Niall Ó Donnghaile: Mar atá ráite ag an Chathaoirleach, bhí sé luaite ag finnéithe Chonradh na Gaeilge an tseachtain seo caite ag an chruinniú agus luaigh mé féin ag an chruinniú gur ceart dúinn smaoineamh faoi rúin mar seo a leagan os comhair an choiste. Tá súil agam go mbeidh muid in ann iad a aontú mar gheall ar na fáthanna uilig a...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (10 Nov 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will make a quick point on Senator Pauline O'Reilly's contribution. The milk bank in the North was featured in a recent segment on the news. It has been impacted by the Covid restrictions and is seeking donations. It is encouraging mothers who can contribute to do so. The importance of this service is that it provides for babies who are sometimes very ill and very vulnerable in...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Nov 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I cannot endorse enough Senator Wall's suggestion in respect of the Changing Places facilities. We opened one in Belfast City Hall in January last year. For families caring for people with profound disabilities, just the knowledge that such a facility is there for them affords them an opportunity as families to do things together, to plan their day and to plan recreation and important...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Enforcement Powers) (Covid-19) Act 2020: Motion (6 Nov 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I welcome the Minister of State and this debate. Talking is a good thing. Reviewing is a good thing. Engaging in the parliamentary process is a good thing and that is the purpose of this amendment. It is to bring what are essentially emergency powers back to the Oireachtas in order for these institutions to have the opportunity merely to review, reassess and provide the Government, as...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: European Health Insurance Card (5 Nov 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the Minister for Foreign Affairs for addressing this Commencement matter on the European health insurance card, EHIC. To be fair to him, he is always keen to come in to address Commencement debates on this issue, so I am appreciative of that. I also acknowledge that there has been a lot of engagement on this issue in recent weeks. I noted the Minister's remarks on it at the recent...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: European Health Insurance Card (5 Nov 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the Minister for his response, which was fairly comprehensive in one sense. I am not trying to catch anybody out or trip anybody up because I believe the Minister is committed to this. As he correctly acknowledged, we are 57 days out from the end of the transition period. People need to start hearing detail and have this issue explained to them so they understand it clearly. I...

I am sure it will not be lost on people that today the Government is bringing through legislation that aims to protect the EU's financial interest...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Election of Vice Chairman (8 Oct 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am not taking the huff with anyone and want to make that clear for the record. In all sincerity, I have a great deal of investment in this committee and in the Agreement and its institutions. As such, I look forward to supporting Deputy Lawless in his role, as well as the Chairman and all of our colleagues going forward because, as was rightly acknowledged last week, this is a really...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 Oct 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ireland works best when it works together. We can see that is the case in many aspects of our lives such as sport, research and development, movements and campaigns for societal change, academia and many other fields. When it comes to the health crisis and Covid-19, it is imperative that we continue to work in unison on our planning, approaches, responses and communications. We should do...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I second the amendment.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (30 Sep 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am sure, like many of us, the Leader will have been deeply concerned and troubled by the news from Bus Éireann this week that it proposes to suspend a number of crucial and vital Expressway bus services from Dublin to a number of key locations throughout the rest of the country. As announced this week, the organisation is minded to cut services from Dublin to Belfast, Galway, Limerick...
