Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues. I will work backwards, if that is okay. Senator Carrigy and another Senator brought up the non-uniform nature of the rules around maternity services for couples in Ireland over the past couple of months. The Senators are right.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: To be fair, I do not take it personally at all. I want the Senator to know it is not a Government thing.

It will not lessen our view, our scrutiny, our wish and...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (8 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I congratulate the Minister for Justice, Deputy McEntee, and her husband Paul on their lovely news. It is a really exciting time for them as a young couple but it highlights the disenfranchisement of a lot of women in this country in terms of the access to the equality so many women and men take for granted. It is definitely an issue we need to address not just because a female Minister...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (8 Dec 2020)

Regina Doherty: I am actually talking about both the GAA and the Ladies Gaelic Football Association. These decisions are not made in isolation. I am an avid follower of ladies Gaelic games, maybe even more so than the lads. I get significant enjoyment from sport, particularly GAA.
