Joint Committee on the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Irish Speaking Community: Tuairimí an Aosa Óg: Plé (18 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Chaill mise cuid den mhéid a bhí le rá. Tá dhá cheist agam a bhaineann le muintir Chonamara. Tá caint ar an teicneolaíocht. Níl an oiread sin dochar sa teicneolaíocht má ghintear an leictreachas go nádúrtha. Cén bharúil atá ag na scoláirí maidir leis an moladh seo atá ann muilte gaoithe a chur amach...

Éamon Ó Cuív: Chuir mé spéis sa mhéid a bhí le rá ag na finnéithe maidir leis an nGarda. Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil gardaí le taithí as Conamara ag iarraidh filleadh ar Chonamara agus níl an ceannfort san áit ina bhfuil siad sásta scaoileadh leo. Thiocfainn leis na finnéithe go bhfuil sé in am do Choimisinéir An Gharda...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Policy Issues for Carers: Family Carers Ireland (18 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I listened with great care to what the witnesses said. I think we all know the destination to which we want to get. The question for us as politicians working in the system we work in is how to get to that destination. There are two very simple wins we should ask for straight out, one of which being that carer's allowance should not be taxable. The taxation system on social welfare...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Policy Issues for Carers: Family Carers Ireland (18 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: Can I just say that I agree with the long game? However, what I think will happen is that a commission, expert body or whatever else will get a report. We are talking a minimum of two, three or four years down the road. I have been here long enough to know that. In the meantime, the house is burning down and the pressure is on the carers. We need a dual strategy.

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (11 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: In the previous Dáil, the Wildlife (Amendment) Bill, which gives effect to a review of natural heritage areas, NHAs, carried out in 2014, passed the Dáil and the Seanad and then came back to the Dáil with Seanad amendments. The general election intervened, however. I note that the Wildlife (Amendment) Bill is on the list of other Bills, that is, the Bills in never-never land....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Tús Initiative and the Rural Social Scheme: Discussion (11 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I thank the witnesses for the submission. I will try to be brief.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: Tús Initiative and the Rural Social Scheme: Discussion (11 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: On the participants in the scheme, I have never agreed with the six-year rule. I am interested to hear that the witnesses favour abolishing it.

That means that anybody with a partner or children is getting exactly €25 a week for 19.5 hours work. They must be the...
