Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (8 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuireann sé gliondar ar mo chroí tacú leis an moladh atá déanta ag an Seanadóir Ó Clochartaigh maidir le hainmniú Rose Conway-Walsh mar Chathaoirleach ar an Seanad. I support Senator Ó Clochartaigh's nomination of Senator Rose Conway-Walsh. I do so very proudly as a Northern voice in this institution. Senator Norris, in his impassioned...

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (8 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom comhghairdeas a ghabháil leat, a Chathaoirligh. Cuireann sé gliondar i mó chroí a chluinstin go bhfuil tú ag iarraidh níos mó Ghaeilge a úsáid anseo agus an teanga a chur chun cinn. I want to congratulate the Cathaoirleach on his election and I look forward to working with him during the coming Seanad term. There is much diversity...

Seanad: Order of Business (15 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I have just one matter to raise. However, on listening to the contribution on Brexit from a Fianna Fáil colleague, I note I am in the unique position of having a vote in that referendum, which I will use to put Ireland first by voting to remain. This is because, in the first instance, that is the best thing for our national interest and our interest as an island nation. There is, of...

Seanad: Order of Business (15 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Hear, hear.

Seanad: Offences against the State (Amendment) Act 1998: Motion (15 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire Stáit as teacht isteach chun labhairt linn inniu. Beidh mise leanúnach le seasamh Shinn Féin maidir leis an ábhar seo agus ar ndóigh beidh muid ag caitheamh vóta in éadain na moltaí atá os ár gcomhair inniu. As the Minister of State knows, criminality is a scourge on our communities. All parties across...

Seanad: Poverty and Homelessness: Motion (15 Jun 2016)

Seanad: Order of Business (16 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I endorse the request to invite the North's Finance Minister, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir, to make a presentation to the House. I have great personal admiration and respect for Máirtín Ó Muilleoir. His passion for people, equality, investment and prosperity is palpable. As a whirlwind of politics and human endeavour, it would be good to have him here. Is Gael go...

Seanad: Order of Business (21 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Éirím chun tacú leis an méid atá ráite ag mo chomhghleacaí, an Seanadóir Conway-Walsh. I support the contribution of my colleague, Senator Rose Conway-Walsh, and ask the Leader to maintain the pressure on his Government colleagues and all Members of the Oireachtas on Thursday's Brexit referendum. I will leave this institution on Thursday after the...

Seanad: Order of Business (21 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: If he does, he would ask us to doff the cap, bend the knee and crawl back into a British Commonwealth. It was a shameful contribution and I hope we will all treat it with the contempt it deserves.

Seanad: Health: Statements (21 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am grateful for the opportunity to address to some of the issues contained in the plan. I was wondering, given all the health care professionals in the Chamber, if one of them could prescribe me with some antihistamines because it is hay fever season and I am struggling. Hopefully, I will get through this. One of the main issues of concern I have regarding the Minister's plan is the lack...

Seanad: Order of Business (22 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Like some Senators.

Seanad: Order of Business (22 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Go raibh maith agat, a Chathaoirligh, agus tráthnóna maith duit. Ní raibh mé ag dúil le bheith in airde chomh luath seo. Tá cúrsaí sláinte luaite ag a lán daoine le linn na díospóireachta seo ar maidin. Is léir gur ábhar thar a bheith tábhachtach agus thar a bheith leathan atá i gceist i gcomhthéacs na...

Seanad: EU-UK Relations: Statements (22 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire as ucht a bheith anseo linn chun an t-ábhar seo a phléigh. Tá sé pléite againn le cúpla lá anuas ach sílim go bhfuil sé iontach maith agus iontach dearfach go bhfuil an seal againn le díriú isteach ar an ábhar tábhachtach seo fá choinne mhuintir na hÉireann san iomlán. I thank...

Seanad: Order of Business (23 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Éirím le labhairt faoin bhua aréir. Tá sé ráite ag a lán daoine cheana féin. I wish to be associated with the remarks made in congratulating the Irish team on the win last night. Senator Kieran O'Donnell's proposal is interesting because it is important that we have an opportunity to honour and recognise the achievements of the two teams and, in...

Seanad: Order of Business (23 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: It is a good proposal and I support it. Let me expand on the congratulations. Important points have been made about health issues and I suppose the darker side of the culture associated with sport. A discussion worth having is how we can utilise sport development - the Minister could be invited to the House for a debate on the issue - in health promotion because the two naturally...

Seanad: Order of Business (23 Jun 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Imagine that.
