Mother and Baby Institutions: Statements (25 Nov 2021) See 20 other results from this debate

Catherine Connolly: I thank the Rural Independent Group for giving me this opportunity. On another occasion I may have a debate with Deputy Durkan on his analysis that we were all in this together, and the ignoring of the huge element of power and the imbalance of power that was there. As someone who proudly comes from Galway city, let me tell the Deputy that I was raised in a city that had two industrial...

Education (Health, Relationships and Sex Education) Bill 2021: Second Stage [Private Members] (24 Nov 2021) See 3 other results from this debate

Gary Gannon: I thank all the contributors. It has been worthwhile and interesting to hear the various perspectives across the Chamber. I am going to use my time to respond to some of the issues raised in the debate. The first concerns the Government amendment that requires nine months of additional time. On the surface, I accept that it seems perfectly reasonable to give the NCCA nine months to...

Mother and Baby Homes Redress Scheme: Motion [Private Members] (23 Nov 2021) See 18 other results from this debate

Rose Conway-Walsh: We would not be here this evening if the Minister had used the findings of the OAK consultation with the survivors of the mother and baby homes. Nobody wants to be here, at least of all the people who are watching in tonight. The survivors do not want to be watching this. I send them our solidarity. I thank all of those who have engaged with Deputies across the House and told us their...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Commissions of Investigation (23 Nov 2021)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I certainly agree that the commission of investigation format is not working. The delays and costs involved are inordinate and often by the end of the process, a lot of people are left wondering what it was all about in the first place. There is an air of Dickens's Jarndyce and Jarndyce about a lot of these commissions. I refer to the report of the Commission of Investigation into...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Registration of Births (23 Nov 2021)

Marie Sherlock: I thank the Minister of State for coming to the House. At this point, there is a very real and serious problem with families being able to register the births of their newborn babies and get a birth certificate for that child. A child born in Cork today will have a birth registered in two to three days. If that same child was born in Dublin the wait for an appointment for registration...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (23 Nov 2021)

Catherine Ardagh: I congratulate my colleagues on Dublin City Council who approved the scheme to build 853 homes on the Oscar Traynor site. It includes 40% cost-rental, 40% social and 20% affordable housing and is a physical manifestation of the legislation that was passed in these Houses, so we should congratulate the Minister on that. It is a hugely welcome development but there are other really important...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Residential Institutions (18 Nov 2021) See 2 other results from this debate

Martin Browne: I am raising this issue on behalf of the survivors of mother and baby homes and county institutions across the country, who are outraged, deeply upset and insulted at the provisions made in the redress scheme that the Minister has published. To be frank, the redress scheme announced this week is an exercise in exclusion rather than compassion. I have been contacted by a number of survivors...

Ábhair Shaincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Matters (18 Nov 2021)

Catherine Connolly: I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 27A and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Alan Farrell - to discuss the need for the introduction of common enrolment processes in schooling; (2) Deputy Ivana Bacik - to discuss the crisis in staffing in the home care sector and the proposals to address same; (3)...

The Government also committed to the provision of a form of enhanced medical card. Will the Minister indicate when that card will be issued?

Seanad: Address to Seanad Éireann by An Taoiseach (18 Nov 2021)

Fiona O'Loughlin: I have no doubt that the Taoiseach has been in this Chamber many times as a Minister, but this is the first time he has been here as Taoiseach. We are deeply honoured to have him here and this side of the House is incredibly proud to have him as Taoiseach. Tomorrow is International Men's Day, which I spoke about earlier today on the Order of Business. The theme this year is true equality...

To ask the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth when excavations will be carried out at the burial site of the former mother and baby home in Tuam; the reason for the delay in commencing same; if An Garda Síochána will be involved in the supervision of the excavation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [56731/21]

To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the information that has been brought into the public domain regarding the deaths of children at the Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home at Tuam, County Galway that has been the subject of any criminal investigation; if excavations will take place at the site; the next steps that will be taken to secure the full information as...

Air Accident Investigation Unit Final Report into R116 air accident: Statements (17 Nov 2021)

Catherine Connolly: Like all other speakers on this issue, I extend condolences to the families of the commander, Dara Fitzpatrick; her co-pilot, Captain Mark Duffy; the winch operator, Paul Ormsby; and the winchman, Ciarán Smith. We have to match our extension of condolences with holding the system to account. I only have three minutes to speak on this issue so it is difficult to deal with it thoroughly....

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (17 Nov 2021)

Joan Collins: There are many issues I could raise, such as the national maternity hospital or redress for mother and baby homes, but I wish to raise the inability to recruit and retain staff across the public health service. It is now reaching a crisis point. This is particularly the case in the crucial area of home care services. Despite the increased allocation of hours by the Government, people...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (17 Nov 2021)

Mary Lou McDonald: Despite the widespread rejection of the report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes and Certain Related Matters, the Government has based its redress scheme on its findings. Survivors and families have been consistent in the demand for inclusive redress, redress that recognises the human rights abuse of forced family separation. The Government has ignored the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (17 Nov 2021) See 3 other results from this debate

Victor Boyhan: I thank the Deputy Leader for setting out the Order of Business. I also thank the Cathaoirleach, the Seanad staff and the staff of the Oireachtas for facilitating a very late debate in the Seanad. We will not sit until 1.15 a.m. tomorrow but we did so yesterday to deal with important legislation, the Planning and Development (Amendment) (Large-scale Residential Development) Bill. It was a...

Written Answers — Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth: Mother and Baby Homes Inquiries (17 Nov 2021)

Paul Murphy: 137. To ask the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth the reason a coroner’s inquest has not been ordered in respect of the Tuam burial site and other institutional sites of unmarked graves; if he will provide clarity on whether the Government will order inquests into the deaths and burials of mother and baby home residents; the reason the proposed certain...
