Regina Doherty: I could not add anything to the very eloquent contribution made by Senator Currie and the demand that she correctly made. The island belongs to all of us and all of our identities should be respected. I thank Senator McGreehan for the information she provided on the Sickle Cell Society Ireland and the sickle cell disease. I have learned something this morning. While I do not wish to...

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

Regina Doherty: That is a lovely suggestion from Senator Ward. I am not sure whether we should just send a letter to the Department. I will try to arrange a debate but collectively we might initially send a letter to the relevant Minister to ask him for his opinion on the suggestion. We can wait for his response and see what comes back. Senator Chambers, among others who I will name as I come to them on...

I thank them for all of their service and wish them a healthy and happy retirement, which will hopefully be very long. Senator Paddy Burke asked me to ask the Taoiseach to come in.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (25 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank colleagues. I do not know how we can support Senator Ó Donnghaile. The provision of an Irish language Act is incredibly important in the whole island of Ireland and, indeed, to our diaspora. If there is anything that he specifically thinks we can do to help in this House, or as a Government, I would be very willing to help and hear him. The Irish language has beautiful words...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (18 May 2021)

Regina Doherty: It is a really good idea to write a letter on behalf of all Senators on this side of the pond to congratulate and thank our colleagues in the US Senate and to support the call for a special envoy. I will do that today and send all Senators a copy of the letter. Senator Dolan raised an issue that has been raised on a number of occasions in recent days. It is interesting that what women...
