Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Impact of Covid-19 on Driving Instructors: Unite the Union (18 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank the witnesses for showing up. They have put it absolutely straight to us that the stakeholders' forum is not fit for purpose. Whatever other conversations we have or whatever way we write to the RSA and the Department, we need to put on record as soon as possible that the ADIs need to be part of the wider conversation on dealing with the backlog. I will try to deal with the...

We should get that submission from Mr. Brophy and it should form part of the conversation...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Viability of and Opportunities for the Post Office Network: Discussion (16 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I thank the witnesses. They have been straight to the point. It appears we are facing an abyss with the transformation payment stopping. From the beginning of July, there will be a business model that will not work for the post office network, and it certainly will not work for individual post offices. I add my voice to much of what has been said. We all generally support what is in the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Viability of and Opportunities for the Post Office Network: Discussion (16 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: That is the outlook here. I understand that the end of July is too late. We have heard that, to a degree, some of the pain relating to the Ulster Bank closures and particularly the Bank of Ireland closures is relieved by the fact that we may have those services offered to us by the post offices. One thing that will be absolutely necessary is the concept of offering online services, whether...

There needs to be an interim solution and beyond that, we need a PSO. What would need to be put in place to facilitate post offices in...

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this issue. I thank Solidarity-People before Profit for tabling the motion. I think it is a fair ask. I agree with it in the sense that there needs to be a greater level of imagination and that we have to look on this as an opportunity to deliver for third level on the same basis that Donogh O'Malley delivered for second level education. It is fair to...

Children (Amendment) Bill 2020 [Seanad]: Second Stage (11 Mar 2021)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: I wish the Minister, Deputy McEntee, and her husband well. I am very pleased the Government has created a stopgap measure to provide her with the necessary maternity leave. I agree with previous speakers who stated that we need a solution that brings us up to date so that we can facilitate women in politics. It is 2021 but we are operating as if it was 1950 or even 1850. I wish her very...
