Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I support the call made by a number of my colleagues to regularise the children of undocumented parents. A certain number of children fall into this category. It is an indictment of our system that these children's parents can be here for years without being given a proper status that would allow them to participate fully in society. We have to own up to that and, to face it, especially in...

Seanad: EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (3 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Hear, hear.

Seanad: EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (3 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I will be brief. I welcome this important debate. I would also like to have the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Deputy Creed, in the House but I respect all that the Minister has had to say on this issue. Much of this debate has been pretty surreal or has oscillated between reality and unreality. Trade is really important. We are a small, open economy and we like to reward...

Seanad: EU-Mercosur Trade Agreement: Statements (3 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Will the Minister respond to my question on German cars? What type of cars are being sold into the South American market?

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I must also register my disgust with the Mercosur-EU trade deal. Farmers find it unbelievable. We need only look at the reports today of the surge in shares in Brazilian meat packers on the back of the announcement of this trade deal to know that they will ramp up production in South America and as people have pointed out, pull down rainforests and produce their beef in a less...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: The Oireachtas Joint Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine launched a report last week about the future of the beef industry in the context of Food Wise 2025. What was done last Friday has put a coach and four right through it. We need to go back to the drawing board and go through the whole thing. I ask that the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine be brought in here so...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Animal Health Levies (Pigs) Regulations 2019: Motion (2 Jul 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: What is the Minister's view on the pigs Mercosur countries will be entitled to import arising from the EU-Mercosur deal? What is the potential impact?

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Vacant Properties (26 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Cathaoirleach for allowing me to raise this important matter and the Minister for his attendance. As the Minister will be aware, a considerable number of people throughout County Mayo are seeking suitable housing, both social and private. From my weekly clinics dealing with people on many housing matters and having had the opportunity to canvass many parts of the county, I know...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Vacant Properties (26 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Minister for his reply. I am glad to note there is some activity. I would be interested in getting more information on the 61 vacant properties the Minister mentioned. I agree the majority of empty houses are privately owned. There are not many long-term voids in the council housing stock. However, I could point to 61 such properties in my town alone, which is only a small...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Vacant Properties (26 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: So it was a sample.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I compliment the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission for organising the all-Ireland food fair to which we were all invited last week in the Members' Restaurant. It was a treat for the senses and the food was absolutely fantastic. I particularly want to single out the Mayo Mountain Blackface Sheep Breeders group who were represented on that occasion by Pat Chambers of Newport and Peter...
