Ruairi Ó Murchú: I want to add my voice to those of the previous two speakers in regard to the need for any system we put together for Irish language teaching to take into account provision from naíonra level right up to third level.

Garda Siochana (Functions and Operational Areas) Bill 2021: Second Stage (22 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: We are here to discuss what is obviously a technical Bill. When I heard about the reorganisation and division, and the fact that County Louth was going to be connected with counties Cavan and Monaghan, I had a fear of losing senior gardaí and losing the focus that is needed, particularly in the huge urban settings of Dundalk and Drogheda. Anybody who has watched the news in recent...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: To follow on from the points made by Deputy Haughey regarding the corporate tax rate, the Commissioner has spoken about the fact that he believes there is a decent possibility of an international deal in this regard. He referred to the minimum effective rate. There is a 12.5% rate in Ireland. However, although France, for example, had a rate of 26.5%, in many cases there were workarounds...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I get that. There will be an attempt to deal with it within the rules, which will need to be consistently and constantly reviewed to ensure they do exactly what they say on the tin. That is vital. Mr. Gentiloni spoke about the fiscal rules and governance. I am going to take an inference from what he said and some of what has been reported to the effect that Mr. Gentiloni believes Europe...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: You could be sorry about this. My apologies beforehand. I appreciate the previous two answers.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I appreciate the answer. The Commission has already shown its want and ability to address situations as they arise. That needs to happen with respect to the Irish protocol.

The European Union has allowed for a situation where if there is a vote on Irish unity, the North, as part of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I both apologise to the Commissioner and thank him for his patience. I will follow up on what the Chair has said and on some of what the Commissioner has said himself. He framed it well in the sense that he did not refer to the usual green and digital recovery but to an equitable green and digital recovery. That is absolutely necessary given the difficulties we had during the banking...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Developments at European Union Level: Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni (20 Sep 2021)
