Údarás na Gaeltachta (Amendment) Bill 2024: Second Stage (11 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: Beidh mé ag roinnt ama le mo chomhghleacaí, an Teachta Connolly. Níl Gaeilge mhaith agam mar sin ba mhaith liom Béarla a labhairt. I am glad to have the opportunity to speak on the Bill. I support the legislation and its intention to amend an tAcht um Údarás na Gaeltachta, 1979 to change the current nomination and selection process governing the appointment...

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (11 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: Publication by The Ditch of the Attorney General's advice on defective blocks is doing citizens some service. The issue was caused by previous governments moving to self-certification of building materials rather than the State enforcing quality on them. Does the Tánaiste agree with the Attorney General's advice that the terms of the scheme will affect the number of applicants? Does...

Courts, Civil Law, Criminal Law and Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2024: Committee and Remaining Stages (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: On the Minister's response to my query about why now, are we to take it that it is pure coincidence? It was not clear what the Minister said. Is it that this was basically prepared and ready, sitting in the Department for years, and the Minister just decided to put it into the Bill now because this is a miscellaneous provisions Bill and she wanted to throw something into it? Alternatively,...

Thomas Pringle: I take on board what the Minister is saying-----

Courts, Civil Law, Criminal Law and Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2024: Committee and Remaining Stages (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: I wanted to ask a quick question of the Minister, if I can. The Damache judgment was in October 2020. We are now in July 2024. The Minister said that these Bills come up at a certain time and have to be dealt with. What actually happened between October 2020 and now, that it could not come up before this? I wonder what the situation is on that. It is obviously not rushed or urgent...

Courts, Civil Law, Criminal Law and Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2024: Committee and Remaining Stages (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: I support what Deputy Howlin has outlined in his contribution although I am not going to go into the same level of detail as he did on foot of his legal advice. It is a very serious decision that the Department is making here, to introduce this in the way it is being introduced. The Irish Council for Civil Liberties had not even seen this and only heard about it today. The council sent an...

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: I wish to get the Government's position correct in respect of Gaza. From what I see in the House, Ukraine does get equal and positive treatment in this House and by all the people of Ireland. The point we are making is about the hypocrisy in Europe.

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: Let me ask the question and then the Minister of State can have her say. The Minister of State said the European Union has perhaps moved a couple of baby steps towards the Irish position. She said we all focused on what Ursula von der Leyen said and did a year ago regarding Israel. That is not the case. Deputy Harkin mentioned what was said in the European Council summary today. At what...

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: By passing the occupied territories Bill or something like that. The Minister of State said the European Union does not have an agreed position, therefore this is the position it is taking. When will it take a different position because of our views?

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (10 Jul 2024)

Thomas Pringle: It was shocking to see the European Council express its full solidarity and support for Israel and its people and reaffirm its full commitment to its security and regional stability, despite the fact that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza, despite the fact that Israel shows complete disregard for international law and despite the fact that UN experts have said that Israel is carrying out...
