carbon pricing. The...

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Motion (16 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I join with others in complimenting the Minister, as I have done on a number of occasions, for his tenacity and his ability to chart out a course that needed to be taken. He has been dogged in his approach. He has had electoral success and failure along the way, but it never thwarted his vision or his ambition to achieve it. When he started out on that relatively lonely journey, he and...

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Motion (16 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I will wrap up. There will be difficulties. It will be the job of all of us to work with stakeholders. There is difficulty within the farming sector, make no bones about that. The people I talk to are up for the challenge and they are prepared to do the business, but they will need significant financial support. I know the Minister will be there to ensure and to support the just...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Implementation of the EU Digital Covid Certificate: Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (14 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: It is no problem whatsoever that a good man like Senator Buttimer went before me. I thank the Minister of State for the clarity he has provided. I agree with others that he has a good handle on what can be a complex matter if it is not addressed quickly. I mention the scenario where somebody's name appears incorrectly based on his or her own mistake; a case in point being my own. I am...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Implementation of the EU Digital Covid Certificate: Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (14 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Okay. The answer to that is, for the moment, maybe. On the next one, there is quite a number of Irish citizens who either work or reside in the UK, or temporarily worked or resided in the UK, and would have been vaccinated there. Obviously, the UK is outside the European Union now. I do not know what their role is in terms of providing information around the digital Covid certificate. Do...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Implementation of the EU Digital Covid Certificate: Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (14 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I welcome that. On the management or maintenance of the certificate, there is a number of apps out there currently which allow you to scan the code, either from your screen or from your printout, and it will upload it into the wallet app on your iPhone. I have put the link to that app up on Facebook and on Twitter.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Implementation of the EU Digital Covid Certificate: Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (14 Jul 2021)

Timmy Dooley: That is great. I note Ryanair has a function. The Minister of State mentioned that Aer Lingus was looking at doing something. I note that Ryanair currently has a function which allows you to upload the image of your clear PCR test, as it is up until now, that allows you to travel. Anything the Minister of State can do with airlines to encourage them to do that would be helpful. That is...
