Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) (25 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Climate action, or more particularly, climate inaction is probably the most pressing issue facing humanity. Prior to the arrival of the pandemic, the debate about climate action had the status of a college debate especially for those not closely involved in it and whole positions of authority in Government or influence in business - swot up on the facts, make an impressive and passionate...

Seanad: Offences against the State Act 1998 and Criminal Justice (Amendment) Act 2009: Motions (22 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire fásta. This is my first opportunity to engage with Deputy Humphreys in her role as Minister for Justice. I welcome her to the House. Today's debate provides us with an opportunity to assess the current state of the capacity of the Oireachtas, the judicial system and the policing system to deliver on the most fundamental objective of all three...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (21 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ar dtús báire fáilte, cuirim fáilte roimh an chéim shuntasach agus tábhachtach a glacadh an tseachtain seo caite i dtaca le reachtaíocht Ghaeilge ó Thuaidh. Seo reachtaíocht ar a bhfuilimid ag fanacht le tamall maith, le blianta fada anuas, agus is dea-scéal é go raibh muid in ann é seo a bhaint amach. I will begin my remarks by...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Perjury and Related Offences) Bill 2018: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Leas-Chathaoirleach agus ba mhaith liom tréaslú leis an méid a bhí le rá aige agus ag comhghleacaithe eile faoin iarSheanadóir Pádraig Ó Céidigh mar tá ardmholadh tuillte aige. Is cuimhin liom an chaint ar an mBille seo in 2018 nuair a phléamar é sa Seanad an uair dheireanach agus dúirt mé gur...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Perjury and Related Offences) Bill 2018: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: In deference to the guidance of the Leas-Chathaoirleach and the procedure, I do not need to say a great deal more other than to welcome the return of the Bill and hope it will be successfully concluded in this House today.

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Perjury and Related Offences) Bill 2018: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I suggest that Senator Davitt goes for it.

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will be very brief because I am conscious I spoke at the-----

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Ireland's Future (Resumed) (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Can I chance my arm? Is my connection any better? I think I may have resolved the issue.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Ireland's Future (Resumed) (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I think the problem was something to do with my earphones. I was listening in a busy party room. They will just have to hear it now. As I am conscious that I made a few points at the previous meeting, I will not eat into the time too much. Like other colleagues, I want to take the opportunity to welcome our guests back and to thank them for what has been a much more thoughtful and...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Trade and Co-operation Agreement, Northern Ireland Protocol, and EU-UK Relationships post Brexit: Commissioner Mairead McGuinness (15 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I apologise for missing the first part of the Commissioner's presentation. I am in the convention centre. It is probably easier to get the technological side of things sorted in Brussels than it is in the convention centre, but sin scéal eile. I did hear the Commissioner reiterate a message of regret regarding Brexit and the fallout from it. As someone who comes from and lives in the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I want to acknowledge and welcome the announcement earlier today from the First Ministers in the North that they have secured agreement from the Government of Mauritius to re-examine the investigation of the murder of Michaela McAreavey. It is hard to believe that it took place ten years ago. For a decade now, John, the McAreavey and Harte families have been campaigning for justice for...

Seanad: Counterfeiting Bill 2020: Second Stage (14 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire Stáit. I will not needlessly delay the House or the passage of this Stage other than to say I share the concerns and regret of some colleagues about the delay in the Bill coming before the House. A number of colleagues also raised the issue of new forms of criminality with respect to finances and how way we adapt to counterfeiting given the increasing...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on the Food and Drink Industry: Discussion (14 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank and welcome our guests. I also welcome the very firm commitment to the protocol that they have expressed. I am not entirely surprised by that. I acknowledge that the protocol is by no means perfect, but I think all present can agree it was certainly the least worst option for a range of sectors for a range of reasons. I listened to our guests with interest because I am by no means...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Rail Connectivity Post Brexit: Aughey Screens (14 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank Mr. Aughey for the presentation. It was really useful. The historical and generational neglect of the broader north-west region, including its transport and infrastructure, is so stark when seen in the terms presented. Significant work has been done on the Dublin–Belfast economic corridor. There was a major conference just a few weeks ago that brought the councils along...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Brexit Issues: Discussion (8 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis na Feisirí. I welcome the opportunity to hear from and engage with our MEP colleagues this afternoon. As others have said, the more of these kinds of discussions, the better. It is not the fault of our MEP colleagues but the stark issue for me is the lack of representation for a citizen like me and the many hundreds of thousands of citizens like me in the...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Brexit Issues: Discussion (8 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Will Ms Walsh send me that information directly?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Ireland's Future (1 Jun 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas le Niall Murphy as an chur i láthair cuimsitheach atá leagtha amach aige ar maidin. Bhí sé iontach maith. Gabhaim buíochas leis freisin as teacht os comhair an choiste. Mr. Murphy made a compelling presentation on the sheer volume of work that Ireland's Future has been involved in. The research it has been doing leaves so many others in its...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (31 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I welcome the change to this week's Order of Business to allow for the continuation of Committee Stage of the Affordable Housing Bill on Friday. The arrangement is a helpful and positive move given the level of debate that is required and the amount of amendments that have been submitted. I recognise the historic vote in the Dáil last week with the passage of the motion on Palestine....
