Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-out: Update (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I confirm I am within the Leinster House campus. I thank the witnesses from NIAC for being with us today and, more importantly, for all the work they have been undertaking for the last number of months. I wish to put a number of points to Dr. Colm Henry and he decide to re-assign some of those. I represent County Clare and many people in the county are being vaccinated at the Radisson...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-out: Update (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I appreciate that. People are very savvy these days. If they have a sniff of a scam coming their way, they avoid it. Unfortunately, that is what is happening here. It is quite a serious problem. My next question is also directed at Dr. Henry. We are hearing that in the next few day the whole regime around mandatory hotel quarantine is going to change. Those who are coming into...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-out: Update (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I appreciate that. This is an important week, with an big decision to be taken, probably on Friday, in respect of allowing those people who have been vaccinated to enter the airports and disperse around the country. It is important that we nail down which vaccines are acceptable and which are not. Regardless of which vaccine one is talking about, they all have high efficacy rates. They...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-out: Update (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: May I ask, operationally, is the 60 to 69 age group ending up at the back of the queue? If members of this group have reservations, are they ending up at the back of the queue, operationally, or is that a political statement? I am just trying to ascertain that.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health: Covid-19 Vaccination Roll-out: Update (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I thank Dr Henry. Keep up the good work everyone, we really appreciate it.

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I thank the Chair for allowing me to participate. I also thank the Minister and the Minister of State. I was following this session on and off, but another meeting coincided with this one and I apologise for not being here. I thank the Minister for everything she is doing. Many positive announcements have come from her Department in recent weeks and involving a great deal of outdoor...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: That is good to hear and we need something major to bring tourists back into the country. There is a perception, which is probably warranted to an extent, across the Atlantic that Ireland is a no-go place at the moment and it is effectively because much of the world is no-go at the moment due to Covid-19. However, we need people beyond our shores to know that this is an island of welcomes...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: That is good and reassuring to hear. My last question is to the Minister of State, Deputy Chambers. Two years ago, while I was a councillor, I put down a motion proposing that Ireland would once again look at hosting an early stage of the Tour de France race. It was very successfully held in Ireland in 1998. It took two years of planning. It ran really well. They ran a circuit along the...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: Out of interest, what team does the Minister of State support?

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media: Discussion (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: Very good. We will check Twitter. I thank the Minister of State.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Engagement with Chairpersons Designate of Bus Éireann, Bus Átha Cliath and Iarnród Éireann (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: It is great to be back in the Dáil Chamber and great to see the chairs-designate before us today. Like others who have already spoken, I wholeheartedly thank them but, more important, we thank the workforce of CIÉ, Bus Éireann, Irish Rail and Dublin Bus for everything they have been doing in the past 14 months in terms of getting people from A to B safely. I wish the...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Engagement with Chairpersons Designate of Bus Éireann, Bus Átha Cliath and Iarnród Éireann (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I do not live too far from a railway and would love to board a train daily when I come up to the Dáil, but every time I look at doing so there is a problem with the schedule or something. That is my fault because Dáil sitting days can be a bit haphazard in the context of times. However, there is a lot of variance in the fares at different times. As long as the fares remain so...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Engagement with Chairpersons Designate of Bus Éireann, Bus Átha Cliath and Iarnród Éireann (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: And a rail spur to Shannon Airport perhaps as well.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport: Engagement with Chairpersons Designate of Bus Éireann, Bus Átha Cliath and Iarnród Éireann (20 Apr 2021)

Cathal Crowe: I appreciate Mr. Allen's very detailed response. In the context of seeking to revitalise Shannon Airport, the rail spur is a key component that this committee has championed. The plans are very exciting and we hope that proposal will remain a feature of them.

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...
