Pa Daly: I was contacted by a man called James Sugrue, from Ballybunnion, and I will raise his story with the Tánaiste on his behalf. He and two of his brothers were boarded out at the mercy of the State and abandoned at the county home in Killarney where they suffered a horrendous experience. Mr. Sugrue spoke to An Taoiseach a few months ago and was promised that his case, and the cases of...

Seanad: Nursing Homes Support Scheme (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (15 Jul 2021)

Mark Wall: I welcome the Minister of State to the House. The Labour Party will support the Bill. I am sure like many Members, not a week goes by when I do not deal with families and their applications for the nursing home support scheme. These meetings are often difficult as the families have done so much to keep their loved ones at home but, given the medical need of their father, mother, brother or...

Joint Committee On Children, Equality, Disability, Integration And Youth: General Scheme of the Birth Information and Tracing Bill 2021: Discussion (Resumed) (13 Jul 2021) See 6 other results from this debate

Cathal Crowe: I confirm that I am in Leinster House 2000. I read Mr. Sunderland’s statement, and I followed his delivery of it. The one thing I wanted to home in on was article 15.4 of the GDPR. We are trying, insofar as is possible, to scrutinise this legislation, and ensure that when it comes out the other end is that it is very much favourable to the survivors and victims of the mother and...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (7 Jul 2021)

Catherine Connolly: ...xe1; soiléiriú á lorg agam ar an scéim atá beartaithe maidir le cúiteamh a thabhairt do dhaoine a chaith tréimhse i dtithe máithreacha agus leanaí.

Ceisteanna - Questions (Resumed) - Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Early Childhood Care and Education (6 Jul 2021)

Pauline Tully: Constituents have been contacting me. One lady told me that when her maternity leave finished and she tried to find a place for her little baby, she could not because no crèches in her area would take a child under one. She ended up being forced to take 16 weeks of additional unpaid maternity leave even though this had not been her intention and was not what she wanted to do. She was...

Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence: Statements (6 Jul 2021)

Mick Barry: Those who experience gender-based violence, mainly women, should get a big helping hand but instead the State stacks the odds against them. If you have rung 999 in recent years, the Garda might have cancelled your call and ignored your plea for help. If you try to leave the family home, you are confronted by a housing crisis and a shortage of refuge places. If you try to achieve financial...

Written Answers — Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth: Child Protection (6 Jul 2021)

My department and the agencies under it's remit are continuously looking to improve services and facilities available to children, especially vulnerable children.

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee Stage (Resumed) (5 Jul 2021)

Alice-Mary Higgins: ..., I believe the Minister of State has made the case for these changes to be necessary. We are talking about Ministers retiring as if we are chasing. I am reminded of when people are talking about mother and baby homes. They say the nuns are all gone and ask who we are chasing after. The point is not whether Ministers have come and gone and have retired or were in government. Many of...

Lorraine Clifford-Lee: I welcome the Minister of State, Deputy Butler, and thank her for outlining the Government's position. I come to this debate as somebody who has a keen interest in women's healthcare and reproductive health and rights. I campaigned for a long number of years to repeal the eighth amendment with many Senators here in this Chamber, and beyond with civil society groups. We have a very complex...

Traveller Culture and History in Education Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (1 Jul 2021)

Bríd Smith: I join colleagues in complimenting former Senator, Colette Kelleher, on her work in this area, along with Oein DeBhairduin, Senator Flynn and, in particular, Deputy Pringle, who has brought forward this Bill. As has been noted, it is a short Bill to promote understanding of the culture and history of the Traveller community. The question that strikes me is why we have to do pass legislation...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Disability Matters: Institutionalisation and the Inappropriate Use of Congregated Settings: Discussion (1 Jul 2021)

Ms Ann Marie Flanagan: I completely understand where Ms Fitzpatrick is coming from. What is worrying is when these policy decisions were made and the hospitals were closed down, we were promised community mental health care and that buildings would be sought and there would be investment in supporting people, but that did not happen. Through no fault of their own, people with mental health...
