Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Accommodation Provision (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I thank the Minister of State for taking the time to deal with this important matter, which I am pleased to have the opportunity to raise. The standard of primary education provided by teachers in Carrick-on-Shannon is second to none. Children attend Scoil Mhuire from all social classes and the town has become home to children of many nationalities. However, it is very evident that we must...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Accommodation Provision (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I am delighted that the school has put in an application. Many very good things are happening in the education sector in my region and I thank the Minister of State for her recent visit to Sligo, where she announced €960,000 to support apprenticeship programmes at the Institute of Technology Sligo, which was very welcome. The Minister of State has visited Sligo on numerous occasions...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: Senator Mac Lochlainn raised an issue regarding Rockall, which is very worrying. All of this is happening because of Brexit. There is no reason to exclude Irish vessels from the waters around Rockall. As stated by the Taoiseach, the situation will change post-Brexit and we need to be very vigilant because 35% of our fish are caught in UK waters. Brexit brings all of these complications....

Seanad: Death of Former Member - Expressions of Sympathy (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: I welcome members of the Robb family to the Chamber - William, his wife, Niamh, and Martha. I did not know John Robb, but the fact that he was appointed to the Seanad in 1982, in probably the most difficult times in Northern Ireland, the island of Ireland and east-west relations, showed that Charlie Haughey saw the potential in a man of peace who had, as somebody else said, a Rolls Royce...

Seanad: Death of Former Member - Expressions of Sympathy (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: The Senator brings a voice which is very welcome. I did not know John Robb but I think he would have approved of what has happened in the Seanad in recent years. It is much improved. Senator Marshall was elected to this Seanad. He was the first directly elected unionist, he was not appointed by a Taoiseach, and he was elected by Sinn Féin votes and cross-party votes. That is...

Seanad: Death of Former Member - Expressions of Sympathy (13 Jun 2019)

Frank Feighan: -----and that is something following in the tradition of John Robb. Each and every one of us owes it to the memory of John Robb to do more on a cross-party basis, North-South and east-west, and the two islands will be much better places.

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

Frank Feighan: I welcome the approval of the drug Spinraza by the HSE. I pay tribute and congratulate our colleague, Senator Grace O'Sullivan, on her election to the European Parliament. I know she will be a wonderful MEP. Yesterday, I visited Westminster. Like the Taoiseach, I am concerned with the tone of the Conservative Party leadership race. Everywhere I went yesterday, I was asked about the...

Seanad: Fire Safety in Apartment Dwellings: Statements (30 May 2019)

Frank Feighan: When is it proposed to sit again?

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 May 2019)

Frank Feighan: Senator Craughwell graphically outlined the situation facing the Jadotville heroes. Many years ago I was one of the first Oireachtas Members to refer to their situation. A man by the name of James Tahaney from Ballyfarnon served in Jadotville and made us aware of the situation, but seven years on I am a little disappointed that many of their concerns have not been addressed. I hope they...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 May 2019)

Frank Feighan: I also attended the Ballymurphy inquest some months ago. Some of the stories coming from it were horrific. The stories that are coming out now are also of concern. It is one of various incidents and events in Northern Ireland from more than 50 years ago that one would hope it would be possible to shine a light on the truth. I hope the inquest will shine a light on the truth for the...
