Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Jan 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I welcome the positive news for the tourism sector in the figures published by the Central Statistics Office, CSO, which show there being a record number of tourists to this country last year. There were approximately 10.6 million visitors, with significant increases in the North American market. This is important because tourism is a critical part of the economy.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Live Exports: Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (29 Jan 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Many points have been covered. When one looks at the reality of the oversupply to the meat factories, the stark economic reality for farmers is that we cannot look to curtail markets, rather we have to ramp up live exports and find new markets.

(22 Jan 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: A lot of my questions have been asked and answered. I turn in particular to the very difficult situation that our beef farmers are in.
