Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Water Services (7 Dec 2021)

Róisín Garvey: I would like to know with which Oireachtas committee I can raise this. That is if there is a recommendation in the programme for Government in that respect.

It is totally unsatisfactory that the authority...

We have not seen him because he has been working so hard. He has met with every NGO in the...

Seanad: Covid-19 and the New Measures (Enterprise, Trade and Employment): Statements (7 Dec 2021)

They have embraced most of the public health advice. It is very important that we are very clear as...

Seanad: Horticultural Peat (Temporary Measures) Bill 2021: Second Stage (30 Nov 2021)

Róisín Garvey: I welcome the Minister of State. It is so great to have the House agreed on wanting to support the horticulture industry. It is fantastic we are all agreed on that.

It is most welcome. It is...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Student Accommodation (23 Nov 2021)

We are all aware of the fact that we need to build more houses and the empty sites issue is massive.

An event...

Seanad: Children in Care and Children Leaving Care: Statements (23 Nov 2021)

Róisín Garvey: I do not envy the Minister his job. He seems to be grasping a lot of nettles these days. It is important that the he be brought before the House. I thank Senator Ruane for discussing this because children are probably the most vulnerable in society and it is good to get an update from the Minister. I thank him for some work he did on extra funding for support for the victims of domestic...
