Seanad: Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Committee Stage (Resumed) (18 Jun 2019)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Animal Welfare and the Control and Management of Horses: Discussion (18 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I welcome the representatives from the Department and the LGMA. Initially, it is shocking to see the statistics on the number of horses that have been euthanised. Thankfully, it is in decline, but it gives an idea of the extent of the problem. There are problems with all sorts of domesticated animals, but unlike dogs or cats, horses are big and one cannot hide them. That said, I am aware...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (12 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: With reference to the sustained and continuous debate on climate change, it is a fact that the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, SEAI, has experienced a considerable surge in uptake of the various grants it offers across its programmes. This is putting considerable pressure on its budgets. The issue was first flagged for me in April when it seemed that new applications were being...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Accommodation Provision (11 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: The Minister of State, Deputy Halligan, is very welcome to the Seanad Chamber. I thank him for responding to this very important item. Newtownwhite national school is a rural school situated between Killala and Ballina and was in decline until September 2012 when under the patronage divestment process the patronage transferred from the Church of Ireland to Educate Together. It is safe to...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: School Accommodation Provision (11 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Minister of State for his response, from which I take some hope and positivity. Nevertheless, I am sure he will agree the issue of the lease, which has been ongoing since 2014, has taken an inordinate length of time to be resolved. It must be resolved, however, because as I have described, a further delay will hold the school back in respect of the provision of additional...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (11 Jun 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I warmly welcome the revised fair deal rules which came before Cabinet today. They have been long awaited and are much needed and they will alleviate the situation in which farmers and small businesses find themselves. The new rules will see a three-year cap on a 7.5% contribution from farmers and small business owners. This has been advocated by the farming organisations in particular....

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

Michelle Mulherin: I ask for a debate to be facilitated on the home loans being provided by local authorities under the Rebuilding Ireland purchase scheme. The scheme needs some changes, in particular to facilitate people who had a home but lost it in our difficult economic times, when many people lost their jobs. They are back on their feet now but cannot get a loan because their credit rating is shot. They...

Seanad: Farm Safety Agency Bill 2018: Second Stage (29 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I commend Senator Paul Daly for the body of work he has done to bring this item before the House today and thank him for putting this issue centre stage. It is so important that we try to do what we can to reduce fatalities and serious life-changing injuries arising out of farm accidents. It is a real weak spot for farm families. Senator Paddy Burke spoke about the change in farming over...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna (Atógáil) - Commencement Matters (Resumed): Housing Policy (28 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Minister of State for coming before the House. I think we can all agree that there is no one solution to fix the housing shortage problem, as everyone knows. We need a multifaceted approach and to think outside the box. Modular builds are part of the solution in the shorter term and, in some cases, the longer term, particularly from the point of view that they can be delivered...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna (Atógáil) - Commencement Matters (Resumed): Housing Policy (28 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I agree with respect to standards and we know that sometimes the lack of standards, even in the private sector, can come back to bite the Government, because the person who buys a house or has it built may lose out. There are issues and they have been explained to me, even with respect to my own local authority. Notwithstanding the modular build not being precluded, there seems to be a lack...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (28 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: We are all well versed on the considerable challenges facing shops on the main streets of towns and villages, including the bigger towns, due to online selling, multiple retailers and also the need to pay commercial rates, which online retailers do not have to pay. These problems remain. Unfortunately, we see too many of these shops closed on our main streets, and it is a depressing sight....
