The Minister of State is well aware that the pyrite remediation scheme eligibility conditions, specifically the construction date, limits the...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Pyrite Incidence (15 Feb 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister of State for his reply and I have much hope from the fact that the necessary amendments will be considered.The defective concrete blocks grant scheme must be extended, beyond the two counties for which it was established, to Dublin Fingal and indeed probably other areas. The reason I am so invested in this issue is because the couple in question are retired. They are...

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

Regina Doherty: In response to Senator Carrigy, negative interest rates are an issue that was highlighted in the House last week, I think, and the week before. To that end, I wrote to the Minister for Finance last week asking for his response to it and what plans he might have. Otherwise we need to have a debate in the House to outline the impact on those who might not even realise yet that just holding...

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

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues. I am slightly in shock to hear Senator Daly say that we have 800,000 dogs and that only 217,000 of them are licensed. That should be something that is relatively simple to enforce yet we are not doing it. Deputy Casey raised the wonderful initiative of Ruby. It is particularly topical in conversation for the past 12 months when all of us have been walking around our...

I will ask the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science to come and have a debate with us on reopening.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Feb 2021)

Regina Doherty: I will certainly pass on the comments of Senator Keoghan and her colleagues in local government on the Taoiseach's proposed visit to the White House. Essential travel needs to continue if the world economy is to continue to support those who cannot support themselves temporarily because of the impact of Covid on our lives and society. I genuinely believe and hope, as we all do, that society...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Feb 2021)

Regina Doherty: Senator Gallagher will have to forgive me. I did not get to his contribution and I apologise. There is absolutely a need for co-operation between North and South. The Irish people are exasperated, listening to us calling for politicians, North and South, to co-operate and yet it does not happen. We put blocks and obstacles in our way and while they might be political, the people do not...

Regina Doherty: I thank the Cathaoirleach for his good wishes. It is one of those birthdays that makes one get a bit wobbly.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Jan 2021)

Regina Doherty: Yes, but they come a bit faster as one gets older. I say to Senator Cummins that the construction sector is an interesting one. I agree with him that, first, there is a need for a debate and, second, there is a need for clarity as to what is essential and what is not. While we can all say absolutely that the building of every single house, whether it is an apartment in a very salubrious...
