Seanad: Order of Business (3 Feb 2016)

Marie Moloney: I wish to be associated with the tributes paid to the Cathaoirleach and wish him a happy 23rd Seanad birthday today. There were times when Senators would take issue with some decisions but he would disarm us completely with his charming smile and that would be the end of any issue we might have. I also pay tribute to Ms Deirdre Lane, Mr. Martin Groves and all the staff who have kept me on...

Seanad: Order of Business (3 Feb 2016)

Marie Moloney: Whatever it is with the public, these Senators have made their mark with it. An odd time, I might hear another name but those are the two names that will always come up. I wish candidates standing in the general election well. I refer to a few of my own colleagues and colleagues on the other side of the House standing in the general election. I also wish those who may or may not be...

Seanad: Order of Business (3 Feb 2016)

Marie Moloney: Hear, hear.

Seanad: Order of Business (28 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: I wish to raise two issues but I will be brief, so as not to take up too much time. I have been contacted by nursing homes and Nursing Homes Ireland which told me that there is an undue delay in registering nurses with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland. More than 100 nurses are waiting over 100 days for registration. If this is not sorted out sooner rather than later, it will...

Seanad: Order of Business (28 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: Unfortunately good news does not sell newspapers.

Seanad: Direct Provision: Motion (27 Jan 2016)

Seanad: Direct Provision: Motion (27 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: I welcome the Minister to the House. I would like to commend the Taoiseach's nominees on bringing forward this important motion. It is a fair and balanced motion and seeks clarification and an update. As we are all well aware, the Government published a report on the protection process on the direct provision system last June and we are very honoured to welcome the chairman of the report...

Seanad: Commencement Matters (Resumed): Labour Activation Measures (26 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: I thank the Minister of State for coming into the Chamber to take this matter. I apologise that my voice is suffering; it was not by any means from cheering on Kerry at the weekend. Before I speak about unregistered unemployed persons, I commend and acknowledge the work the Minister of State, the Minister and the Department have done to lower the number on the live register. I appreciate...

Seanad: Commencement Matters (Resumed): Labour Activation Measures (26 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: I thank the Minister of State for his very detailed reply. I am delighted to see the groups under consideration for expansion of the service.If the Minister of State or the Minister, Deputy Joan Burton, are not in their positions in the period ahead, I hope this will be continued by whoever will have responsibility for it because it is vital that people such as women in the home or dependent...

Marie Moloney: I thank the Minister of State.

Seanad: Road Traffic Bill 2016: Committee Stage (26 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: A speed limit is only good and valid if there is somebody to police it. Imposing a speed limit on an estate will not necessarily slow traffic but traffic calming measures will slow motorists down. As Senator O’Neill said, there will be places where ramps and so on cannot be introduced. Some ramps in Killarney are not wide enough meaning only half the car travels over them, which is...

Seanad: Road Traffic Bill 2016: Report and Final Stages (26 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: On behalf of my Labour Party colleague who has been active on the Bill throughout but could not be here today, I compliment the Minister and his officials on bringing it forward. I am delighted that it has passed through the House during the term of the Government. If we had not done it today, who knows whether it would have been passed during the term of the Government. As the Minister...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Road Safety (13 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: I welcome the Minister of State at the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Deputy Nash, to the House and wish him, the Cathaoirleach and the staff a happy new year.I raise this Commencement matter because there is a stretch of road at Ballydowney, Killarney, on which there is no ditch or fence. It is level with the national park where the deer are free to roam. At a recent...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Road Safety (13 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: The Minister of State has said that wildlife in the country is protected under the Wildlife Acts, which is true, but who is going to protect the people? Who is going to protect the motorists? Three fatal accidents involving deer have occurred in that area. How many more people must die before we do something about it? I cannot understand it. There was a wall there previously but it was...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Road Safety (13 Jan 2016)

Marie Moloney: That was according to the coroner.
