Report of the Joint Committee on Education, Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science: Motion (23 May 2024)

Mary Butler: I have increased the budget by 33% since I came to this post four years ago and I believe that a report on supports for mental health for students is required so that we can stop the political point scoring. Approximately €146.5 million is being provided to CAMHS this year. In addition, €110 million is provided to community-based mental health organisations and NGOs...

Report of the Joint Committee on Education, Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science: Motion (23 May 2024)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I ask for the Members' indulgence. I notice that according to what is before me we will next hear from the Minister of State, Deputy Mary Butler. The only Member speaking afterwards is Deputy Sorca Clarke and then we are back to the Minister of State. It is a bit disjointed. It might be better to hear Deputy Clarke first and then we can give the Minister of State the additional time....

Report of the Joint Committee on Education, Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science: Motion (23 May 2024)

Sorca Clarke: They say it is a rarity but let us prove them wrong, a Cheann Comhairle. I will start by saying something that will make me and everyone else here sound like an old fogey. The world we knew as children and young people is extremely different from the world that our children and young people are growing up and living in. It is up to us to support them when they need it, to build resilience...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Heritage Sites (23 May 2024)

Bernard Durkan: Unfortunately, time is running out fast. I have here an email from a local resident who is a strong supporter of the need to ensure that access to Castletown House continues uninterrupted and unimpeded. She refers to a petition in 2024 of 5,000 signatures and support for the petition to keep Lime Avenue pedestrian and to ensure that it is not shared with any traffic because it is too...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Heritage Sites (23 May 2024)

Kieran O'Donnell: I note Deputy Durkan's utter commitment in this area. I think everyone is of a common bond, which is that we want to see Castletown House reopened and want the estate back to normal functioning hours. The overlying thing is that it remains the strategic objective of the OPW to acquire the remaining lands to reunite all the lands at the former estate. I gave a commitment to the working...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Heritage Sites (23 May 2024)

Bernard Durkan: Including the opening of the gates, as per September last. The gates will open for pedestrians and Lime Avenue will open for pedestrians.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Heritage Sites (23 May 2024)

Kieran O'Donnell: There is an issue with Lime Avenue, as Deputy Durkan is well aware. I have a fiduciary duty to staff in the OPW as well. We have had discussions with the unions. There are issues we need to deal with, including health and safety, and I want the report we are doing to be a common basis for discussion. Ultimately, we want to get Castletown House and the grounds fully reopened. There is a...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Post Office Network (23 May 2024)

Mary Butler: The Deputy will appreciate that the Minister cannot intervene in matters which the Oireachtas has given An Post a statutory responsibility to fulfil. An Post has an independent board that has a clear mandate. I accept that the Deputy is not happy that the post office is being converted. However, I am thankful that it is not proposed that the post office be closed. I encourage everyone...
