Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (9 Oct 2019)

John O'Mahony: I welcome the provisions announced in the budget yesterday for tourism.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Business of Joint Committee (2 Oct 2019)

John O'Mahony: I dealt with similar issues when I was Chairman of this committee. The correspondence raises a serious matter and it is important Bus Éireann gives us its view on it. The allegation is that a profit was made from the school transport scheme and that the scheme was used to the advantage of Bus Éireann. I very much support the idea of getting answers and seeing how we proceed with...

John O'Mahony: I wish support a point raised by my colleague, Senator Ó Céidigh, on minority sports in Ireland and specifically the rowers of Ireland, who are now ranked second in the world in terms of their success, despite their lack of funding. They have made the point that depending on when individual rowers qualify, they might not be funded for another six or nine months. Particularly in an...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Challenges Facing Minority Sports: Discussion (25 Sep 2019)
