Seanad: UK Referendum on EU Membership: Statements (13 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: The last shall be first and the first shall be last. Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire as a cur i láthair. Tá mé buartha gur chaill mé é. I am sorry I missed the Minister's contribution in the Chamber but I read through it subsequently. I will avoid going into the whole broader politics of Brexit with the Minister because we have debated that issue at length, and...

Seanad: Order of Business (18 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: On behalf of our Seanad team, I echo the words of sympathy to the Mallon clan on the loss of Gertrude. Go ndéana Dia a mhaith uirthi. Ahead of tomorrow's debate on the recognition of Irish Sign Language, will the Leader ensure we have an interpreter in the Chamber to facilitate sign on behalf of those groups and organisations which will be represented here? We heard from previous...

Seanad: Order of Business (19 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: It is hard to believe that we have almost reached the end of October and, as a result, almost at the end of the historic centenary year of 2016. This year many events have taken place up and down the country not just to remember and reflect but, hopefully, to rededicate and re-energise ourselves around the spirit and ideals of that era and the 1916 Rising. I want to draw the attention of...

Seanad: Recognition of Irish Sign Language for the Deaf Community Bill 2016: Second Stage (19 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Is cúis bróid agus sonais dom go bhfuil mé in ann ardú chun tacú leis an mBille seo inniu. A part of me thinks that maybe the rest of us would be wise to shut up and not say any more because Senator Boyhan was right: that letter very much said it all. I have been overwhelmed and very impressed by the level of correspondence to us over the past weeks, not least from...

Seanad: Recognition of Irish Sign Language for the Deaf Community Bill 2016: Second Stage (19 Oct 2016)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Implications for Good Friday Agreement of UK EU Referendum Result: Discussion (Resumed) (20 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank Mr. Sheridan and Dr. Soares for their comments. This committee has committed to having a series of engagements and meetings on the Brexit issue as it evolves. As Brexit develops it would be useful if we met the Centre of Cross Border Studies on a regular basis, given the research the organisation has undertaken. It would help our engagements to be a bit more informed or as best...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Implications for Good Friday Agreement of UK EU Referendum Result: Discussion (Resumed) (20 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am happy to change my language around that. With respect, this is not an issue of semantics. It is an issue of practical legislative mechanisms that could allow for that. I have raised the issue of citizenship with the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality at two different committees recently. I am resident in the North. I...

Seanad: Order of Business (25 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I had a lovely long weekend in Ballykissane, County Kerry, with neighbours and friends from my own parish of St. Matthew's in Ballymacarrett. We were there to remember a fellow man from our parish, Charles Monahan, who tragically lost his life on Good Friday 1916 as he went to meet Roger Casement, who was coming in on the Aud. I am sorry I did not see the Leas-Chathaoirleach when I was in...

Seanad: Order of Business (25 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I mention it as an example of the impact this is having on every fabric and aspect of people's lives and concerns, from the big economic and agricultural issues to sport, community life and business life.

Seanad: Order of Business (25 Oct 2016)

Seanad: Order of Business (26 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Yesterday in the North the Minister for Health, Ms Michelle O'Neill, MLA, launched a visionary ten year plan for her Department. Central to the ethos of the Minister is a universal health care system free at the point of delivery. The plan, Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together, came about after consideration of the report of an expert panel led by Professor Rafael Bengoa, entitled...

Seanad: Corporate Manslaughter (No. 2) Bill 2016: Second Stage (26 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Tánaiste ar ais go dtí an Teach. I see this Bill as an improvement to the law particularly because at its core it involves protecting workers and punishing those, rightly and justifiably where appropriate, who do not protect their workers in the way that they should. Given this important purpose one would think the Government would have passed such...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Recognition of Traveller Ethnicity: Discussion (26 Oct 2016)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the witnesses for the presentation. I have a number of points to make and a question to ask. I will not hit the witnesses with a load of platitudes regarding statistics. While I appreciate the statistics, I do not need to tell the witnesses how awful they are because they know better than anyone around the table the very negative impact on the Traveller community. I am a new...
