Ceisteanna - Questions: Protected Disclosures (18 Dec 2018)

Joan Burton: In the context of the remarks made by Deputies Howlin and Micheál Martin and the new arrangements the Government has been making for Garda oversight, it seems that the head of an Garda Síochána was very often the recipient of disclosures, which put the whistleblower in an almost impossible position. That was certainly the position in the case to which reference was made. Has...

Mattie McGrath: ...send a clear message to the people who carry out these violent evictions with cruelty and impunity. They are a third force and should not be in this State. We are a sovereign state and have An Garda Síochána and the Army, who serve us well. Nobody condones violence from any source and I certainly do not condone it, but the fact remains that people are being driven to the brink...

Rose Conway Walsh: ...living in rural areas. I commend the community on coming together and standing against this type of behaviour. I want the Minister for Justice and Equality to come to the House.

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Garda Deployment (18 Dec 2018) See 4 other results from this debate

Maria Byrne: I thank the Minister of State. I neglected to say that the community gardaí are meeting the residents tonight and have been very responsive. It is a big factor that people do not see the Garda on the ground. It is pretty much a rural area. There has been a spate of burglaries. I commend the Government on the reopening of the Garda College. It is good that there are so many extra...

Mattie McGrath: ...funds. A third force militia was operating in Roscommon last week, including, I am told, ex-UVF members from Northern Ireland. There is no place in our modern democracy for those people. We have An Garda Síochána, which we must support, and our Army if necessary. We do not need a third force acting at the behest of vulture funds and destroying people's lives. Those affected...

Simon Coveney: The examples which the Deputy has provided are why the Minister of Justice and Equality is speaking to senior gardaí to ensure they have the resources and powers they need to be able to act.

Katherine Zappone: The recommendations of the report are mainly a matter for An Garda Síochána. A relatively small portion of the report concerns Tusla.
