Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (19 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: What I am about to say is in the public domain. The article, about a young girl who was bullied and murdered, is traumatising and moving. I pay tribute to An Garda Síochána, as well as to the families of both Ana Kriégel and the boys involved. This case has shaken this country. I do not know what else to say, but everybody should read Conor Gallagher's respectful piece...

Seanad: Adoption, Information and Tracing: Statements (19 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I welcome the Minister to the House to discuss this important Bill. I also feel that the agreement to allow the deferral of the Committee Stage of the Adoption (Information and Tracing) Bill 2016 today is very welcome. It shows that there is cross-party support.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Advancing the Low-Carbon Transition in Irish Transport: Discussion (19 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I like Dr. Moore's views on the forum for peer learning for villages, towns and cities. We have been quite lazy. Certainly local authorities have been quite lazy.

We are talking about cities and it is great to see so many cyclists in Dublin. I live...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna (Atógáil) - Commencement Matters (Resumed): Hospitals Building Programme (18 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I am delighted that a planning application could be lodged by late 2019. I understand that these applications take time but it must be ensure that the significant development under the auspices of the National Rehabilitation Hospital will be located in Roscommon. When it becomes operational, it will lead to 50 jobs. That means there will be more than 500 jobs in Roscommon University...

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

Frank Feighan: I, too, extend my sympathy to the Cathaoirleach on the death of his sister and to Senator Coughlan on the death of his mother. When such events occur, we realise the insignificance of the other things about which we worry in life. Last week I told the House that I was to travel to Westminster and mentioned Rory Stewart, a candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party. Most...

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