Frank Feighan: ...bottled it and years later came into the Dáil. That is recorded in a book, possibly one about the Kerry landings but I am not sure. I like to put little things like that on the record sometimes.

Public Accounts Committee: Business of Committee (21 Oct 2021)

...I draw attention to a case of significant non-compliant procurement in that case. This related to an ICT contract to develop a system for use by TG4 but it was not competitively procured. No. 5 is the Social Insurance Fund and it is quite a significant account. I can see that there is a typo there. The turnover of the fund should be €14.8 billion not €14.8 million....

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Home Care Packages (19 Oct 2021)

Mary Butler: .... All I ever want to do is listen to the voice and choice of older people and make sure we can support them with the correct wrap-around supports at home. As I have said, we are spending €666 million on home care every year. That is the budget. That was increased by €150 million this year. To have the budget but to be short of carers is very disappointing. We are...
