Covid-19 (Special Educational Needs Provision): Statements (21 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: It is probably not often that I would admit I have little to say as Deputy Ó Cuív encapsulated exactly my views on this matter. If everything is stripped away, the issues involved are about public health for both the staff and students with special needs and education for people with special needs. I know parents and students with special needs in Limerick. What they have gone...

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (21 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: The big issue with the vaccine now is supply. Will the Minister indicate the level of supply coming into Ireland over the next month, by week and company?

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (21 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: For the public, is the Minister saying that we are getting 40,000 of Pfizer, there will be 40,000 next week and 40,000 thereafter? If approved, what type of level will the first order be from AstraZeneca?

Covid-19 Vaccination Programme: Statements (21 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: UHL is in my area of the mid-west. It has only received 3,400 vaccines to date. The South/South-West Hospital Group appears to have to administer over 19,000. When the next roll out comes, the mid-west share must balance that. Dentists are front-line workers. Dentists have been calling me and they are petrified about Covid. They deal with patients everyday and they do not know...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Broadband Plan (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I ask the Minister to deal with the specific questions. Would the Minister support Eir and NBI coming together to expedite the roll-out of fibre broadband in the amber areas that are alongside blue areas where Eir has already rolled out broadband? People are looking over the ditch to their neighbours who have broadband and they do not, and they could be waiting two or three years. Can...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Broadband Plan (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I thank the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Eamon Ryan, for coming in and taking this debate. The national broadband plan is very significant. It is the rural electrification of its time. Broadband is as important in this modern age as electricity was decades ago. I refer to high-quality fibre broadband in particular because of its speed and the amount of...

Covid-19 (Education): Statements (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I have a question for the Minister, Deputy Foley. The concern with the leaving certificate is certainty for students, who are the most important of all. What is the Minister's personal view, as she ultimately makes the decision? Does she want a written leaving certificate - the normal leaving cert - or is she looking at predicted grades or a hybrid model? Students are entitled to and need...

Covid-19 (Education): Statements (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I have very little time.

Covid-19 (Education): Statements (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I have a very quick question for the Minister of State, Deputy Madigan. I very much welcome the decision made today on special needs schools and special classes opening on 21 January, which is next Thursday. Have parents been informed? If not, when will they be informed? Have the schools been informed? What is the process by which parents will learn, in terms of communication with...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: I wish to raise two issues. Could the Tánaiste give an update on the discussions that have taken place between the Ministers, the Department of the Education, the unions and the schools on special needs schools and classes recommencing? It is a major issue on the ground for parents in Limerick and it is something on which he might provide an update. I note the Government's...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (14 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: GPs in Cork have been given their vaccinations but not in Limerick. Dentists in other areas such as Sligo have been given the vaccine. I ask the Tánaiste for a commitment to prioritising those areas.

Covid-19 (Health): Statements and Questions and Answers (13 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: On the roll-out of vaccines to GP practices, a number of GPs from my constituency in Limerick have contacted me in recent days. I have been in contact with the Minister's office. GPs in Cork and Kerry have got the vaccine, as have many GPs in Dublin. There appears to be significant inconsistency in the roll-out of vaccines to GPs. Who is responsible for the roll-out of vaccines to GPs?...

Covid-19 (Health): Statements and Questions and Answers (13 Jan 2021)

Kieran O'Donnell: The Minister has not answered my question. How can GPs in Cork all be vaccinated out of the South Infirmary and Bantry and people in nursing homes be vaccinated, while GPs and their staff on the front line in Limerick are not? The roll-out is inconsistent. Will the Minister look at putting in place a national roll-out specifically for GPs to ensure that there is consistency of treatment...
