Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Cross-Border Healthcare Directive: Discussion (8 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank our visitors. I apologise for missing the start of the meeting and the contributions. I hope my initial question will not be too repetitive. I am still not clear around the issue of cataract treatment and hip replacement, for example, under this directive. How does it apply to ordinary citizens in terms of retaining access to healthcare in the North? I would be grateful if that...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Maith thú, a Chathaoirligh, as úsáid a bhaint as do chúpla focal. Tá ardmholadh tuillte agat. Go raibh maith agat as sin. I wish to raise yesterday's unilateral decision by the British Government to extend aspects of the grace period of the protocol.I think the Leader and colleagues would agree that things are heading in a very negative direction and it is...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas as an gcur i láthair ar maidin. Tréaslaím leis an méid atá ráite ag uachtarán Chonradh na Gaeilge ar maidin. Tá práinn ann ó thaobh na reachtaíochta seo. Ní hamháin go bhfuil sé comhaontaithe ag an dá Rialtas agus ag na páirtithe ó Thuaidh, ach tá sé de dhíth ag an...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Chathaoirleach as an chomhairle sin. I thank the Chairman for his guidance in that regard. The motion is worth looking at and I think it is worth members' consideration. I take the Chairman's guidance in regard to it. The suggestion is that the committee would write and I think we could agree that fairly rapidly.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: We will not be too taxing on the Cathaoirleach this year but, if God spares us, next year we will be putting him to the test. Mar atá ráite ag an Seanadóir Garvey cheana féin, is cúis cheiliúrtha go bhfuil tús curtha cheana féin le Seachtain na Gaeilge. Mar atá an cás le roinnt imeachtaí eile, is mór an trua go bhfuil na srianta i...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom fáilte a chur roimh an Aire. As the Minister will be aware, Sinn Féin will continue to play its part in the collective, and importantly all-island, effort in ending the Covid nightmare that our people and people throughout the world have been burdened with for over a year. On handling the virus, we take our guidance from the medical experts on the measures that are...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will not prolong the debate needlessly. I referred to all of our amendments in my earlier contribution. The purpose of amendment No. 9 is fairly clear. I just want to touch on the point made by Senator Bacik on her amendment and the Minister's concluding statement on Second Stage about the jump from 20-odd countries on the list to 32. We are seeking, as we always do in this House,...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Hear, hear.

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

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I echo the words of others by acknowledging Senator Norris's return to the House and wish him well in his recuperation. I commend the family of Margaret Keane in Coventry, England. Members may have read about the case on social media. Margaret's family had to lodge an appeal following a decision by the Consistory Court of Coventry, which initially refused an Irish-only inscription - in...

Seanad: Covid-19 (Transport): Statements (26 Feb 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Mar gheall gurb é an Aoine atá ann, b'fhéidir nach mbainfidh mé úsáid as an am ina iomláine. Tá fáilte romhat ag an Aire. I welcome the Minister. I associate myself with what Senators Dooley and Moynihan have said about front-line transportation workers. As someone who has used public transport to access this institution during the course of...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Qualifications Recognition (19 Feb 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an gCathaoirleach Gníomhach agus leis an Aire Stáit fosta as an gceist seo a ghlacadh. Tá a fhios agam go mbeidh mórán eolais aige agus aitheantais tugtha aige freisin don ábhar seo agus ar na fadhbanna atá ann fós maidir leis. The Minister of State will know that mutual recognition of professional qualifications is a live...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Qualifications Recognition (19 Feb 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Go raibh maith agat as an eolas cuimsitheach sin. As I said at the beginning of my remarks, I appreciate that this is a movable feast at the minute, and that the Minister of State is in the midst of it. What is crucial and important for the people affected is that they hear an update from the Government. However, going forward, beyond the details of what the Minister of State is...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: The EU and Irish Unity - Planning and Preparing for Constitutional Change in Ireland: Discussion (16 Feb 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank Professor Harvey and Mr. Bassett for their presentation. My question relates to the broader role of the institutions, some of which were key players in the formation and creation of the Good Friday Agreement while others are part of the outworking of the agreement itself. In the interim as we journey towards constitutional change, what role can the institutions, such as here in the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (15 Feb 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I wish to reiterate my call for statements with the Minister for Foreign Affairs on the implementation of the Irish protocol. We all agreed at the beginning of the term that we should not allow the issue of Brexit to fall off the agenda or the radar of the House. We are at a critical juncture in terms of getting information to people. The Seanad affords the opportunity to cut through some...
