Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Public Transport (22 Sep 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister for joining us in the House, although I must say it is a real pity that the Minister for Transport is away on business because of the serious nature of the leak that we are discussing today in respect of the MetroLink project. We are all aware, based on the last presentation from TII which was only two weeks ago, that the MetroLink project was supposed to be completed in...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Public Transport (22 Sep 2021)

Regina Doherty: I do not want to be disrespectful to the Minister for Education and I thank her for coming in to deliver the message from the Minister for Transport. Given that confidence has been shaken so badly in the last few days, what we need is something more definitive than ambition. We have been listening to ambition since the 1970s. The Minister laid out the timelines and how they have slipped...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (21 Sep 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Cathaoirleach and colleagues. It is absolutely lovely to be back and to be talking about any issue other than Covid-19. We have been consumed by that for the past 18 months. There is certainly romance in the air in the Seanad. On behalf of colleagues, I wish Senator Moynihan every happiness. I also wish Senator Hoey, who got married a couple of days after we went into recess,...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I would like to add to the Chair's remarks on Belgium's national day and to wish the people there solidarity in light of the difficulties that they are going through with the adverse weather conditions and the loss of life they have experienced in the past 24 hours and, indeed, the expected floods today and tomorrow. We are mindful of them. We wish them safety in the next few days. The...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I will go through some of the specific issues before the general thanks at the end of the session. Senators Gavan and Higgins raised an issue relating to some of the staff who work in this House. Our recording staff only contacted me in the last week. I am not sure if some of the people in this House are aware that we as a State worked with RTÉ as a State operator in the last number...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) (No. 2) Bill 2021: Second and Subsequent Stages (16 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I am a fast talker. Few Bills like this one have come before the Oireachtas in our time here in the past ten years. It is a difficult Bill to support because it is dividing society and excluding. That is obvious and accepted by everybody. It is not something anybody or any Government would do lightly. In some parts, it is even going against NPHET's advice, which is not something we have...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 Jul 2021)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: To Senator Gallagher and Senator Boylan, I can only assume we all feel the same way with regard to the unilateral decision or intention relayed to us yesterday by Westminster and a Conservative Government. The statement of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Deputy Coveney, was incredibly strong and he speaks for all of us. As stated by Senator Boylan, the Stormont House Agreement is a treaty...

Seanad: Death of Former Member (15 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I move: That Seanad Éireann – - expresses its deep sadness on the death of Dr Seán McCarthy; - conveys its sincere condolences to his family; and - expresses its gratitude for his notable contribution, as a member of Seanad Éireann and Dáil Éireann, to Irish public life and for his dedicated service to the people of Ireland.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (13 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I tell you, a Chathaoirligh, Ruth Lawlor is a cracking, energetic woman. It is Senator Buttimer’s privilege to work with her, as indeed it has been for many other Fine Gael politicians over the years. It is a real credit to her because she is one great woman. I wish her well and continued success in her career here in Leinster House campus. To answer Senator Buttimer's request, I...

We would like to send her a message of congratulations and sincerest warm wishes from all of us. I would also like to...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (12 Jul 2021)

Regina Doherty: I was looking at the Cathaoirleach with disbelief. It is incredible to think Councillor McGarvey has had such a successful career in what we would consider the autumn of his life. He is obviously still raring to go and I will send a letter to him on all our behalf today wishing him a happy birthday and continued success.Senator Dolan talked about the hospitality industry. Senator Keogan...
