Seanad: Order of Business (17 Jan 2018)

Ivana Bacik: I would like to join in with others in expressing solidarity with Ms Joanne Hayes and her family in the context of the reopening of the case. I am glad to see it reopened. However, I do think a State apology would be appropriate. Like others, I was too young to know the details of the case at the time. I do remember in school hearing about it and being aware even then of the immensely...

Seanad: Order of Business (17 Jan 2018)

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Post-Brexit Trade Opportunities: Asia Matters (14 Dec 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I thank Mr. Murray for his clear presentation and his precise policy recommendations, which I hope the committee will support. I add my voice to those who made the points about visas, particularly in the higher education sector. This is an ongoing issue for universities and third level colleges as they try to attract students and staff from Asian countries. Mr. Martin's point about...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Irish Aid Programme Review: Discussion (Resumed) (14 Dec 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I thank the Chairman for letting me in early. I thank Mr. Drummond for his excellent presentation and commend him on all the great work. Like other members of the committee, I am very familiar with the work the ONE Foundation has been doing for such a long time. It is terrific. I also thank him for giving us such a succinct presentation on the need to ensure we move to 0.7%. As Mr....

Seanad: Special Needs Assistants: Motion (13 Dec 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I welcome the Minister to the House. I second the motion. I reiterate that we are not supporting the Government counter-motion, if that needs to be emphasised. I commend my colleague, Senator Ó Ríordáin, on moving this motion on behalf of Labour Senators. It arises from his own long experience as a teacher and principal and seeing first-hand the important role of SNAs....

I welcome the opportunity to debate PESCO, the permanent structure co-operation arrangement. I commend my colleague, Senator Higgins, on pressing for this debate which is coming rather late, given that the Dáil voted last week by 75...

Seanad: Order of Business (5 Dec 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I would like to add my voice to others in expressing concern at the failure to achieve a successful outcome at the Brexit negotiations yesterday. Anyone watching the events yesterday would have been dismayed to see what appeared to be an agreement on wording collapse with the symbolic approach of the British Government and the walking away of the DUP, which betrayed the very tenuous basis of...

Seanad: Order of Business (5 Dec 2017)

Ivana Bacik: Very heartening.

Seanad: Order of Business (30 Nov 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I join colleagues in paying tribute to our good friend and long-standing colleague, Senator Norris. I was going to say that it feels not so much like tributes as it does a sort of canonisation of Senator Norris. However, it is well deserved after 30 years and seven months, as the Cathaoirleach has said, of-----

Seanad: Order of Business (30 Nov 2017)

Ivana Bacik: I thank the Senator, I will take that. Yes, if there is a sort of secular canonisation, then that is what is going on here today, but it is well deserved. The Senator has indeed been inspirational, as others have said. It has been a real pleasure for me personally to have served alongside him for the past ten years as Senators on the Dublin University panel, and I cannot believe it has...

I thank in particular groups such as SAFE Ireland, the...
