Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Challenges facing Public Broadcasting and the broader Media Sector as a result of Covid-19: Discussion (16 Dec 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank all the witnesses for joining us today. I could not agree more. At a time when people urgently need access to factual and trustworthy information, the output of the witnesses and their colleagues is critically important to the production of such information and its consumption by readers. This is probably the most challenging time for those for whom the production of that factual,...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on the Film and Television Industry: Discussion (9 Dec 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank all the witnesses for their contributions this afternoon and for their contributions in keeping us all somewhat sane in recent months. TG4 has been especially successful at building a strong sense of Irish community around the world with its content that is, as far as I can gather, licence-free and easily distributed around the world. How do the witnesses see the significant...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on the Tourism Sector: Discussion (2 Dec 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank all of the witnesses not only for the time they have spent with us this afternoon but for the significant time they have spent in working with those involved in tourism and hospitality, shepherding them through what has been an unprecedented time for all. I have just a couple of observations to make. I suppose there is no harm in being somewhat parochial when one gets the...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on the Tourism Sector: Discussion (2 Dec 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: To be clear, will the Burren loop will be live by the upcoming season? Is that the plan?

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on Irish Dance Sector: Discussion (25 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the witnesses for their excellent opening remarks. I wholeheartedly support the case they make in describing Irish dance as an intrinsic part of our culture and a critical part of the educational offering we make to children all over the country. I come from east Galway, where Irish dancing is very much an intrinsic part of local communities. I partook in Irish dancing at an...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on Irish Dance Sector: Discussion (25 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: If a concession was to be made to allow for indoor gatherings of up to 15, which are allowed outdoors at level 3, would that be acceptable to the dance organisations? That would be a significant concession at level 3. Obviously, at level 2, teachers can revert to their normal class sizes. I am wondering if the witnesses would be supportive of that as an interim measure?

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on Irish Dance Sector: Discussion (25 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I agree.

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Impact of Covid-19 on the Arts Council: Discussion (25 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the witnesses for joining us and for the extraordinary work they have done in the past in nurturing the development of arts in Ireland, particularly the work they are doing now to support the community, which, as Mr. Rafter has pointed out, has found itself in probably the most challenging place ever in terms of being able to survive and thrive and, hopefully, come out the other end...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (19 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: The programme for Government contains a commitment to balanced regional development, in particular the delivery of sustainable transport solutions across the regions. Those transport solutions need to be sustainable from an environmental and economic perspective. We are making fundamental decisions as to how we invest in rail infrastructure, in particular in the west of Ireland over the...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Key Priorities for Sport Ireland and Impact of Covid-19 on Sports Sector: Sport Ireland (18 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I want to say heartful thanks to the witnesses and Sport Ireland for assisting so many sporting organisations both at national level and at local level in shepherding sporting participation through the pandemic on an ongoing basis. They succeeded in creating confidence and a framework within which sporting participation continues to happen in a very safe manner. That work has trickled all...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Future of Public Service Broadcasting and Impact of Covid-19 on the Media Sector: Discussion (11 Nov 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the witnesses for joining us and for outlining to us the significant challenges that they face in continuing to provide and develop the wonderful content that they produce. I have a couple of observations and questions for Mr. Lynch. He quite rightly told us earlier that one of the key elements of public service broadcasting is to nurture our cultural vitality. If any country can...

Ciarán Cannon: I thank the Minister, Deputy Martin, and the Minister of State, Deputy Chambers, for their very helpful input and the extensive support they have offered to their respective sectors. That support is built on very important engagement with people in those sectors. As a musician and somebody who has a lot of friends in the world of music, I am also engaging actively, almost daily, with many...

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Tourism Sector: Discussion (21 Oct 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank all the witnesses for the work they have done in producing this report and bringing their considerable expertise, knowledge, wisdom and passion for the industry to bear.

Joint Committee on Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht: Business of Joint Committee (14 Oct 2020)

Ciarán Cannon: I thank Ms Dorgan and her colleagues for not alone sharing some of their wisdom with us but for the consistently professional campaign that they have had under way for several months now. It has produced extraordinary dividends in a short time.
