Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank Dr. Holohan for his presentation. He gave us some light at the end of a long tunnel when he spoke about the free movement of people to the greatest extent possible within the next number of months. I wish to discuss the pilot study. How long would it take to do to the standard NPHET expects?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Okay.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I take Professor Nolan's point, but will he comment on how other countries, particularly those in Europe, seem to be satisfied with antigen testing? We heard from a representative from one of the airports in Rome that had a bilateral arrangement with the United States so there was free movement of passengers, on that particular route, which was based on antigen testing. Are the witnesses...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I agree wholeheartedly with what has been said but surely the question has changed significantly in the past six months if one works on the basis of risk analysis. Let us consider the level of vaccination and the very significant reduction in death and hospitalisation. Surely the question now is within reason, how do we get people back travelling as safely as possible, while recognising...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Is Dr. Holohan saying that 19 July is more an operational matter than a response based on risk?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (Resumed) (16 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Was that not necessarily a recommendation made by NPHET?

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Aviation Industry (15 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: As the Minister of State knows, the aviation sector has been decimated by Covid-19. While the roll-out of the vaccine is making wonderful progress and, for most people, the end of the pandemic is in sight, unfortunately, it is not so for the aviation sector. Its global foundations have been rocked to the core. The sector, quite frankly, feels abandoned by this Government. Towards the end...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Aviation Industry (15 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Unfortunately, key stakeholders - the airlines and airports - do not believe the Government has engaged in a manner that would help to give confidence to the sector to begin the process of recovery. The Minister of State rightly identified that it will take a number of years, but we have got to start somewhere. That level of discussion and negotiation needs to begin now. As much certainty...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Trade and Co-operation Agreement, Northern Ireland Protocol, and EU-UK Relationships post Brexit: Commissioner Mairead McGuinness (15 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I, too, want to be associated with the congratulations to the Commissioner and wish her well at this difficult time. If the UK continues to refuse the alignment with the animal and plant standards, the SPS standards that we have talked about, has any consideration been given to a plan B at EU level? The Commissioner might share her thoughts on a proposal that emanated yesterday or the day...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Trade and Co-operation Agreement, Northern Ireland Protocol, and EU-UK Relationships post Brexit: Commissioner Mairead McGuinness (15 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the Commissioner.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Last Friday, we learned of the liquidation of Stobart Air with more than 420 job losses as well as the potential loss of air connectivity on the island and between Ireland and the UK. Media reports over the weekend suggest that a strategic review is under way at Lufthansa Technik in Shannon and related companies. Approximately 500 people work there and there is real concern as to what the...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on the Food and Drink Industry: Discussion (14 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the witnesses for the three presentations. They are certainly helpful to us. I have a couple of points for Dr. Johnston. He referred to the Northern Ireland protocol and said it was not perfect. Is there anything else he would like to say about the protocol or any aspect of it we might address? While it might not directly relate to the subject matter today, is there anything...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: The Viability of and Opportunities for the Post Office Network: An Post (9 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank Mr. McRedmond and Ms Byrne for their presentation. I join with others in expressing my thanks to the staff across the country, both at the head office and working in post offices and on the ground, who did a sterling job during the pandemic. I also recognise the role of Mr. McRedmond and his staff in stabilising the company over the last number of years. I recall when the company...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: The Viability of and Opportunities for the Post Office Network: An Post (9 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: While I accept what Mr. McRedmond has said about it being hard fought for, there is a necessity for An Post to look at its network again in light of the learnings from Covid. Consider a village such as Broadford. We are working very hard to get a sewerage scheme into the village and builders are again seeing opportunities to build homes for people in and around the village. It is on the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: The Viability of and Opportunities for the Post Office Network: An Post (9 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I accept that point but there can be a domino effect. I am concentrating on Broadford because it is right next door to me and I know it well. If the people getting their social welfare in Broadford go to any of the other locations, they take with them their bit of business as well. It can have an impact on shops so it is not just about the postmaster but the businesses around that post...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Rapid Antigen Testing for Aviation and Travel Sectors: Discussion (9 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the guests for their continued engagement with the committee. I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Niamh Power when she visited as part of the Irish Air Line Pilots Association, IALPA, delegation recently. We are united as a committee at this stage in recognising the importance of antigen testing in terms of getting the free movement of people. Everything the witnesses have...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Jun 2021)

Timmy Dooley: It is well recognised now that aviation globally has probably been one of the sectors most affected by the pandemic because of restrictions implemented by governments, essential as they were at the time. Recovery is in sight now, however. Passenger numbers week on week have started to recover, albeit slowly and from a low base. Projections now suggest passenger traffic will take until 2024...

Seanad: Search and Rescue System: Motion (28 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I move amendment No. 1: (a) To delete references to “Department of Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport” and “DCACNT” in each place where it occurs and substitute “Department of Transport” in each such place; (b) To delete all words from and including “believes that:” and substitute the following: “notes in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: National Cybersecurity: Discussion (Resumed) (26 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the Minister of State for his presentation. He will rightly understand that, as politicians, we all share the same objective. It is, in the first instance, to try to understand insofar as we can, what vulnerabilities existed that we might have protected against and then what we can do, from a legislative perspective, to put ourselves front and centre in the defence against the next...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: National Cybersecurity: Discussion (Resumed) (26 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank the Minister of State-----
