Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Youth Services (9 Jul 2020)

Roderic O'Gorman: I thank the Ceann Comhairle and Deputy Buckley for their kind words. I look forward to working closely with all Members of the House in my new role. I assure the Deputy of my commitment to young people and the youth sector which provides them with such critical support. I thank the Deputy for raising this important issue. I am pleased to note that funding to the youth sector has been...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Youth Services (9 Jul 2020)

Pat Buckley: I thank the Minister for his reply. He will get to know me. I am straightforward and I do not mess around with politeness that is not needed. The Minister mentioned assessments, ETBs and so on. The first hurdle is Covid. If the virus comes back, will we blame Covid? I understand this matter was raised with the Minister at short notice but that is also the case with me. There is a...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Youth Services (9 Jul 2020)

Roderic O'Gorman: I also like to think of myself as a fairly straight talker. I have come to the House with information my officials have just gathered. I would love to be in a position to say definitively that we will keep this service open but I cannot do that. To do so would be unfair to the Deputy and, more importantly, to the people who are using the services. The Deputy was a member of Cork County...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Bus Services (9 Jul 2020)

Jackie Cahill: I thank the Minister for his reply and accept that he acknowledges the great difficulties this industry is encountering. The industry has put forward a detailed proposal about exactly how much funding it needs. I would press on the Minister to give careful consideration. The industry has stated that 17% of operators costs have to be grant-aided for them at this time. The Minister talked...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Bus Services (9 Jul 2020)

Eamon Ryan: We will very much take the figures and the information Deputy Cahill has provided will help. My colleague, the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Deputy Catherine Martin recognises that the coach industry in the tourism sector is in real trouble, along with so many other aspects of the sector. We need to be sector-specific in recognising this. The loss of the coach tourism...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Youth Services (9 Jul 2020)

Pat Buckley: I welcome the Minister, Deputy O'Gorman, to the club. Sometimes he will get an easy ride and sometimes he will not. This issue was only brought to me late last night. What is known in Carrigtwohill in east Cork as the CDYS, the Cloyne Diocesan Youth Service, is facing closure because of a lack of funding. From the information I received, it is a youth cafe that may close by 22 July and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (9 Jul 2020)

Emer Higgins: I thank the Minister for providing an outline of her Department's position on this matter and agreeing to hold the meeting. Unfortunately, the experience of schools in my constituency does not inspire hope. Scoil Chrónáin has been awaiting a new building for 45 years. St. Joseph's secondary school in Lucan has been awaiting a new building for 15 years. Scoil Áine Naofa and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: School Accommodation (9 Jul 2020)

Jackie Cahill: I wish the Minister for climate action, communication networks and transport, Deputy Eamon Ryan, all the best in his new portfolio. My question relates to financial assistance for private bus operators. Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in Ireland in March, private bus and coach operators have suffered a devastating blow to their operations. National tourism has halted, school buses are not...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Bus Services (9 Jul 2020)

Eamon Ryan: I thank the Ceann Comhairle. I am pleased to be here to answer Deputy Jackie Cahill's question and continue to engage with him on this vital issue. We have been able to continue to provide a limited but important public transport service through the Covid-19 crisis. I worked in the tourism sector for many years and recognise the important role that private bus and coach operators provide...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Special Educational Needs (9 Jul 2020)

Norma Foley: I thank the Deputy for raising the matter. Before I address the specific issue raised, I would like to provide to the Members an outline of the extent of the school transport service. School transport is a significant operation managed by Bus Éireann on behalf of my Department. In the 2019-20 school year, more than 120,000 children, including more than 14,200 children with special...
