Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Martin Kenny: The murder of Ashling Murphy has traumatised people across the length and breadth of the country. Our hearts go out to her and her family, and all the other women who have died over the years at the hands of men. We have discussed this for the past week or so and it has come to us all that it is about behaviour and attitude. We cannot legislate for attitude but we can legislate for some...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I express my deepest condolences to the family, partner and friends of Ashling Murphy, and those in the wider community who have been devastated by her brutal murder. Listening to the public debate over the past number of days, one comment has stuck in my mind. It has been said that the issue here is not, in the first instance, the safety of women but the violence of men. Every single day,...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Brendan Howlin: This is clearly a timely and important motion for the House to debate and for every Member to have an opportunity to comment on. I commend Sinn Féin on using its Private Members' time to give us all a platform to speak tonight. On rare occasions in our nation's history, an event happens that stops people in their tracks. One such occasion clearly happened on Wednesday last in County...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Catherine Connolly: The Minister is sharing her time with Deputy Costello.

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Patrick Costello: I thank the Minister for sharing time. She mentioned the two issues, namely, the non-fatal regulation and the specific offence of stalking. I raised these matters during Questions on Promised Legislation this morning. I am glad that the Minister remains committed to driving forward in respect of both of them. While we are gathered here this evening because of the senseless murder of...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Réada Cronin: My condolences to Ashling Murphy's family and to all who loved her. She certainly lit a fire in mná na hÉireann, from Derry to Cork and from Galway to Leinster House. To her family, Ashling was just their gorgeous young woman. They wished she had just come home. All of this must be very difficult for the family. The must be a before-and-after Ireland in the aftermath of what...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Matt Carthy: I want to add my voice to the hundreds of thousands of messages of condolences to the loved ones of Ashling Murphy on her tragic death. The outpouring of grief that has followed Ashling's murder has been phenomenal. The spontaneous organisation of vigils across our cities, towns and villages, as well as the huge numbers of men, children but especially women who turned up in sympathy,...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Mairead Farrell: Our nation's attention is currently focused on violence against women due to the horrific murder of Ashling Murphy. I know that all our thoughts are with her family and loved ones. Sadly, however, this is only the most recent violent attack against a woman to horrify our nation. We have a long and shameful history regarding the treatment of women and girls in this State. We must be under...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Imelda Munster: I only have a couple of minutes. It is certainly not enough time to speak to the enormity of the problem of violence against women in Ireland. First, I wish to give my sincere condolences to the family of Ashling Murphy and to her partner and friends. Their loss is unimaginable and we are all thinking of them at this very difficult time. Since Ashling was murdered, we have been hearing...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Helen McEntee: It is true that the Ireland of today is a different country from the Ireland of the 1970s. We are more open and willing to confront issues that were previously brushed under the carpet, such as domestic, sexual and gender-based violence, and we are more willing to listen to often unpalatable truths about our society. As we all know, however, despite seismic shift in attitudes over the...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Sorca Clarke: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this motion. It is absolutely necessary that we, as women, do so, and I include myself in that. I have played by the rules. I have played by societal rules even when I knew they were not fair and placed a disproportionate burden of responsibility on me, as a woman, because from the time we are young girls, we are conditioned to develop an awareness...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Patricia Ryan: This evening, my thoughts are, in the first instance, with Ashling Murphy's family, friends, pupils and colleagues at the school, and the whole community in Tullamore who have been through an unimaginable heartbreak. The outpouring of grief for Ashling and the tens of thousands of women and girls who have shared their experience of everyday harassment and violence, and the fear of violence,...

Gender-based Violence: Motion [Private Members] (19 Jan 2022)

Denise Mitchell: Men carrying out violence against women is the reality the world over. In Ireland, it is an issue we need to tackle head on. Women in Ireland experience sexism and harassment in their everyday lives, whether in the gym, on the bus or online. Women face harassment by just being present in public spaces. The vast majority of sexually violent offenders are men and, unfortunately, a lot of...

Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2022: Second Stage (19 Jan 2022)

Cathal Crowe: It has taken some time but I am glad that, finally, the Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2022 is before Dáil Éireann. This legislation has been long awaited by many people. Over many years there have been repeated attempts to draft legislation to provide adopted people with the right to key information about their birth situation. I am a member of the Oireachtas committee which...
