Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (18 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank Senators for all of the wide and varied items they brought up this morning. As I have so little time, I will respond by saying that for anybody who has asked me to write letters on specific topics, I will do so and I will send them a copy of the letter individually. With regard to anybody who has asked for a debate, I know it is a symptom of this House that we stand up and ask for...

Seanad: Election of Leas-Chathaoirleach (18 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: I move: "That Senator Joe O'Reilly be elected Leas-Chathaoirleach." I am privileged to stand here today and nominate Senator Joe O'Reilly because he is one of my oldest friends, not in age but in terms of the length of time we have been friends, in my short political life. He is a titan not only of this House but of the Dáil and Cavan County Council. I propose him for the position of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: The Order of Business is No. 1, the Criminal Justice (Enforcement Powers) (Covid-19) Bill 2020 - all Stages, to be taken at 1 p.m., with the contributions of groups' spokespersons not to exceed eight minutes each and those of all other Senators not to exceed five minutes each on Second Stage, and with Committee and Remaining Stages to be taken immediately thereafter, and No. 2, earlier...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: On a point of order, I recognise I am new here and things are being espoused in my name which I am not even sure were requested. This is the logic of my brain. I do not know how Members can say they disagree with the proposed Order of Business without saying they would rather talk about something else or proposing an alternative Order of Business. That leads to the practice we have always...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: There are issues that need to be ironed out and we must agree to iron them out at the Committee on Procedure and Privileges. We must agree on how to proceed with very important business such as Brexit, maternity issues and access to school buses. The list is long and varied for all of us. It would not be fair to say they are constituency-based issues. We all want to raise very important...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Sep 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank everyone for making that proposal. Unfortunately, I cannot accede to it on the basis that I do not have the ability to make the alternative arrangements to have a second sitting tomorrow or on Monday. It is because I do not have permission to have access to the Dáil but probably more importantly because I do not have a Minister to conduct the legislation. I hear Members very...

Seanad: Minute's Silence on Deaths of Dr. Syed Waqqar Ali and Ruth Morrissey (24 Jul 2020)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (24 Jul 2020)

Regina Doherty: I wish to acknowledge the Irish giving spirit Senator Craughwell has talked about because it extends to many more groups of people and communities than just the veterans he referred to. We cannot acknowledge it enough. It is inherent in all of our DNA. We are a very giving people. Irish communities and societies are a great example of what we can do when we work together. I will briefly...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (24 Jul 2020)

Regina Doherty: It is the single biggest investment in Irish people we have ever seen in the history of the State. There is an important role for Opposition to point out the flaws, but it would be lovely if just for once, in a sign of solidarity, the Opposition recognised that the State in all of its forms has an obligation to support every citizen in this country and yesterday's significant announcement...
