Seanad: Good Friday Agreement: Motion (10 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will digress slightly in my remarks because at the heart at this motion is the issue of dialogue. Let us have a dialogue because that is healthy, warranted and does no harm given the institution we are in. I listened very intently to Senator Blaney's remarks. I do not question for one second the beliefs that he holds very firm and dear, but I would never come into this institution and...

Seanad: Good Friday Agreement: Motion (10 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Nevertheless, none of us derives our Irishness from the Good Friday Agreement. It runs much deeper than that. It is as natural to us as the flow of the Liffey, the Lagan or the Lee. It enshrined for us citizenship rights which I welcome the reference to in the motion. In conclusion, I challenge the Minister of State and Government colleagues across the House. The Good Friday Agreement is...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Will the Senator take a point?

Seanad: Good Friday Agreement: Motion (10 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: The wait-and-see attitude towards Brexit is held from a position of immense privilege. There are many of us in the North who do not want to wait and see the negatives of Brexit, which we voted against.

Seanad: Good Friday Agreement: Motion (10 May 2021)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: The informed speculation in recent days that the British Government intends to legally grant an amnesty to its armed forces and to renege on the Stormont House Agreement is a retrospective licence to kill. Although this is shocking it will not come as a surprise to the thousands of relatives grieving for the loss of a relative killed by the British crown forces. The peace process in the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (7 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I second the amendment.

Seanad: European Digital Green Certificate: Statements (7 May 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ar dtús báire, cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire Stáit ar ais chuig an Teach fá choinne na díospóireachta ar na ráitis seo inniu. The European digital green certificate moves society in the right direction, but it is not a perfect solution for international travel. My colleague, Sinn Féin MEP, Chris MacManus, has extended a guarded welcome to the...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I second the amendment, seeing as it will not be pressed and on that condition.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: In the spirit of what was said by colleagues, I got my vaccine on Tuesday and I am delighted. I got my vaccine on Tuesday and my hair cut on Saturday.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Members should not be too jealous. I wish the vaccination roll-out programme in the South every success and every best wish because it is crucial that there not be too much of a disparity between what is rolled out in the North and what is rolled out in the South. A disparity works against our joint efforts in trying to battle through this. On my main point this afternoon, I thank and...

Seanad: EU Regulations (Europol): Motion (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire Stáit chuig an Seanad arís. Sinn Féin will not be opposing the passage of this motion through the Seanad today. Other colleagues have outlined eloquently all the reasons such a motion is felt to be necessary in tackling cross-border and international crime. However, we are parliamentarians and we have an obligation to scrutinise and weigh up...

Seanad: Criminal Procedure Bill 2021: Committee Stage (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I apologise to my colleagues, the Leas-Chathaoirleach and the Minister of State for arriving late to this Stage of the Bill. On a procedural point, am I correct in saying that Senators are speaking on section 1 of the Bill, as opposed to any of Senator Ward's specific amendments?

Seanad: Criminal Procedure Bill 2021: Committee Stage (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Perfect. Thank you for that clarity.

Seanad: Criminal Procedure Bill 2021: Committee Stage (26 Apr 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I am always conscious during debates like this that I am in a room full of legal practitioners or former legal practitioners. I am not nor have I ever been a legal practitioner, so I always listen with great interest and great intent to what colleagues have to say. In regard to section 1, I addressed this at the earlier Stage of the Bill in the House. I agree with colleagues around the...
