Seanad: Transport and Sport: Statements (20 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am grateful to address the issues of transport and sport. They seem unrelated, except that they share a Minister, but both need to be got right to protect our future, especially our health, social well-being and cohesion. On transport, the Minister has to admit that he is losing the battle against congestion in Dublin, as colleagues have noted. It is a nightmare for tens of thousands of...

Seanad: Inquiry into the Death of Shane O'Farrell: Statements (20 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Shane O'Farrell should not be dead. We are here not because he tragically died, because the sad reality is that people die and lose their lives every day. We are here because of the systematic failures that did not necessarily lead to Shane's death but certainly it could have been prevented had the failures not existed. I am very conscious of all of the legal language that has been used...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I do not want to prolong the work of the House, given that there is a significant amount of amendments to get through, but I wish to indicate Sinn Féin's support for this legislation and the amendments. Senator Bacik is right. On the bulk of penal reform issues, the Seanad, the Government and stakeholders have worked collaboratively and positively. That can only be a good and...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (19 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: In the spirit of Senator Black's remarks, this afternoon we gathered in the Mansion House to bid farewell to the Palestinian ambassador to Ireland, H. E. Ahmad Abdelrazek. He is retiring after six years of service in Ireland and 46 years' service to Palestine's diplomatic efforts around the world. This is a most important week for the Palestinian people, given the further devastation and...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (6 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I wish to join other colleagues who noted the passing yesterday of Fr. Des Wilson. I spoke in this House just a few months ago to mark the 70th anniversary of Fr. Des's ordination into the priesthood. Given his sad passing yesterday, the best thing we could say about Fr. Des is that he was not just a believer in the gospel of hope and liberation; he was a practitioner of the gospel of hope...

Seanad: Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Statements (6 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Tánaiste. I welcome the Tánaiste and thank him again for his ongoing and continued engagement with this House, which has been consistent throughout the course of the Brexit era. One of the great positives, as the Tánaiste knows, has been the coming together of Members in this Oireachtas around Brexit. While we have had differences of opinion and...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Nov 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom fáilte a chur roimh an Seanadóir Hackett fosta. I acknowledge and thank colleagues for their solidarity and support for our colleague, Deputy Martin Kenny. Deputy Martin Kenny will not be deterred by this, as troubling and concerning as it is. While I disagree with a lot of the sentiment expressed by Senator McDowell, I agree with him in that I want to have the...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom labhairt faoi thoscaireacht ón Seanad a bhí i mo chathair féin, Béal Feirste Cois Cuain, an tseachtain seo caite agus cé chomh dearfach agus fiúntach a bhí an toscaireacht sin. I want to reflect on last week's visit by a cross-party delegation of Senators to my home city of Belfast. It was a very positive and worthwhile engagement, building...
