Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (20 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome our witnesses. I mean no offence but I wish to put something on the record. The representatives' group is called Limerick and Tipperary Woodland Owners but I stress that this issue does not affect Limerick and Tipperary only. I am from Westmeath and a farmer based outside Mullingar has contacted me with a serious problem in this regard. While I am not coming at the witnesses, it...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (20 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: There is one part of the question that I omitted. Is it continually spreading because it is an airborne disease? Is inaction causing the continuous spread in that scenario?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (20 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome the IFA president, Mr. Cullinan, and Ms O'Sullivan to the committee. By virtue of the technological problems we are having, and to reiterate what Senator Boyhan said about Mr. Vincent Nally, a fellow county man of mine with whom I have had much contact and who is a mine of information on this whole sector, I propose that the committee accept a written submission from Mr. Nally in...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Challenges for the Forestry Sector: Discussion (20 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank the Chairman. With that in mind, I have just a couple of questions for the IFA president. We can go back and spend the limited time we have here talking about where ash dieback came from and whose fault it was that it came in. There is no future in history. This thing is about going forward and getting solutions to the problems we have on hand. The witnesses have commented on...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Covid-19 on the Agriculture Sector and Priorities for CAP and Brexit: Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (6 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I congratulate the Minister on his appointment and wish him good luck in the role. I also take the opportunity to congratulate the Chairman and Vice Chairman, Senator Lombard, on their appointment and to wish them both well in their briefs. I soldiered alongside the Chairman and the Minister, week after week, in the committee that sat during the last Oireachtas. I learned a lot from them...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Impact of Covid-19 on the Agriculture Sector and Priorities for CAP and Brexit: Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (6 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister for his comprehensive answers. What is the situation in the context of Brexit, with de minimisand state aid rules? Have there been any negotiations with Europe on pumping support into particular sectors, if necessary, once the outcome of Brexit is known? Will we be hindered in any way in supporting any particular sectors by de minimisor state aid rules? Have there been...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Vaccination Programme (1 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I welcome the Minister of State to the House and thank her for coming to address this matter. It is my first opportunity to formally congratulate her on her appointment so I wish her the very best of luck. This topic continues from the matter raised by Senator Keogan, specifically the availability of the flu vaccine in GP practices. A number of GPs have contacted me, including my own GP,...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Vaccination Programme (1 Oct 2020)

Paul Daly: I thank the Minister of State for her comprehensive reply and I broadly welcome the fact that the number of vaccines coming into the country has increased to the best part of 1.95 million based on the Minister of State's answer. The kernel of my query is about the distribution of those vaccines to the GPs. It is vitally important that the Minister, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, or the Department...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (24 Jul 2020)

Paul Daly: I wish to raise an issue that is of major concern to me and rural Ireland. It is of concern on a broader scale as well. I refer to the control of the noxious weed called ragwort. Anyone who travels on a road will see this yellow weed and to the uninformed, it may look well. It is a nice yellow weed to view but it is a noxious weed. Livestock and horses avoid eating it. If they eat it in...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 Jul 2020)

Paul Daly: I support everything Senator Lombard said about farm safety.As Members are aware, I introduced the Farm Safety Agency Bill 2018 in the previous Seanad, which got to Second Stage, and I hope to get it back on the floor of the Houses as soon as it is possible to progress it further. Everybody will have an input on Committee Stage. While it may not be a silver bullet solution to the major...

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (29 Jun 2020)

Paul Daly: I congratulate the Cathaoirleach on his appointment and clarify that we are political cousins, not biological ones. I came into the Twenty-fifth Seanad as a first-time Senator. The ball was at my feet in that I anticipated I was going to change the world. I was not long finding out that, irrespective of what I tried to do, what I tried to say or where I tried to go, it was almost as if I...

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (29 Jun 2020)

Paul Daly: The Cathaoirleach should not get carried away. This story is going to end. There was an occasion or two where there were statements or activities that I did not want to be associated with.

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (29 Jun 2020)

Paul Daly: For those, I thank him for helping me to get over my shyness very quickly. I want to thank the outgoing Senators and, in particular, my good friend, Senator Buttimer, who mentioned me earlier and identified the fact there are two Senator Dalys. Senator Buttimer was a brilliant leader and I compliment him. I know what he said was in jest but I thank him for weaning me off the line I was on...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Supporting a Just Transition: Discussion (Resumed) (18 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: I compliment Mr. Mulvey on his report and the amount of ground that he has already covered. I come from the midlands and I would like his opinion on the following. Is he well enough resourced? Is his brief correct by virtue of the fact that the goalposts have been brought forward from 2027? Based on his report here today, his work ethic and on what he has planned, he is ideally positioned...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Teagasc Annual Report 2018: Discussion (17 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: I wish to apologise for missing the presentation due to a vote in the Seanad. I also missed the beginning of my colleagues' questions. I just have one question. If it has already been covered I will accept that. I can look it up in the transcript. How will Teagasc's advisory and research strategy have to change as a result of last week's announcements pertaining to the EU green deal? I...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: Irish Greyhound Industry: Irish Coursing Club (17 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: Going back to traceability, which I know is in its infancy and has not even come into being yet, given that the IGB will be running the model but the ICC runs the stud book, can we have more detail on how the two organisations will go about correlating the stud book and the new system of traceability?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Forestry and Climate Change: Discussion (11 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: I have questions on the research conducted by UCD. Earlier Dr. Ní Dhubháin mentioned people's attitudes to forestry. How can we change the attitude of the agricultural sector towards forestry? At the end of the day, none of these targets will be met. I have not heard anything today to convince me that anything has changed and the targets will be met. The farmers of Ireland own...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine: European Council Meeting: Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (10 Dec 2019)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Renewable Energy - Wind, Solar and Biogas: Discussion (4 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: The groups before us are all up and running. In an ideal world, how do they think we are fixed as a country with regard to skilled personnel and technological know-how in our workforce? If the groups get over their planning hurdles and are up and running, do they have the workforce required for each of the three projects? How can that problem be overcome, if it is a problem?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Renewable Energy - Wind, Solar and Biogas: Discussion (4 Dec 2019)

Paul Daly: The indication was that €1.5 billion of an investment is needed. How much of that is the industry prepared to put in?
