Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (13 Jul 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: I thank the Taoiseach for his comprehensive update on what was discussed at the European Council. None of us is surprised that the Russian aggression in Ukraine and the resulting outcomes dominated much of the meeting.

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (13 Jul 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: I heard an informed and nuanced contribution from Deputy Conway-Walsh. I do not always hear that nuance or honesty in some communications.

Post-European Council Meeting: Statements (13 Jul 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: We are seeing that in particular in the Horn of Africa. Deputy Boyd Barrett's glib commentary in the face of what is unfolding in the Horn of Africa is misplaced.

Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation (6 Jul 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: I see from media reports yesterday that the Commission on Taxation and Welfare has completed its work and submitted its report, which presumably sits on the Minister's desk at the minute. Again from media reports, I see that it has identified the upcoming hole in the finances that will be caused by decreasing motor tax revenues in the future.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection: General Scheme of the Charities (Amendment) Bill 2022: Discussion (6 Jul 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: I echo Deputy Paul Donnelly's comments. There is a huge amount in the Bill that is welcome. The Minister of State used the word "proportionate" a lot in his opening statement.
