Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Food Democracy: Trócaire (14 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Last week Dr. Sinead McCarthy from Teagasc appeared before the committee on Europe Day. We discussed food in the context of climate action, carbon emissions and the contention that we need to get more of our protein from plants. I observed that when one goes into the supermarket and looks for beans, lentils, and pulses, all these products are imported. Dr. McCarthy acknowledged that...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Food Democracy: Trócaire (14 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: That was not really my question, with respect. What I am saying is that it became obvious during the discussion that we are not so well suited. I am talking about the protein we get from plants such as beans, not about fruits and vegetables or anything like that, because the debate is around where we get our protein. In fact, the doctor from Teagasc outlined that we are well-suited to get...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Future of the Beef Sector: Discussion (Resumed) (14 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Based on what the representatives have described, I can see many beef farmers taking up the initiative for the sake of certainty and the prospect of a bonus being paid. In the presentation I note the description of the Twenty20 Beef Club as being farmer-centric. However, I share many of the reservations expressed by colleagues. The organisations are not doing it for the good of their...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Common Agricultural Policy (9 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: To follow on from the question of my colleague, Deputy Corcoran-Kennedy, there is no doubt that there are now far more soya beans, mung beans, pinto beans, lentils and so on for sale in supermarkets. From which countries are these products coming? The products at which I have looked are not produced in Ireland. I am specifically referring to plant-based protein foods for human consumption....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Climate Change (9 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I welcome our guests, who have spoken passionately. These are issues that we considered in significant depth in writing our report. Action is needed. The requirement that we live more sustainably, which we have not been doing for years, is at the heart of this. It is the fallout of industrialisation and so on. If people were surveyed, everyone would agree with the targets under the Paris...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (8 May 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I wish to highlight the forthcoming strike action by community employment, CE, supervisors involving approximately 1,250 people around the country next Monday, with a further four days proposed. I am very concerned about the impact on the various community and social services that are provided in the communities which have the benefit of community employment schemes, such as care of the...

Seanad: Statement by the Taoiseach (18 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: It is great to have this opportunity to have this engagement with the Taoiseach in the Upper House. As we are celebrating the 70th anniversary since the coming into being of the Republic, I would like to focus on the here and now and plans for future prosperity for our nation and its people. I want to focus on the whole area and challenge of achieving balanced regional development and...

Seanad: Statement by the Taoiseach (18 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: There will be no wind farm supporting it with green energy. An opportunity for jobs and investment for Athenry and the whole region has been lost. Since the granting of planning permission in August 2016, it took until last week for the whole judicial review process to conclude. This raises a number of matters. First, a planning system that yields this type of result is not fit for...

Seanad: Statement by the Taoiseach (18 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: Internationally, such matters are noted and taken on board by investors and this is really going to stymie us; we have presented ourselves as a small open economy and if we cannot attract in this type of investment we are going to be in bother. Another matter I have raised with the Taoiseach before is the whole issue of European sites. These are lands designated as special areas of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I highlight the recent decision of the Supreme Court to dismiss an appeal concerning the Apple data centre. A decision was issued by An Bord Pleanála in August 2016 and it has taken until now to have an appeal dealt with. Even though the appeal has been dismissed, the appellants have won because Apple has left. The Athenry area has been deprived of an €850 million development...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Water and Sewerage Schemes Provision (10 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Minister of State for coming in to take this important issue. We are facing into the implementation of a new multi-annual rural water programme between 2019 and 2021. I seek a proper water connection for households in Downpatrick, Furmoyle, and Carramore, which is a townland in Ballycastle, County Mayo, in order that they have water they can drink, wash their clothes in and use...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Water and Sewerage Schemes Provision (10 Apr 2019)

Michelle Mulherin: I thank the Minister of State for agreeing to revert to me regarding Carramore. I appreciate that. I have hope. There have been several schemes in Mayo and every time they change the rules, one scheme gets brought into the net. It has been very piecemeal but it will make a big difference for the people concerned. All of us can agree that in this day and age, having to bring water to...
