Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2022: Second Stage (Resumed) (28 Apr 2022)

Mattie McGrath: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak on the Bill. It is very loose and very weak and, unfortunately, it is not doing what it says on the tin or what it was meant to say on the tin. The Minister needs to get that opener for the tin and open it, because we know what happens to the fruit inside if it is left too long - it goes out of date. We are stale. Mention was made of a...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (24 Nov 2020)

Regina Doherty: It needs to be called out for exactly what it is. We need to move heaven and earth in this House and in the Dáil, along with our Government and Cabinet colleagues, to make sure that we do something about it in this year of everything else that has gone horribly wrong, so that we can have done something decent before the year ends. I thank my colleagues for bringing it up. The Minister...

Commission of Investigation (Mother and Baby Homes and certain related Matters) Records, and another Matter, Bill 2020 [Seanad]: Second Stage (21 Oct 2020)

John Lahart: The problem with the experience of abuse from the perspective of those who have been abused is that when it happens - I refer specifically to the experience of the women in the mother and baby homes – it appears that there is a tolerance level for it and that it is tolerated by the institution in which it happens. Clearly, it was tolerated with a few notable, kindly exceptions. That...

Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Second Stage (Resumed) (29 Jun 2017)

Billy Kelleher: I welcome the opportunity to speak on this Bill. It is disappointing that we are not speaking in a more unified voice on this legislation, which in a way is important, because we are talking about appointments to the Judiciary and given that an earlier Bill, published by Deputy O'Callaghan, addressed many of the issues that were of concern regarding the appointment of judges. Two issues are...

Government Appeal of European Commission Decision on State Aid to Apple: Motion (7 Sep 2016)

Mick Wallace: Many people in Ireland would be of the opinion that this place here - the bubble that is Leinster House - is a bit disconnected from the real world. No two recent issues emphasise that as much as the Apple tax issue and the NAMA scandal. Richard Murphy, a professor of practice in international political economy in City University in London also happens to be a director of the Tax Justice...

Legal Services Regulation Bill 2011: From the Seanad (9 Dec 2015)

Alan Shatter: I would like to start off by saying I am delighted that the Bill is back in the Dáil from the Seanad. I want to say that a large number of amendments being incorporated in the Bill were envisaged in my time as Minister. I am delighted they are in it. A vast amount of work was undertaken on the Bill during my time and has been undertaken during the current Minister's time to get to the...

Northern Ireland: Statements (3 Nov 2015)

Brendan Smith: Each speaker in this debate has referred to the need to deal with the legacy of the past. Last Sunday in my constituency in County Monaghan a mass was celebrated for the late Columba McVeigh, a young man who was taken away and brutally murdered by thugs, criminals and murderers masquerading as republicans. That mass was celebrated by Fr. Sean Nolan in the Church of the Sacred Heart in...

Credit Reporting Bill 2012: Second Stage (28 Mar 2013)

Mattie McGrath: I too welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate on this Bill. The Minister, Deputy Noonan, and Acting Chairman, Deputy Jack Wall, are, like me, from rural constituencies. If ever there was a case of closing the stable door when the horse has bolted this is it. Not only has the horse bolted, it has been to Cheltenham, Aintree and other places in the world and has probably at this...

Europol Bill 2012: Second Stage (4 Oct 2012)

Finian McGrath: I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on the Europol Bill 2012. In recent days with the slaughter on our streets and the gangland murders, it is important we all see the European and international dimension to these crimes. This Bill is an important part of the strategy to tackle crime in Ireland and across the European Union. It is important to point out that this is not about...

Seanad: Report by Commission of Investigation into Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin: Statements (Resumed) (9 Dec 2009)

Jerry Buttimer: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire Stáit. The speeches this morning have been among the best I have heard in the House. I say this as one who spent five years as a seminarian in the 1980s until 1990, as a regular Mass-goer and as one who has great faith and belief in God and religion. The Murphy and Ryan reports leave a sense of anger, bewilderment and need for repentance by the church. We...

Foreshore and Dumping at Sea (Amendment) Bill 2009 [Seanad]: Second Stage (3 Dec 2009)

Michael D Higgins: I welcome the opportunity of speaking on this legislation. I appreciate that there are many useful proposals in the Bill before us, but is it sufficient to deal with the possibilities and prospects of foreshore development? I have to conclude that it is not. I recognise and support many of the practical administrative proposals in the Bill, but it misses some fundamental issues of...

Ryan Report on the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse: Motion (Resumed) (11 Jun 2009)

Michael Kennedy: I appreciate the opportunity to speak on this issue. I regret we could not address the Ryan report in the format originally proposed yesterday. The postponement of the discussion from yesterday's business was regrettable because it served to render the victims of abuse once again in doubt as to this House's commitment to them. Let me state irrevocably, nothing could be further from the...

Killing of Paul Quinn: Statements (7 Feb 2008)

Fergus O'Dowd: I welcome this debate. It is very important that it take place in this Chamber. With no disrespect to the Minister of State, Deputy Seán Power, I would have believed this debate warranted the presence of a senior Minister for its full duration. The inquiry into the murder has led to very serious allegations which, if true, will have significant and serious ramifications north and south of...
