An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (28 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: Last night, Boris Johnson's Bill to override unilaterally parts of the protocol passed its Second Stage vote in the British House of Commons.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (28 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: For all of what the Taoiseach has recited on his list, Esther Pugh of the Barnardos centre in Loughlinstown has told the story of what is happening on the ground and the real fear and the real stress and pressure that families are living with. Our motion, by the way, does not state that the Government did nothing; on the contrary, we recognise the international factors. Putin is...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (28 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: I am asking it to recognise that families have to live and to exist day to day and week to week and that they are struggling badly.

He first served in the old Stormont Parliament for East...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (21 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: One year ago, a wealthy cuckoo fund bought an entire estate of family homes in Maynooth. I am sure the Taoiseach remembers that. Instead of taking comprehensive action then, the Government introduced a token 10% stamp duty increase. It was warned at the time that this would not stop these funds and that these funds would easily absorb that increase by charging massive rents, on which they...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: First things first. I am not asking the Taoiseach to chase inflation. I am asking him to recognise the reality that people are struggling now, in June, and that people will continue to struggle through the summer months, not to mention the winter ahead of them. The Taoiseach says that we need to protect our economy, and we do, but above all else we need to protect our people. Above all...
