European Council Meeting: Statements (14 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: A couple of weeks ago in the Dáil, the Minister for Foreign Affairs said he believed it was not best for Ireland to act unilaterally in support of Palestine against Israeli abuse and terror inflicted on the Palestinians. He said he believed Ireland should work with Europe as a unit to try to deliver a two-state solution. That would all be credible if Ireland influenced other European...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (8 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: This is effectively putting the Government on notice regarding the issues that residents of Poolbeg Quay, Ringsend, are experiencing. The financial worry is leading to huge stress and concern. It is having a real impact on residents and families and their mental health. It is important that the Government does not abandon them. The residents are not going to leave this matter. They will...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Housing Schemes (8 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I thank the Minister of State for facilitating this important matter. In 2004, 62 apartments were part of an affordable housing scheme at Poolbeg Quay, at the end of Sean Moore Road in Ringsend. There was huge excitement for those who got apartments and disappointment for those who did not. In 2004, these affordable homes - two-bed apartments - cost, on average, €146,000. The...

Dublin Fire Brigade: Motion [Private Members] (7 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I thank my colleague, Deputy Paul Donnelly, for bringing forward this motion to the Dáil. I commend the men and women of Dublin Fire Brigade on their commitment and bravery in carrying out their work. When one looks out the window today, it is notable that most people are indoors, but the fire services are the people we call on if there is any trouble or concern for us or our families....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I know the Minister is absolutely on the survivors' side; that is not in question. The difficulty is that Dr. Shannon has had no contact from St. John Ambulance. Its representatives talk about engaging in the process but they do not actually do it. If organisations with a clear history of sexual abuse refuse to co-operate with reviews and investigations into these crimes, we need more than...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Child Abuse (2 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: I thank the Acting Chairman for staying to this hour. I appreciate it. I also thank the Minister for coming in at this hour and giving me the opportunity to discuss this very important matter. Most people will be well aware of the work St. John Ambulance does and the services it provides. We are all used to seeing its presence at a wide range of sporting events including GAA, soccer and...

Joint Committee on Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport And Media: Elimination of Abuse Towards Referees, Officials and Players in Sport: Discussion (1 Dec 2021)

Chris Andrews: Like our guests, I acknowledge the role of referees. They do a really important job, as pointed out by everyone throughout this discussion. Along with most people, I would not do it, which is probably why it is such a struggle to get referees. I often think referees and goalkeepers have the two worst jobs on the pitch. Theirs are both thankless jobs. Like that of goalkeepers, the job of...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories: Statements (30 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: It is really hard to know where to start when addressing apartheid Israel and its long list of aggressive acts on Palestine. There has been and continues to be much abuse by Israel on the Palestinian people. Among those abuses, which the Minister probably saw at first hand when he was over there on his recent visit, are the illegal settlements that no one can stop, the blockade of Gaza that...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Home Care Packages (30 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: 648. To ask the Minister for Health if allocated home care hours for a person (details supplied) will be provided by the home care package providers despite staff shortages; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [58868/21]

Mother and Baby Institutions: Statements (25 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: I acknowledge the dreadful experience of the survivors and extend my sympathies to them. I thank them for the messages they sent to all of us over the past several months and years. The response of the State to those who suffered such immense brutality at the hands of the church has been nothing short of a national disgrace. Sadly, this seems to be the way that successive Governments...

Planning and Development (Amendment) (Large-scale Residential Development) Bill 2021 [Seanad]: Second Stage (25 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this important Bill. As a Deputy for Dublin Bay South, I have seen first-hand the terrible impact the SHD legislation has brought to local communities. Thousands of build-to-rent apartments and co-living units have been developed across the city with little or no regard for affordability or integration into the local community. They are just another...

Climate Action Plan 2021: Statements (23 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: We are amidst a deepening crisis as climate change continues to accelerate apace. We hear of all the rhetoric and talk from Government of a just transition for our communities, grants and supports for retrofitting of homes and for electric cars. However, that is all it is to most people - it is talk. How can the average family afford a €40,000 to €60,000 retrofit of their...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (23 Nov 2021)

Chris Andrews: I wish the Ceann Comhairle a speedy recovery. Separate to the redress scheme for people who own homes affected by mica, there is a working group within the environment Department that examines defects in housing. Poolbeg Quay residents in Ringsend, who are all mortgage holders through Dublin City Council, have homes with serious defects. There are 62 homes there and this would take...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (23 Nov 2021)
