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

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I agree with and echo the words of previous Senators, in particular on today's launch of the Covid-19 tracking app. It will be a vital tool in keeping people safe. One of the glaring issues about the Covid-19 crisis, and preceding crises, has been the merit in the assertion that we work best when we work collaboratively together, and when we take a united and joined-up approach. Given its...

Seanad: Election of Leas-Chathaoirleach (7 Jul 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I move: "That Senator Fintan Warfield be elected Leas-Chathaoirleach." I intend to propose that Senator Fintan Warfield be elected Leas-Chathaoirleach. I dtús báire, ba mhaith liom fáilte mhór mhaith a chur roimh ár gcara, an iar-Sheanadóir Paul Coghlan ón ríocht, atá linn inniu. I always feel much better and more assured in my Seanad place when...

Seanad: Election of Leas-Chathaoirleach (7 Jul 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the Chair for that advice. Certainly, however, what I found most about Senator Buttimer was that as passionate and committed to the role of Leader as he was, that did not always put him against us in Sinn Féin or members of other parties. It sometimes put him up against members of his own party, so he treated us all equally in that role. I know he will bring, hopefully, that...

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (29 Jun 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Having known the previous Seanad, and certainly looking at the current Seanad, I may speak now before the vote is taken because I certainly do not want to take away from anyone's achievement thereafter. With the permission of Senator Norris, I will dedicate my remarks to my late friend Bobby Storey, who will be buried in Belfast tomorrow. We are thinking of Teresa, his partner, and all of...

Seanad: Election of Cathaoirleach (29 Jun 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Not today. As the Cathaoirleach said, many of us have come a long way and we have waited a long few months to get back to the Seanad Chamber and into our roles. As I said to the Cathaoirleach just before the vote, he has big shoes to fill but I know he will do so effectively and very willingly. The Sinn Féin team and I will work with him as collaboratively and as positively as...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCathaoirleach agus beidh mé chomh gasta agus is féidir liom. Gabhaim comhghairdeas leis an Aire as a ceapachán agus a hainmniú mar Aire Dlí agus Cirt agus Comhionannais. I congratulate the Minister on her appointment.

Seanad: Business of Seanad: Motion (21 Jan 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Leas-Chathaoirleach agus leis an Chathaoirleach. Ba phribhléid é a bheith faoi cheannasaíocht, faoi stiúir, faoi threoir agus, ó am go chéile, faoi smacht acu sa Seanad seo nuair a bhí sé de dhíth. I want to extend a word of thanks to the Leas-Cathaoirleach, the Cathaoirleach and all of those mentioned by colleagues...

Seanad: Business of Seanad: Motion (21 Jan 2020)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: -----but I will say it anyway. I suppose that has been my mantra since coming to this House. Sometimes I have got it right and I acknowledge and appreciate that sometimes I have got it wrong. We all need to be big enough to recognise our own failings in life, whether they are political or otherwise. It has been a great privilege to come into this institution and to be a bit of a "Nordie"...
