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

Regina Doherty: I will go from back to front, if that is okay. There is a motion on the Order of Business regarding the sixth report of the Committee on Procedure and Privileges, CPP. One would be forgiven for thinking, from the various and fairly passionate statements that have been made here, that this was not agreed yesterday at the CPP. I was not at the CPP-----

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

Regina Doherty: I did not interrupt the Senator. I can see that she is passionate about this but I will not listen to charges made against me and my colleagues for, in Senator Higgins' opinion, trying to dispel an opportunity for debate.

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

If the proposal was not agreed, the motion should never have...

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

I pay tribute to RTÉ for the coverage it gave us over the weekend, in particular the montage at the very end that was so poignantly put to the Seamus Heaney poem. I thought it was beautiful and, apparently, it...

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

Regina Doherty: I have no skin in the game between Cork or Kerry but it gave great joy in our house and it was something to shout out at on the telly at the weekend. Sport is definitely something to be welcomed. A number of colleagues asked for debates and I will put in requests immediately. A number of them are tied together and that might be significant with regard to maybe having a day-long debate on...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: I agree with the Order of Business. I raise today the ongoing and deeply distressing situation of hundreds of Aer Lingus employees.

Seanad: Ábhair Ghnó an tSeanaid - Matters on the Business of the Seanad (5 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: Wide-ranging and varied debates have been requested by Senators and one can see that although Covid seems to be all-consuming, normal life and normal challenges still exist for all our towns, villages and communities. I take my hat off to Ballinasloe Says No because it won on this issue once previously. I wish Senators Murphy and Dolan and all the community groups down there every success...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Engagement with Representatives from the European Parliament (4 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Chair and everybody in attendance this morning. On the point made by Ms Daly, MEP, the relationship Irish people have with the EU is probably as good as it has ever been. That is because we have seen the relevance of a positive impact of the EU. Unfortunately, that is just on Brexit, because before that all we ever heard was negative stuff, in that the bowsies over there were...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: EU Response to Covid-19: Discussion (28 Oct 2020)

Regina Doherty: I thank the Minister for his opening remarks and for the humility of his approach, especially in the past week. In Irish society there have been few occasions where we have felt the gut-wrenching anger of our citizens with regard to the treatment of previous generations of Irish women and men. We have definitely felt the anger, the hurt and the sense of revisiting the humiliation inflicted...
