Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: DEIS Status (17 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Aontaím leis an Aire go n-oibríonn DEIS. Bhí an meánscoil i bPáirc na bhFianna i cathair Chorcaí, mar shampla, i measc na scoileanna is fearr feabhais anuraidh ó thaobh torthaí na hardteistiméarachta de. Téann nach mór de leath de dhaltaí na scoile go dtí an ollscoil anois. Cúpla bliain ó shin, chuaigh níos...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: DEIS Status (17 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Táim buíoch don Aire as a bheith anseo. Tá áthas orm go bhfuil sé anseo chun é seo a chloisteáil agus chun na díospóireachta seo a bheith againn. Tá súil agam go mbeidh sé in ann smaoineamh air i ndiaidh na díospóireachta. I expect that the Minister will provide a lengthier version of a reply to a parliamentary question,...

Civil Liability and Courts (Amendment) Bill 2019: Second Stage [Private Members] (16 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Ar an gcéad dul síos, beimid ag tacú leis an mBille seo. Is ábhar fíorthábhachtach é seo. Shamhlóinn go dtagann sé thar dheasca gach aon Teachta agus Seanadóir. Bíonn tionchar aige ar eagraíochtaí pobail, gnólachtaí agus a leithéidí. I am sure in any engagement Deputies have with businesses and community...

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: 572. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government if the new parts of a district will be included in the rent pressure zone in circumstances in which an electoral area or municipal district has been designated a rent pressure zone but has been subsequently redrawn; and if it will continue to apply for the district as a whole or parts of same, for example, in the case of a...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (11 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Throughout this country, and indeed in the constituency I share with the Tánaiste, people are seriously struggling with rent. Rents are rising rapidly, sometimes swallowing up to a third or a half of people's income, making getting a mortgage impossible for many. Rent pressure zones cap the increase in rent at 4% per annum, and were applied to city council areas and some electoral...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (11 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I accept that, I have given careful thought to what I have worded, and the proposition that I have laid before the Government is on legislation and who is entitled to drive taxis.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (11 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: The question I asked was not answered and perhaps I can put it in a way that the Tánaiste can answer. For the Ceann Comhairle's information, what I am about to say is quoting directly from newspaper reports and I will not depart from that. It is what is in the public record. The victim impact statement from the first woman said that she would not allow her boyfriend to touch her...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (11 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: This week it was reported that a man had been before the courts on three counts of sexual assault of three women over two weeks in 2016. In one case, the man in question, a taxi driver, touched a 19 year old woman's chest, rubbed her cheek, and when she managed to get out, he followed her in his taxi and continued to harass her and try to get her back into the car. He rubbed the face and lip...

Regulated Professions (Health and Social Care)(Amendment) Bill 2019: Second Stage (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this large and complex item of legislation. The Regulated Professions (Health and Social Care) (Amendment) Bill 2019 relates to transposition of Directive 2005/36/EC, as amended by Directive 2013/55/EU, on the recognition of professional qualifications, which it must be pointed out was agreed under the Irish Presidency of the European Union in 2013. It...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: It would be inappropriate to do so. The hotel is the locus of the protests taking place against what are absolutely appalling laws brought forward by the Sultan of Brunei. The hotel is in his sole ownership. It would be inappropriate for the Attorney General or any member of the Government to patronise it while the protest is ongoing.

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: He should ask the HSE to come in.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: EU Regulations: Minister for Justice and Equality (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I thank the Minister for coming in. It is worth having this discussion and the one we had yesterday. The Minister has stated that it would not be appropriate to have a discussion on interoperability here today. I accept it is not the primary topic before us but the issues are linked. Although the Minister might disagree, it seems to me that part of what this proposal is doing is prepping...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: EU Regulations: Minister for Justice and Equality (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I do not agree with the Minister but I do not think I will get any more information from him. If eu-LISA is going to be one of the key vehicles for the interoperability proposals when they pass into European law, it is of relevance whether Ireland decides to opt in. Those proposals could change. Has the Government communicated its view to the European institutions - to the Council or the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: EU Regulations: Minister for Justice and Equality (10 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: Very well. There is an existing regulation that Ireland has opted into. Could the Minister outline briefly the significant differences between the regulation we are discussing here today and the previous regulation?

EU Regulations: Referral to Joint Committee (9 Apr 2019)

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I welcome the opportunity to debate what is before us and what will I expect be before the Joint Committee on Justice and Equality tomorrow morning. However, we will oppose both motions on the basis that we have serious concerns about the implications in the protection of citizens' data in the future, for both non-EU and EU citizens. Although in principle, interoperability means connecting...
