An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (31 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: Statements on higher education are planned for Thursday but we only had statements on an area of higher education last Thursday. We need statements on special education.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (31 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: I doubt there is a Deputy in this House who would suggest that statements on higher and further education this Thursday are more pressing than statements on special education.

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (31 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: There is a particular issue in the country that the Ceann Comhairle will appreciate. The issue is that SNA allocations have yet to be announced and I understand that may happen at 3 p.m. today. School places have still not been found and there is an issue around the Minister of State with responsibility for special education and inclusion's dealings with this issue. This week is the week...

Irish Apprenticeship System: Statements (26 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: It might surprise the Minister of State to hear me be complimentary of the Government's efforts in this field. Many, including me, were unsure as to whether breaking up the Department of Education and establishing a new Department was a good move. However, in fairness to the Minister of State, Deputy Collins, and the Minister, Deputy Harris, I think they have made it work. I feel they have...

Education (Admission to Schools) Bill 2020 Report: Motion (19 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: I do not know where to start with the Minister's response. I am infuriated by it. The last paragraph, in particular, I find infuriating. I am beginning to wonder why we bother. The Minister asked for 12 months to do what she has just said she now needs to start. I stood here in November 2020 asking her to take seriously that, as a matter of basic equality, somebody's father, grandfather,...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Third Level Fees (19 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: I know I am a little bit older than the Minister. I am a child of the 1990s, a time when if a household had two university-age-going children, they may have only been able to send one. As part of the Labour Party's contribution to the Government at the time, half-fees were introduced halfway through my time in university, followed by completely free fees as it was called. Education cost...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Third Level Fees (19 May 2022)

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: It was not just an austerity measure; it began increasing from 1997 onwards. As soon as a charge is introduced, it can inevitably be increased. It increased from whatever it was in 1997 to approximately €1,000 within six or seven years. My point is that if the Minister does not have a vision or an absolute of free education at further and third level education, it will always be a...
