Other Questions: Hospital Waiting Lists (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: A total of 11,468 people have been waiting for outpatient appointments in Cork for more than a year. That is across a range of specialties. Earlier this year, I raised with the Minister the position regarding gynaecological services in Cork, which has the largest waiting list for those services and which is far ahead of anywhere else in the country. Women in need of those services are...

Other Questions: Hospital Waiting Lists (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: While people are languishing on waiting lists they have diminished quality of life. Their distress and anxiety must be unimaginable. There is significant suffering and it is cruelly compounded by that long wait. Those outpatient waiting lists are causing delayed diagnosis of cancers and other serious conditions. While we can consider the different statistics, I am seeing the real people...

Other Questions: Hospital Waiting Lists (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the Minister for those details. For each of those people, and their families, who are on that waiting list suffering significantly, there is a fear of a delayed diagnosis of cancers and other conditions. We have already seen the different reports. We know there was plan for a one-stop-shop for gynaecological services in Cork. That needs to be acted on. When I raised this issue...

Topical Issue Debate: Waste Disposal Charges (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: Earlier this summer, in response to widespread concern about the way the domestic pay-by-weight system was being introduced, Fianna Fáil called on the Minister to implement a transition period for the system to ensure householders were fully informed and were able to plan financially for the expected charges. One of the key features of the agreement that was put together in June of this...

Topical Issue Debate: Waste Disposal Charges (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I put it to the Minister of State that enforcement is needed. Waste companies are either charging under the pay-by-weight system or they are not. It is a black and white matter. It is clear that waste companies are charging by the kilogramme even though they are not supposed to do so until next year. I suggest the Government needs to take action in this respect. The Minister of State...

Topical Issue Debate: Waste Disposal Charges (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I have one example where it is 30 kg.

Cannabis for Medicinal Use (Regulations) Bill 2016: Second Stage [Private Members] (1 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I support the Bill and thank Deputy Gino Kenny for bringing it to the House. It is a number of years since I first met Vera Twomey, a constituent of mine from Aghabullogue. Her daughter, Ava, suffers from Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy. It is a very severe condition characterised by repeated, violent and multiple seizures every day. The family have tried various medicines...

Order of Business (6 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: There is a commitment in the programme for Government to protecting local services, in particular in respect of the transport network where the Government acknowledges the importance of the bus for older and vulnerable people. It also speaks about examining how existing routes can be made more sustainable. Locals are in fear of the Cork-Tralee No. 40 express bus, which serves Ballyvourney...

Order of Business (6 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: -----go mbainfidh amach an bus sin atá ag freastal ar Bhaile Bhuirne agus Baile Mhic Íre. Can the Taoiseach give assurances to passengers travelling to and from Ballyvourney and Ballymakeera that any change in bus services will not result in a downgrading of services?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Effect of Bad Weather on Grain Harvest: Irish Farmers Association (6 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank the deputation for the comprehensive report and presentation. I have had the opportunity to discuss the issue with a number of people locally who have been hit directly by it. They are very stressed and very much at a loss on the issue. I have also discussed it with my party colleagues, who have been highlighting it to the Minister as well. While there are only 400 farms affected,...

Pension Equality and Fairness: Motion (Resumed) [Private Members] (7 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: I thank Deputy John Brady for raising this very important issue in the Dáil. I have raised the issue of inequality in contributory pension payments time and again in the Dáil and raised it this time last year in Cork County Council because it is so troubling for so many families. I raised it last October with the Minister for Social Protection. It is unfortunate that he is not...

[39994/16]

Questions on Proposed Legislation (15 Dec 2016)

Aindrias Moynihan: Earlier this summer the dispute on the pay-by-weight domestic waste collection saw a deferral and, significantly, a price freeze was agreed. There was a commitment for legislation if the prize freeze and deferral were not working. Householders have told me they are seeing an increase in their bills as a direct result of the pay-by-weight system. Clearly there are companies that are not...

Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Jan 2017)

Aindrias Moynihan: In the programme for Government there is a commitment to support child care workers who are upskilling. Last week, the Minister announced a grant scheme of just over €700 for child care workers doing courses. The closing date for the grant scheme announced last week is today, which means the scheme was only opened for applications for approximately five days. While it was flagged...

Aindrias Moynihan: Cuirim fáilte roimh na finnéithe agus molaim an cur i láthair. Mar a luaigh an Teachta Ó Cuív, tá tacaíocht Fhianna Fáil acu. Ba mhaith liom soiléiriú a fháil ar chúpla rud. Aontaím go bhfuil sé an-tábhachtach an dalta atá ag teacht ón dtigh le Gaolainn a bheith sa chéad áit ann. Tá mé...

Tillage Farming: Motion [Private Members] (18 Jan 2017)

Aindrias Moynihan: I acknowledge the farmers in the Gallery. Emergency aid is needed for cereal growers affected by the bad weather last year. Over 350 farmers, in the main in the south and along the west coast, have had crop losses of between 20% and 50% and, owing to high moisture and low KPH, payments for salvaged crop were poor. Farmers in many areas also experienced straw losses of in excess of 50%. As...
