Covid-19, Mental Health and Older People: Statements (29 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I want to raise the case of a 13-year-old girl in Dundalk who has been in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital for approximately seven weeks. She is under the care of CAMHS and Louth Meath mental health services, which have done all they can to help her. It is an acute situation. She has what I will call an eating disorder, possibly combined with other factors. She has been awaiting acute...

Covid-19, Mental Health and Older People: Statements (29 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I appreciate that. I have sent on the details of the case and they should have landed in the Minister of State's office. I was dealing with the HSE and, in particular, Louth Meath mental health services. My understanding is that they have done everything they can and there is a level of frustration on their part. I would really appreciate it if the Minister of State could bring any...

[22457/21]

Criminal Justice (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (28 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: We have already stated we will support the Bill. It is a technical Bill that is absolutely necessary from the point of view of dealing with constitutional issues. Deputy Howlin spoke earlier about mandatory sentencing, which people sometimes believe is a panacea. I will deal with interventions that are necessary in our communities. This is nothing new as I have raised these issues...

Planning and Development, Heritage and Broadcasting (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (28 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: This happened slightly faster than I anticipated. We are dealing with a number of issues. This is obviously a technical Bill. We all support it since it is necessary. A number of Deputies have already spoken about heritage. We welcome that much work is done by bodies on protecting heritage sites and ensuring continuity of such but there are difficulties. It is a problem that we have...

Proceeds of Crime (Investment in Disadvantaged Communities) (Amendment) Bill 2021: First Stage (28 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: This legislation is straightforward and there is widespread support for the idea behind it. We also welcome the Government's idea of a community safety innovation fund. We have been dealing with a drugs pandemic for a considerable time. While it may impact across society, it particularly affects working-class areas, such as those in my own area in Dundalk. In the past fortnight, I have...

Residential Tenancies (Student Rents and Other Protections) (Covid-19) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (28 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Before I start my contribution, republicans in Dundalk are now saying farewell to Francie Doran, a man from the North. Like him, many people from Belfast settled in Dundalk due to the conflict and they played a significant role in republican and community activism. My thoughts are with Marion and his family and I thought I needed to make mention of it. I commend Deputies Ó Broin...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: EU Protocol on Northern Ireland-Ireland: Engagement with the Minister for Foreign Affairs (27 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I will revisit the trust issue between the British Government and the European Union. This was made much worse by the British Government's unilateral action on the grace periods. Enough voice has been given to removing barnacles and sandpapering the Irish protocol. I accept what the Minister said, that there is a read on it that it is Boris Johnson saying we need to streamline the Irish...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: EU Protocol on Northern Ireland-Ireland: Engagement with the Minister for Foreign Affairs (27 Apr 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I was only going to note the positives at the end of the Minister's contribution, as the business community is up for finding solutions with the Irish protocol rather than looking for it to be scrapped. In fairness, I probably threw far too many questions at him. How does he foresee benefits from the TCA panning out? We have spoken about the EU-British Partnership Council and the 23 added...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: EU Protocol on Northern Ireland-Ireland: Engagement with the Minister for Foreign Affairs (27 Apr 2021)
