Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: The report on the mother and baby homes published today is the fifth interim report and we have watched each one, as have the relatives of the women in the mother and baby homes. They have stuck with this over the years and many of them are now elderly and frail. Some have sadly passed on without learning what happened to their children, their brothers, sisters and even their mothers. The...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I support the amendment to the Order of Business. As Easter is almost upon us I wish everyone here a happy Easter. I will be here for the next two days but may not be able to be at the Order of Business. Senator Ó Ríordáin spoke about nurses. The deal that has been done is being put before the nurses by the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, INMO, and the Psychiatric...

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I wish to speak to the amendments to which I am a co-signatory, particularly amendment No. 21. Who is the Minister to take away the well-being and health of local residents at the stroke of a pen and absolutely dismiss their distress, physical and emotional health and well-being? In so doing he is ignoring the World Health Organization guidelines on noise, particularly at night. Amendment...

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I stand corrected in that regard, but I still think we are doing democracy a disservice. We are also doing a disservice to the residents who live in the areas surrounding Dublin Airport and the future generations who will be affected when the airport wishes to bare its teeth and expand further, which will lead to further noise infiltration to the surrounding area. Shame on the Minister. I...

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I give credit to Senator Reilly for standing up for the people in the area in which he lives. He has made what he believes is the correct decision, obviously in support of the Government, which is more than Fianna Fáil has done. I refute the notion the Minister outlined in his first contribution that we have no interest in jobs and the ripple effects on the economy from the airport....

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: Especially the one who did not.

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I want to speak on amendments Nos. 2 to 10, inclusive. Many of them seem to involve the same matter, namely, the Commission for Aviation Regulation, CAR. The appointment of a noise regulator is in keeping with EU regulations and it is required to appoint such a noise regulator in airports over a certain size. The Minister complicated the issue and he failed to appreciate basic ground rules...

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Seanad: Aircraft Noise (Dublin Airport) Regulation Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages (16 Apr 2019)

Maire Devine: I want to speak in support of Senator Norris's amendment. It is an absolute no-brainer. Residents and communities deserve the respect of each planning authority when there is a development as big as Dublin Airport in those areas, which will bring much to the area but which will also take away from the area. Respect for residents and communities is utmost and should be guiding us in...
