Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (8 Mar 2021)

Regina Doherty: A wide variety of topics was raised by colleagues. I accept the amendment to the Order of Business; to take No. 7 before No. 1. Senator Buttimer has requested a debate with the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage and I will put that request in for him today. I have no doubt that in the minds of the people who live in Cork, and also of the rest of us because of the...

Seanad: International Women's Day: Statements (8 Mar 2021)

Regina Doherty: I start by wishing all my colleagues here and all those who work in the Houses of the Oireachtas a very happy International Women's Day because too often in our line of business, it is seen as a man's world. I want to mark my appreciation of the work of women at all levels and of all political colours who keep this place ticking over. We are all aware that public representation in Ireland...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Mar 2021)

Regina Doherty: I add my condolences to Senator McGahon's very timely tribute. It is very sad to hear of the passing of Eoin. We extend our condolences to his wife and children. I could not agree more with Senator Lombard that there is absolutely no need for a public protest to take place in Cork. I note the irony of the call on the Minister by the Irish Council for Civil Liberties yesterday to look for...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Mar 2021)

Regina Doherty: We are all well aware of the reasons behind the extension this week and it has nothing to do with Northern Ireland. That means it is even more disingenuous to see the response from some of our politicians from Northern Ireland. I mention the chilling effect and the weakening of the support for the Good Friday Agreement. We are in a dangerous place. We should all be concerned and conscious...

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

Regina Doherty: I thank the number of colleagues who raised the disappointing announcement this morning regarding Bank of Ireland closures, which is on top of the announcement that nearly every colleague raised last week with regard to Ulster Bank. I acknowledge the concerns raised and that the bank has announced that 88 branches in its network will be closed. There were two bits of solace I took from the...

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

Regina Doherty: A number of colleagues raised the same issues, so if I respond to one Member, I ask Members to assume that I am responding to all who raised the same issues. Senator McGahon raised the issue of urban regeneration funding. Both this Government and the previous Government have made it an important stay of their commitments to funding projects, both rural and urban, in Ireland. We know there...

Seanad: Covid-19 (Aviation): Statements (26 Feb 2021)

Regina Doherty: I am sharing time with Senator Conway. I thank the Minister of State for coming to the House today to discuss aviation. To state the obvious, Ireland, as an island nation, is heavily reliant on quality connections internationally. The connectivity pre-Covid was second to none, but it took years to build and establish it. While we kept our borders open to maintain critical supply chains...

Seanad: Ábhair Ghnó an tSeanaid – Matters on the Business of the Seanad (22 Feb 2021)

Regina Doherty: I thank my colleagues. Senator McGahon spoke about something that should be on the minds of every single regulatory authority in every single country in the world. We have long talked about both the ills and the benefits in life of social media and the interaction and exchanges we have. There are many positives to social media but there are also absolute negatives. In fairness, we do not...
