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

Timmy Dooley: I will be very brief. Yesterday we probed with one of our guests, who has an expertise in recruitment, the concern the committee had, and I am sure the Minister of State has too, that the office was without a director for a considerable period of time. The recruitment process seemed to be taking too long. I am sure the Minister of State has read, like others, in our national media...

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

Timmy Dooley: I know Stephen Rae was writing about it a number of months ago. It would be difficult to find the appropriate person with the salary scale set as it was. We understand that it was at about €89,000 or €90,000, something like the payscale of a principal officer. The evidence that we deduced yesterday was that we need to be looking at somewhere between €200,000 and...

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

Timmy Dooley: Does the chief technical officer role attract a higher remuneration package than that of the director?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Issues Affecting the Aviation Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (26 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: To follow on from Ms Mulholland's last point, this is about the workers in the company and the region. I could spend an hour giving out about Aer Lingus and its approach to Shannon over the years. I am deeply frustrated with its activities but that would be a pointless waste of the few minutes I have. I am equally frustrated with the Government, of which the party I am a member of is part....

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (25 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I welcome the decision of the 27 EU member states last night to launch fresh sanctions against the Lukashenko dictatorship in Belarus. The intervention of President Biden overnight in his comments of support for the European Union and the decision it has taken, and an indication that the United States will follow suit with increased sanctions on Belarus, is to be welcomed. I think most...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: National Cybersecurity: Discussion (25 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I will not use my full slot because I must speak in the Seanad. I thank all guests for their presentations, particularly our guest from the US. I was trying to work out which part of the US he is in and I recognise it is probably well past his bedtime. This is really helpful as the witnesses have identified that our IT infrastructure, particularly in the health service, is under attack....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: National Cybersecurity: Discussion (25 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank Mr. Larkin for that contribution. That is what I suspected and I thank him for his clarity. Mr. Larkin's contribution helps this committee in respect of our report and in trying to change that mindset. I do not think it is necessarily a negative reflection on anybody in the State sector, it is just the culture which has existed. Ms Carolan certainly identified that in respect of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I ask the Leader to organise a debate at the earliest opportunity on the forestry sector. With the passage of the Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2020 in October last year, we had all hoped it would address the inertia in the issuance of licences, especially for the felling of timber. Unfortunately, that has not happened. With the construction sector pretty much back in full swing,...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on Irish and UK Businesses: British Irish Chamber of Commerce (17 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I might add to the humour before I start. I was taken by my colleague, Senator Martin, stating that if the Prime Minister says it is possible, we should go for it. I take the view that if the PM says it is possible, it generally is not. I thank Mr. McGrane for his presentation and his work. Others have commented on it and it has been a source of great importance throughout this debate....

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on Irish and UK Businesses: British Irish Chamber of Commerce (17 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: The main question was on investment and certainty; the logistics piece was the other. Has there been any resolution of that issue?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Digital Green Certificate and Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank Mr. Bassato for his assistance to us. As he may be gathering from the various contributions, there is a deep frustration in this country, particularly within the aviation sector, at what is perceived as a failure by the Department of Transport to come forward with credible plans to assist in reopening our skies and aviation sector, recognising it plays such an important role in our...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Digital Green Certificate and Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Is the arrangement with the US reciprocal? Does Italy do the same or does the US have a requirement that essential passengers travelling from Italy to the US have to have testing done on its end?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Digital Green Certificate and Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: With an antigen test?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Digital Green Certificate and Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Does Mr. Bassato have data on any follow-up tests that were done on the US side? When the protocol changed in January that required passengers travelling from Italy to the US to take a Covid test prior to departure, was there a corresponding requirement for a validatory check on the US side? If so, can he provide any data in that regard?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Digital Green Certificate and Rapid Antigen Testing: Discussion (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I thank Mr. Bassato for his assistance to the committee.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Covid-19 Testing and Air Travel: Nuevo Ireland (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Dr. Kenny has given us some very good food for thought. As he knows, our biggest concern is getting the aviation sector back in motion again. It is really about providing something to our public health professionals, who seem to have rather undue influence on the Department of Transport because we are not seeing anything coming forward from the Department by way of a plan to get aviation...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Covid-19 Testing and Air Travel: Nuevo Ireland (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: When Mr. Lord says "including the equipment", is this a licensing arrangement or is it-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Covid-19 Testing and Air Travel: Nuevo Ireland (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: Nuevo Ireland is not offering a service whereby it puts in place the infrastructure at an airport and provides the service to the airport, airline or whatever. It is not a service provider but a technology-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Covid-19 Testing and Air Travel: Nuevo Ireland (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: I will give an example. If we had planes back in the air going through Shannon Airport in the morning and we were back to, say, 300-400 passengers per day, a fraction of what would have been going through, talk me through that scenario. How many personnel would be needed on site to get it done within an hour? Give us an idea of how that might work.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Covid-19 Testing and Air Travel: Nuevo Ireland (12 May 2021)

Timmy Dooley: So we are talking about €50 and a delay of about three hours. On the availability of the equipment, Mr. Lord said it was in the US. If Ireland was to move in this way as part of the introduction of the digital green cert and in conjunction with everything else that is happening across Europe, and if Mr. Lord was told that aviation would be beginning again by 1 July, how easy would it...
