Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (20 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: I commend my colleagues in Sinn Féin, who are not here today, on their colleague Deputy John Brady's questioning of the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection on JobPath. It is quite shocking that out of 206,000 JobPath applicants, only 11,333 remained in sustainable employment. Many colleagues in this House have raised issues with JobPath. We are aware that, to date,...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (19 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: Today I express my disappointment about the comments made by Deputy McDonald concerning the Police Service of Northern Ireland, PSNI. She said she would not have confidence in any current member of the PSNI senior leadership team taking the helm of the organisation. I am very disappointed and surprised by these remarks and they very much undermine the role of the PSNI. From both sides of...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: I understand the House will debate legislation in the event of a no-deal Brexit in March. Yesterday, the matter of insurance cover in a no-deal scenario was brought to our attention. Obviously, we have a basic right to travel but it transpires that the European Commission has established we will need a green card when travelling to the United Kingdom. The Minister for Transport, Tourism...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: I would like to dedicate the Order of Business today to education. We all know the maxim "mol an óige agus tiocfaidh sí, cáin an óige agus críonfaidh sí". In Ballyfermot, there are three schools merging into one. I thank the Dominicans, the De La Salle Brothers and the Sisters of Charity for their 60-year contribution to education in Ballyfermot. They have...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: I welcome two transition year students, Jamie Cunningham and Niamh Sargent, to the Visitors Gallery. I rise to my feet today to express my anger and disappointment at the runaway costs of the national children's hospital. Yesterday, we learned that the Minister for Health learned about the cost overrun in August 2018 but only shared that information with the Taoiseach and the Minister for...

Seanad: Parental Leave (Amendment) Bill 2017: Committee Stage (6 Feb 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: I agree with all Members of the House on this Bill. It is the one time we have had cross-party support and I am glad the Minister will support it. I welcome the fact that he will not oppose today's amendments. We have been inundated with emails and phone calls from members of the public on the Bill - predominantly women, as Senator Gavan said. He has been a primary care giver but the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Jan 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: Many of us on our way to the Seanad today, travelling in our cars, probably passed many nurses on picket lines. These are hardworking nurses who have braved the cold weather to fight for better pay and conditions. The facts that are before us are that nurses in this country are sometimes paid half of what their colleagues abroad are paid. In Australia, Canada, the Middle East-----

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Jan 2019)

Catherine Ardagh: Yes, because I have spoken to nurses who have said that they are paid 50% less than their colleagues who work in Australia yet they have the exact same qualifications. Yes, 50% less is half of the pay. Irish nurses are, in some instances, being paid 50% less than their colleagues working abroad who have the same qualifications. We know that before they even finish their degree and go out...
