Ruairi Ó Murchú: I have to agree with Deputy Duncan Smith. We are in the realm of farce.

Beyond that, has he spoken to private operators about possible interim solutions for areas that...

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (31 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I welcome the Minister of State breaking down the 360 million vaccine doses. Is it possible to get a timeline on when in the second quarter they will be delivered and if we can get the specifics for this State? That would be beneficial.

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (31 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Many states across the European Union are experiencing a new wave of Covid-19. This is terribly frightening. The European Commission has admitted to the mistakes it made in procurement and we know of the issues with follow-up and contracts. It is fair to say there was an element of naivety in trusting the likes of AstraZeneca. One point on which I will agree with Boris Johnson is the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: Engagement on the Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement: Mr. David O'Sullivan (30 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank Mr. O'Sullivan for presenting himself here today. I must agree with many of the previous speakers. This comes down to the qualms and legitimate worries relating to the investment court system in particular. I fear it is being left open for corporations to argue they have possible legitimate expectations of profits. Obviously, as legislators, we want to introduce public good...

Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Revised)
Vote 31 - Transport (Revised)
(30 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: That is very important. It is the holistic solution. Some people will need a short-term solution which, obviously, we should endeavour to provide.

Sinn Féin dealt with the issue of driving instructors not too long ago. Some of...
