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?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Charlie McConalogue: I assure the Deputy that there is a very bright and secure future for the sector. It is a really important part of the overall agrifood sector. It is one I want to support and work with. There are challenges. Poultry farmers affected by diseases that do not automatically qualify for compensation and who must cull their flocks naturally incur massive financial costs. I had a very...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Leis sin, táimid tagtha go dtí deireadh gnó na seachtaine. Tá an Dáil ar athló go dtí 10 a.m., Dé Céadaoin, 21 Aibreán 2021. Idir an dá linn, guím Cásca beannaithe ar gach duine.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

The Dáil adjourned at at 6.53 p.m. until 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 21 April 2021.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Poultry Industry

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: The fourth and final important matter selected has been raised by Deputy Niamh Smyth, who wishes to discuss the need for co-financed funding for a scheme to support the poultry sector in counties Cavan and Monaghan. The Minister might give us a few bob around the rest of the country as well, if he can.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Niamh Smyth: I thank the Minister for coming to the House at such a late hour to discuss this very important issue, which I appreciate. The Minister will be more than familiar with the Hennessy report. My question relates to its findings and recommendations on which the Government might act. The poultry industry is of particular importance in my constituency of Cavan-Monaghan, as it is in many places...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Charlie McConalogue: I thank Deputy Niamh Smyth for raising this issue, which is particularly important in her constituency of Cavan-Monaghan, which is the heartland of the poultry sector nationally. At the outset, I want to pay tribute to the sector. The poultry sector has an annual output of more than €610 million. It often does not get the recognition it deserves for the massive contribution it...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Poultry Industry (1 Apr 2021)

Niamh Smyth: I appreciate the Minister's comprehensive reply. I will get down to the nuts and bolts of the funding being sought, which is €2.5 million spread over two years. In terms of the overall 2021 agriculture budget, that might seem quite small. Therefore, I hope that when the Minister sits down with his officials, that kind of finance can be put into it. I am not overstating the matter...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Banking Sector (1 Apr 2021)

Seán Fleming: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. As she is aware, the FSU has suggested the establishment of a banking forum involving all relevant stakeholders coming together to discuss the future of banking in Ireland. When the Minister for Finance met the FSU last December, he highlighted that he did not think that our Department should participate in such a forum. His concern in this...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Banking Sector (1 Apr 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I thank the Minister of State for his reply. Not to be coy about this but I see a banking forum as a first step to talking about public banking, something for which Green Party has pushed for a long time. It would speak to issues around regional access to banking. It is something to which 21 countries in Europe have access, but we do not. We do not have that level of competition or choice...
