Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: It is very difficult because schools sometimes feel completely unsupported in embracing issues, particularly when the actions of the Minister of State in the Department are part of the problem. That is what we are trying to achieve here. I absolutely stand over my comments. To be quite frank, only for the fact that we are focusing on children this week, the Minister of State with...

Back to School Costs: Motion [Private Members] (5 Jul 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: I appreciate the Acting Chairman's indulgence. The reason for my tardiness was because the Oireachtas football team was playing a game in Mountjoy Prison.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills: Ireland Prison Education Strategy 2019-2022: Discussion (5 Jul 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: It just so happens that an Oireachtas football team is going into Mountjoy Prison today to play a match, so it is appropriate that the witnesses are here to discuss this topic. I remember reading an article by Neil Gaiman in The Guardian some years ago in which he wrote that the prison service in the US had been outsourced to private providers. When an attempt is made to assess what the...
