Written Answers — Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation: Enterprise Support Services Provision (5 Mar 2020)

Frank Feighan: 452. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation the measures being considered to assist small and microbusiness which may be forced to close in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak here; if her attention has been drawn to the fact that the insurance which covers many small and microbusinesses does not cover for the loss due to such an event; and if she will make a statement on the...

Written Answers — Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport: Aviation Industry (5 Mar 2020)

Frank Feighan: 1024. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his plans to address the barriers to the future growth of the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul industry here as identified by the National Civil Aviation Development Forum in 2016; his further plans to support the industry to grow into the future (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3171/20]

Written Answers — Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection: Treatment Benefit Scheme Eligibility (5 Mar 2020)

Frank Feighan: 1158. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the way in which a person (details supplied) qualified for the optical benefit and hearing aids under the treatment benefit scheme between the ages of 25 and 65 years, but at 66 years of age, with more than 260 PRSI contributions, cannot apply for the benefits, which are now required; and if she will make a statement on...

Taoiseach a Ainmniú - Nomination of Taoiseach (20 Feb 2020)

Frank Feighan: It is great to be back in the Dáil. I wish to thank the people of Sligo, Leitrim, south Donegal and north Roscommon for their great welcome and for electing me to Dáil Éireann. I come from Boyle, north County Roscommon, the location of a by-election in which George Noble Plunkett was elected. It was arguably the most important by-election in the country. He was an...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (18 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I wish yourself, a Leas-Chathaoirligh, and all my colleagues and the staff a happy Christmas and a prosperous new year. Senator Craughwell outlined the housing issue. It is an issue that needs to be dealt with. I was in Leitrim last Monday. The Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government, Deputy Eoghan Murphy, opened or turned the sod on 53 new homes in four different developments...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance and Funding of Football Association of Ireland: Discussion (18 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I thank the witnesses for coming in. It is hard to believe that, since last March, we would have arrived at this situation. I have a long involvement in junior soccer. I was treasurer of the Roscommon district league back in the 1980s, I was secretary of my local soccer club, I ran a double-decker bus to Germany in 1988 and I was at a celebration of junior football in Sligo County Council...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance and Funding of Football Association of Ireland: Discussion (18 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: The Minister stated: "While I have been advised that it would be unlawful to share the full details of the KOSI auditors’ findings, [which we understand] I can confirm that their opinion is that the FAI is not fit to handle public funds." He cannot say more, but that is probably the most damning statement made today. My heart goes out to the 200 staff and their families who are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance and Funding of Football Association of Ireland: Discussion (18 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I propose that we invite representatives of UEFA to a meeting of the committee.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Governance and Funding of Football Association of Ireland: Discussion (18 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: Yes.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I would also like to be associated with the messages of sympathy for the late Mr. Cormac Ó Braonáin. He was such a young man, at 19, to have made such an impression across so many different levels of society. It is a huge loss to the Labour Party and politics. It is amazing to think of the difference for good this young man could have made to our country or further afield if he...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (12 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: Today is a very big day for the UK but also for the island of Ireland. No matter what happens today, I hope the island of Ireland, particularly Northern Ireland, will not be forgotten because it was forgotten about when the Brexit referendum took place. We are now working twice as hard to undo the difficulties that have occurred since the referendum. I attended that screening of "Lost...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Anti-Social Behaviour (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I thank the Minister of State. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed to have to say that incidents of anti-social behaviour appear to be on the increase on many of our train routes, including the Sligo to Dublin line. Irish Rail management has admitted as much and conceded to The Irish Timeslate last year that, "[B]oth employee reports and customer feedback do confirm that there has been an...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Anti-Social Behaviour (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: Clearly the top priority for Irish Rail should be the protection, health and safety of its passengers. I look forward to Irish Rail continuing to place this at the very top of its agenda. There needs to be zero tolerance for persons carrying out anti-social behaviour on our rail network. I hope Irish Rail will take that into account. On another note, I raise a less serious issue which it...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I thank Senator Gavan for eloquently putting the case for the Irish in Britain. We in this country do not fully appreciate the extent of the Irish diaspora, especially in major UK cities such as Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, London and Birmingham. I know from my British-Irish links that many of these men and women are involved in the Labour Party and Scottish National Party, and some are...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: The threats I have mentioned must stop immediately.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Minority Sports and Women's Participation in Sport: Discussion. (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I apologise as I had to leave to go to a meeting. The witnesses are very welcome. We are very proud. I do not want to repeat what everybody else has said. I understand the witnesses spoke of an all-island hockey team. A little over two years ago, we were very anxious to have an all-island hockey team — it was a men's team — competing in the Commonwealth Games. We went a...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Minority Sports and Women's Participation in Sport: Discussion. (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: It is normally a Northern Ireland team that competes in the Commonwealth Games.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Minority Sports and Women's Participation in Sport: Discussion. (11 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I would not mind an answer.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: I also welcome the fact that the lottery Bill has been revised. I am aware that many people were very anxious that bingo would, in effect, be stopped. The Bill did not intend that and I am reassured that the law will remain the same for any bingo organisers that have prizes of less than €5,000. However, there is an issue - I understand where the Minister is coming from - given the...
