Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (1 Jul 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I agree with everything Deputy Leddin said. The pandemic unemployment payment, PUP, has been a very effective support mechanism for thousands of people who were rendered unemployed overnight. Thankfully, many of them are now exiting the PUP support because they no longer need to avail of it. However, there are thousands in the entertainment sector who will find themselves on a very...

Joint Committee on Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport And Media: Making Europe Fit for the Digital Age: EU Commissioner for Competition (23 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the Commissioner for joining us and appreciate her giving us her time today. We are, I hope, working our way slowly but surely out of a viral pandemic that has crippled Europe and the wider world. Throughout, we have become overwhelmed with misinformation. One might call it a misinformation pandemic. The after-effects of that may linger for significantly longer than will the...

Joint Committee on Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport And Media: Impact of Covid-19 on the Entertainment Sector: Music Entertainment Association of Ireland (23 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank Mr. Conboy and Mr. McGranaghan for their contributions and for being very effective representatives for the thousands of musicians and technicians who are a critically important part of our cultural output in Ireland. I have one quick observation to make and then a question to follow it. As we recover from the pandemic and begin slowly to reopen our economy, there are sections of...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Future of Media in Ireland: Discussion (16 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the members of the commission for joining us. Looking at my laptop screen here, I am filled with confidence about the calibre and the quality of the people that we have chosen to do the work of the commission. I look forward to its deliberations. Fine Gael is finalising a submission that it will make to the commission on foot of significant engagement with local media practitioners,...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Safety (3 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the Minister of State for that very helpful response. All the good things that happen in this country, the ones which make it a better place to live in with a better quality of life, happen when we see Government Departments collaborating. This happens when a good idea is grabbed with enthusiasm by those leading in the Departments, when it is brought to fruition and made happen....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Road Safety (3 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the Ceann Comhairle for allowing me to raise this issue on UN World Bicycle Day. In February last year, the European Transport Safety Council published a report on cyclist deaths across the European Union. It revealed that Ireland had recorded the highest annual increase in cyclist fatality rates among all EU member states in the past decade. In fact, our rate had risen by an...

National Recovery and Resilience Plan: Statements (2 Jun 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: We saw a very ambitious but realistic plan being published yesterday on how we return to normal. The plan is creative in suggesting that we do not return to an old normal but a reinvigorated and deeply ambitious Ireland. I want to deal with two aspects of the plan, both of which seek to support the artistic community. The first is the continued extension of the PUP all the way up to...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (26 May 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: Our programme for Government has balanced regional development at its heart. It states: "all parts of Ireland must thrive if we are to prosper as a country". Project Ireland 2040 envisages, approximately, an additional 250,000 people living in rural Ireland in the next 20 years. If that is to happen, our planning policy must show some understanding of rural Ireland and of the needs and...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 May 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: Our programme for Government contains some very significant commitments to rural transport and sustainable rural mobility. It commits to developing and implementing a sustainable rural mobility plan and to protecting and expanding regional connectivity and connectivity between towns and villages in rural Ireland. Unfortunately, what is happening in rural Ireland right now to public...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: General Scheme of the Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill 2020: Discussion (Resumed) (19 May 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I apologise that I could not be here earlier. I was speaking in the Dáil. I happen to think that the concept of social media is quite positive in that it has given us a level of communication which, in my early life, I certainly did not think would be possible in the early 21st century. I believe it does more good than harm in society. I may be unusual in that but it is a view I have...

Ciarán Cannon: I will contribute later, if I may.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (1 Apr 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I also congratulate the Tánaiste on seizing the initiative and ensuring that as people enter into the world of remote work, there is a strong legislative structure underpinning that process and protecting workers’ rights in how we move forward. Grow Remote, an entity which has essentially welled-up from within rural communities across Ireland, has identified that there are...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on the Entertainment Sector: Discussion (30 Mar 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: I am going to fly through my questions because we could spend hours talking about this fascinating subject. I thank each of the witnesses for the work they do every day to support our cultural and creative economy and I thank them for joining us today. I agree with expanding the night-time economy and with every word of what Mr. Sharpe said five minutes ago. We urgently need to look at...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (25 Mar 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: In the context of a commitment from a health Minister yesterday that he hopes that four in every five adults in Ireland can be vaccinated by the end of June and have at least one dose received based obviously on incoming suppliers, is it now time to begin moving the parameters whereby we establish or lift lockdown to something beyond infection rates or an R number, to reflect the fact that...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (24 Mar 2021)

Ciarán Cannon: We all acknowledge that the hospitality sector will be the last to recover from the pandemic and to be rebooted and restarted. The Government has established an excellent tourism recovery task force that will oversee that process and try to determine how we carry out that valuable work. We found out yesterday in an Oireachtas committee that hotels, bed and breakfast accommodation and tour...
