Covid-19 (Transport): Statements (23 Sep 2020)

Violet Wynne: We have been flagging transport issues in the House for months now. Transport was severely impacted by the difficulties of Covid-19, but people want to hear solutions and action. To date, we have seen bus routes cancelled or reduced in capacity, the total collapse of the aviation sector and serious issues exposed in our school transport scheme. Locally, in my constituency of Clare, I have...

EU-UK Negotiations on Brexit: Statements (24 Sep 2020)

Violet Wynne: I will use this time to address the issues caused by Brexit here and across the world. In June 2016, England and Wales voted to leave the European Union and this vote would change the landscape of the EU, the UK and Ireland for years to come. In effect, the North of Ireland and Scotland were forced out of the EU against the will of their people. Four years on, we are still talking about...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Healthcare Policy (24 Sep 2020)

Violet Wynne: I appreciate the Minister of State's presence here. The Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly, needs to look into this matter personally.

Warm winter gardens could be considered for nursing homes. We are social creatures after all, and...

Violet Wynne: I am pleased to be able to speak on this motion and to outline my sheer disgust that this statutory instrument was signed into law by the Taoiseach in the absence of his second Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine. While I understand that the Minister was not sitting in that seat when this statutory instrument was signed at the end of August I feel that he and his party have not...

Forestry (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2020 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) (30 Sep 2020)

Violet Wynne: We are again debating a Bill representing a reaction to issues that have been allowed to develop rather than being nipped in the bud and dealt with head-on when they first cropped up. The issues facing the forestry industry have long been mooted and were mentioned in an article in the Irish Farmers' Journalas long ago as December 2019. As per usual, when questioned about this in May, the...

Roadmap for Living with Covid-19: Statements (1 Oct 2020)

Violet Wynne: I would like to address the House briefly on the new Covid roadmap announced by the Government a number of days ago. We all appreciate that this framework was needed and that it is a roadmap for living with the virus over the coming months. However, it quickly became clear that the announcement was not as clear as was hoped. From day one, we heard Dublin was being placed on a type of level...

Disability Services: Motion [Private Members] (6 Oct 2020)

Violet Wynne: The Minister of State announced €10 million for disability services. That is shameful, as it falls well short of the money required to properly fund and resource the sector. Since the election I have been contacted by several people who are experiencing serious issues in access to housing, healthcare and disability services. It has been truly appalling. Just last week, I again...

River Shannon Management Agency Bill 2020: First Stage (7 Oct 2020)

Violet Wynne: I wish to bring the perspective of the residents who endure the constant flooding that happens in their areas, particularly, the residents of Springfield, Clonlara.

These people endure extreme stress and some would call it trauma. We have had...
