Seanad: Order of Business (28 Sep 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Mar a dúirt roinnt daoine eile cheana féin, tá sé thar a bheith maith a bheith ar ais chun na cúrsaí seo a phlé inniu. I want to draw the attention of the Leader and Members to the welcome news of an agreement that was reached in north Belfast relating to outstanding contentious parades between the Crumlin and Ardoyne residents association and local lodges...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Irish Sign Language: Irish Deaf Society (28 Sep 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the witnesses for their comprehensive and insightful presentation. I believe all Members will agree with them on the issues deaf people face in respect of access to services and service provision. Is Mr. Byrne with the Irish Deaf Society or have his services been provided by the Oireachtas?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Irish Sign Language: Irish Deaf Society (28 Sep 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: In bringing Mr. Byrne with them, the witnesses have chosen well. I was trying to expand on Senator Daly's point that lessons do not appear to have been learned from previous experiences of visiting the Oireachtas. Members do not need legislation to take action on this issue, notwithstanding the importance of the Bill, which certainly has my support. I have a technical question on the...

Seanad: Address by An Taoiseach (Resumed) (29 Sep 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: An uair deireanach a bhí an Taoiseach agus mé féin os comhair a chéile, bhíomar i bparlús an ardmhéara i mBéal Feirste. Seo muid anois in Seanad Éireann agus tá sé deas an Taoiseach a fheiceáil. Ciorcal mór an tsaoil a chuirtear ar sin i gColáiste Feirste, seanscoil seo agamsa. I welcome the Taoiseach's commitment this...

Seanad: Order of Business (4 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Caithfidh mé mo leithscéal a ghabháil leis an gCeannaire ónar luaigh mé an t-ábhar seo an tseachtain seo caite. Nuair a thug sé a fhreagra, bhí orm imeacht ón Seomra. Léigh mé siar ar an méid a bhí ráite aige agus gabhaim buíochas leis as sin. Last week I referred to the promising agreement reached between the...

Seanad: Order of Business (4 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Fr. Gary has been resolute and steadfast in his leadership, not just the contentious parades issue. He has been a great friend to many of us. He has been a great friend to the process of reconciliation and peace building in the North. What we saw manifest on the streets on Saturday morning in no way represents the people of Ardoyne. They are a very proud, good and far-sighted community...

Seanad: Order of Business (4 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Fr. Gary has our steadfast and resolute support going forward in his new endeavours. Both Houses must send the message that they support the ongoing process of dialogue and resolution in that part of Belfast.

Seanad: UK Referendum on EU Membership: Statements (5 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: When I engage with the Minister and his colleagues in government on issues such as this, I do not do so on a partisan basis, but because of the very real concern that exists across this island on the vote by England and Wales to drag the United Kingdom out the European Union against its will. The Minister conceded at a meeting of the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement committee that...

Seanad: UK Referendum on EU Membership: Statements (5 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I apologise, but I hope Senator Ó Ríordáin will consider the point that is being made as opposed to using this issue which is of such severity to try to score cheap party political points, he and his party will think first and foremost of what is in the best interest of Ireland.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2016: Minister for Justice and Equality (5 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I apologise to the Minister for missing the first part of her presentation this morning. Brexit has been touched on slightly. Regardless of whether we have a hard or soft Border, many of us do not want a Border at all. Certainly, the people of the North voted to remain and it should form the central component in all of our considerations here whether that is negotiating north, south,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Estimates for Public Services 2016: Minister for Justice and Equality (5 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am glad and heartened to hear that. However, with the greatest respect, it is not within the Minister's gift to make that commitment. The difficulty, as mentioned by various Ministers and members of the Government at committees, is that a hard Border would present obvious infrastructural, political and social problems. That includes issues of policing and justice. Comments from the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Proposal on Matrimonial Matters, Parental Responsibility and Child Abduction: Motion (5 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: It is a good move but, in line with my previous contribution, the obvious problem of Brexit immediately presents itself, specifically whether the UK will be compliant within this landmass, for example, people running with their children from Lifford to Strabane. I am not trying to be facetious, but what overt and immediate problems can the Tánaiste foresee as a result of Brexit, in...

Seanad: Order of Business (6 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Déanfaidh mé mo dhícheall a bheith chomh ghasta agus gur féidir. When the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade was here yesterday, I referenced Modeling Irish Reunification, a major piece of research commissioned by the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, into the economics of Irish unity. That report has had some limited coverage in this State over recent...

Seanad: Order of Business (6 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Hear, hear.

Seanad: Order of Business (11 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ná bí buartha, a Chathaoirligh. Gabh mo leithscéal, bhí mé i mo chodladh ansin. Communities along the Border mobilised-----
