Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Departmental Policies (22 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Go raibh maith agat a Chathaoirligh. I thank the Minister of State for coming here today. My Commencement matter is on the need for the Taoiseach to make a statement on the establishment of a south inner city initiative to support long-term economic and social regeneration of the area, similar to the north east inner-city initiative launched in 2016. In 2016, the then Taoiseach, Enda...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Departmental Policies (22 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: The task force launched by the Taoiseach in May is related to the central area of Dublin. However, my ask today relates to residential areas in the south of the city, which is some way from the city. It is very much a different space. I take the Minister of State’s point that there might be scope in the future to transfer to the south city what is being learned in the Dublin city...

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: A Chathaoirligh, I do not think you can say this if you do not have the full details of what has gone on.

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: It might have been appropriate for you to have spoken to the people concerned beforehand-----

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Not to me.

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I was picked, but I swapped.

Seanad: Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Thank you. Apologies.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I would like to join with the sentiments of my colleague, Senator Fitzpatrick, on the anniversary of the Dublin-Monaghan bombings. These were a series of explosions which killed, maimed and ruined many lives and created intergenerational trauma which we are still seeing today. A total of 34 innocent lives, including a full-term unborn child, were taken that day. It was probably one of the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Foreign Affairs Council, UN Matters and Individually Tailored Partnership Programme with NATO: Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs (14 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: The Deputy has been greatly indulged and there are a lot of other people who want to ask questions.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Foreign Affairs Council, UN Matters and Individually Tailored Partnership Programme with NATO: Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs (14 May 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Go raibh maith agat. I know the Tánaiste has other commitments so I will be very brief. I thank him for attending and for being very candid with us. I also thank the officials for opening the Department to us. Like the majority of Irish people, we support the Tánaiste's narrative and beliefs when it comes to the crisis in the Middle East. He outlined the huge amount of work he...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I thank the witnesses for coming in today. I want to be clear on my understanding. The Irish Emergency Alliance is a depository for funds, rather than being actually on the ground. Is that correct?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Yes, but the organisation itself is not on the ground though. Is that correct?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I am just trying to understand whether the Irish Emergency Alliance itself is represented on the ground or whether funds are given to the various agencies. The Irish Emergency Alliance is not directly on the ground.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: Yes, but the Irish Emergency Alliance does not. I am trying to figure out whether there is duplication of staff on the ground. Obviously there is a huge amount of trust in all the organisations such as Concern, UNICEF and Trócaire. As politicians, people come to us to ask who they should give money to. We find it hard to pick the best one. So many organisations appear before this...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: How does the Irish Emergency Alliance plan to distribute the funds? Is it based on how many members an organisation has?

Catherine Ardagh: I thank Mr. Casey.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Emergency Alliance: Discussion (23 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: To go back to a previous point, if a small charity wishes to join, does the Irish Emergency Alliance require a certain revenue stream or certain standards? Do smaller charities not get to join the club?

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Cancer Services (17 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I thank the Minister of State for attending the Chamber in the stead of the Minister, Deputy Donnelly. As we know, earlier in the week, a group of prominent oncologists wrote to the Taoiseach outlining the crucial need for new and recurrent multi-annual funding to the national cancer control programme in 2024 and to commit to ring-fenced funding to enable full delivery of the National Cancer...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Cancer Services (17 Apr 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I also welcome the children from the primary school. It shows that our national cancer strategy has been hugely effective but we can always do more, particularly with regard to screening. It would be great to see the extension of lung cancer screening programmes. Every person we treat requires a yearly scan post treatment and when he or she is in remission, so it is so important we put the...

Seanad: Health (Termination of Pregnancy Services) (Safe Access Zones) Bill 2023: Committee Stage (27 Feb 2024)

Catherine Ardagh: I will speak to this section of the Bill. I thank the Minister for coming into the Chamber and bringing this legislation to Committee Stage. I was not able to contribute on Second Stage. This legislation is part of the programme for Government. Ultimately, it allows for safe access, dignity and privacy to those availing of termination of pregnancy services. The legislation will create...
