Prohibition of Above-cost Ticket Touting Bill 2017: Second Stage (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Mick Wallace: While I find the legislation disappointing, I was at great pains to explain that I was as fond of overpaying for tickets as anyone else. In fact, I absolutely hate paying above the odds. I remember being outside the old Lansdowne Road stadium in the early 1980s when tickets were being sold at an awful price and I could not afford to buy them. I got a fellow to give me a leg up onto the...

Prohibition of Above-cost Ticket Touting Bill 2017: Second Stage (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Clare Daly: Amusing as Deputy Wallace's stories are, it is regrettable that we have to spend time dealing with a useless piece of what I call "soundbite legislation". I am getting sick at the number of times we have had to deal with such legislation. I am awaiting the introduction of a Bill dealing with apple pie, something to which no one could possibly object but which would not bring apple pie to...

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Catherine Byrne: I might say a few words before reading the response from the Minister's office. I thank Deputies Burton, Maureen O'Sullivan, O'Loughlin, Martin Kenny and Wallace. I am sorry if I left anybody out. We all know about the unbelievable cruelty that happened in this country in the past and is probably still happening in some places and the loss of those children's lives and the loss for the...

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Mick Wallace: Retraumatisation is a conscious or unconscious reminder of past trauma that results in a re-experiencing of the initial trauma event. It can be triggered by a situation, an attitude or expression, or by certain environments that replicate the dynamics and the loss of power, control and safety of the original trauma. Not being believed or listened to is another factor in trauma and retrauma....

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Fiona O'Loughlin: My party, Fianna Fáil, welcomed the commission and its establishment as a vital recognition of the considerable harm that mothers and their children experienced in mother and baby homes throughout the country. We saw the commission as a means to bring justice to the victims of these homes. However, while the commission was established in February 2015, which was four years ago this...

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Martin Kenny: The issue is close to me because I know a number of women who were residents of the homes and who raised various issues with me. Their lives, as well as those of their families and others around them, were traumatised and they feel aggrieved that the situation has been pushed back again. They had expected and looked forward to the conclusion of the issue, not now but sooner. In the case of...

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Joan Burton: Yes, I will. Where is the Minister's radicalism gone that she is leaving these thousands of people in no man's land? The commission will proceed; it will now be another year before it reports. Half the people affected will be dead before it ever does so.

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Maureen O'Sullivan: Going back to where we are to date, the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes and Certain Related Matters was established by the Government in February 2015 to provide a full account of what happened to women and children in those homes. Since then, we have had four interim reports: two in 2016, one in 2017 and one in 2018. The final report was due on 17 February last, but...

Fourth Interim Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (Resumed) (21 Feb 2019)

Joan Burton: I am glad that the Minister of State at the Department of Health, Deputy Catherine Byrne, is present as she has a long-standing interest in this issue and much detailed knowledge of it. There is a great deal of unhappiness at the fact that there is a further delay. Much of the delay is probably inevitable, but arrangements should be made to deal with a number of issues which I believe...
