Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I confirm that I am in the precincts of Leinster House. Like others, I begin by thanking Catherine Corless. Without her, we would not be at this point today concerning engagement with victims and survivors. We are trying to bring about justice for all those not just associated with Tuam but also the entire mother and baby system that prevailed in Ireland for far too long. What a horrible...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: Lest it be misinterpreted, I am saying that there are levels of legality which allow for coroner assessments. In the case of someone who died on the battlefield, we know he or she died on the battlefield. We do not know how the children in mother and baby homes died. What I am saying is that there is long-established legal procedure both in Britain and on the Continent that allows, albeit...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I thank Professor Scranton.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I begin by confirming that I am in Leinster House and have been following the witness statements from the get-go. I will pick up from where the other questions and responses have led. Will Professor Murphy comment on the current capacity of the coroner system? The Covid period cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be called a normal time, but we are seeing in this period how...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs: General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill: Discussion (14 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: That is a point well made. I largely agree with what Professor Murphy is saying. Many people's lives are caught up in this, both survivors and unfortunately little babies who just are not in this world any more. They have passed on to another world, tragically. Their stories need to be told. There are 168 in Kilrush in Clare, my own county. There was an inordinate amount of deaths. In...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Update on the Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic: National Public Health Emergency Team (13 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I confirm that I am in Leinster House. I thank Dr. Glynn for joining us today. I wish to ask a number of questions. Like others, I had planned on asking about the AstraZeneca vaccine, but it has been well covered and I thank the witnesses for answering the questions thus far. I wish to mention the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, which is something that I have delved...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Update on the Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic: National Public Health Emergency Team (13 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: It must be calamitous to think that on a daily basis one has all these other member states phoning in about vaccinations, and looking for advice, figures and statistics yet only 300 staff to deal with that, to think that Europe-wide more was spent last year on a space exploration programme than on co-ordinating the European-wide effort, and that the centre is an 18-year old entity....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Update on the Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic: National Public Health Emergency Team (13 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I appreciate that, but they have to be part of the roadmap as we move forward and when the next round of considerations is made. I have one minute remaining so I will ask some brief questions. I consider the digital green certificate to be very positive. It is a pathway back to a safe resumption of international air travel. Does Dr. Glynn think Irish people can realistically look forward,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Update on the Response to the Covid-19 Pandemic: National Public Health Emergency Team (13 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: Does Dr. Glynn think foreign holidays and non-essential air travel will return over the summer? What is his opinion on that as the vaccination situation improves?

Children (Amendment) Bill 2020 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) (31 Mar 2021)

Cathal Crowe: This legislation is important and timely. My colleague, Deputy Jim O'Callaghan, has been to the fore in advancing this over the past several months. My colleague, the Minister of State, Deputy Browne, from Wexford is doing a fantastic job in the Department in progressing this legislation. The renowned British graffiti artist, Banksy, has often said that one dies twice. The first time...

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

Cathal Crowe: I have a slightly different take on aspects of this discussion. We are living every day according to NIAC, NPHET and the HSE. These entities are part of everyday parlance and every time we turn on the television or radio, we hear figures and statistics. Mother ship Europe also has a co-ordinating agency, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, ECDC, based in Stockholm. The...
