Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Senator Ruane got in ahead of me, but I also want to respond to Senator Craughwell's remarks.The Senator is entitled to say what he thinks. I have heard some patriarchal and patronising comment in this Chamber over the years, but I raise the Senator's contribution in particular because he lauds his previous role as a representative of a teaching union. What does he think we should be...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I appreciate the Chair's clarity and I see colleagues nodding in agreement with his assessment. While that may well be the case, the claim that this child is being exploited because she is active is an entirely different issue.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Business of Joint Committee
Integrated Education: Discussion
(26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the delegates for the presentation so far. It has been very informative and useful. I also commend the delegates on the nomination which is quite the achievement. I have every confidence in them. I had a brilliant visit to Lagan College when I was Lord Mayor of Belfast. I went to Malone College and a few others also. It was great. One knows as soon as one walks into a school...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Business of Joint Committee
Integrated Education: Discussion
(26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Yes, and I will give an example. The last thing I want to do is pit sector against sector. I am, however, talking in a frank way because it is important that a committee like this functions in that manner. I went through non-denominational education. The religious sacraments were available to people if they chose them. People from Jewish and Protestant backgrounds also attended the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Business of Joint Committee
Integrated Education: Discussion
(26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ms McNamee is correct. That was not really the case. I understand what she is saying and this is an interesting discussion. I want to return to the point made by Ms Copeland. Much of what she said in her opening presentation rang true in respect of my own experience. I was educated upstairs in the Cultúrlann before it was refurbished into the beautiful facility that it is now. We...

Integrated Education: Discussion
(26 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I agree with that and I commend that statement to every single school, no matter where it is. Senator Craughwell and I had an interesting discussion in the Seanad earlier - although he was not in the room for my contribution - about the climate we are in. I come from a school of thought that believes that regardless of where something is or what it is about, the more young people are...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Direct Provision: Discussion with Ombudsman (25 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: That might be fair warning for me not to go too far.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality: Direct Provision: Discussion with Ombudsman (25 Sep 2019)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I apologise to our visitors for missing the earlier part of their presentation. Mr. Garvey raised a point earlier about emergency accommodation in response to Deputy Connolly in mentioning that action is taken as soon as the Ombudsman's office becomes aware of an emergency accommodation centre. What is the process involved in the Ombudsman's office becoming aware?
