Ceisteanna - Questions - Priority Questions: Wildlife Protection (21 Jun 2018)

Josepha Madigan: ...only. There will be no widescale deep cutting or cutting with heavy machinery or flails. The Deputy is aware of another fact, that being it is an offence under section 22 of the Wildlife Act to destroy, injure or mutilate wilfully the eggs or nests of any bird species. It is a crime to touch a nest and anyone cutting the hedge is obliged to check for nests. There is enforcement of...

Address by Mr. Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission (21 Jun 2018)

Leo Varadkar: ...States it has never been more important that we as Europeans stand strongly together. Seventy years ago, the European ideal was created out of the fires of a Continent that had been ravaged and destroyed by hatred and conflict after two world wars, in fact centuries of war. It was built on a dream for a future that few believed was possible. A vision of a better Europe, it succeeded in...

Summer Economic Statement 2018: Statements (20 Jun 2018)

Tommy Broughan: ...and the Minster for Finance are attempting to adopt the guise of fiscal prudence and responsibility in the run-in to budget 2019. Of course, they and their Fianna Fáil partners took the opposite road when they destroyed our national finances from September 2008 and decimated our key public services. The expenditure benchmark table, on page 18 of the report, shows net fiscal space of...

United States Immigration Policy: Motion (20 Jun 2018)

Louise O'Reilly: ...criticise America without rightly criticising the direct provision system. It is abhorrent and should be dismantled. Those who established it should apologise to the people whose lives they have destroyed. The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland estimates that mental health problems are up to five times higher among those living in direct provision accommodation than in the wider...

Seanad: Mental Healthcare in South-East Region: Statements (20 Jun 2018)

Jim Daly: ...the Senator. It is deeply irresponsible of us to do that. The challenge we all collectively face now is to recruit three consultants into the area. How can we do this? We will not do it by destroying the image of the services and tearing up the work that has been done over the years. Last year, CAMHS delivered services to 14,400 young people. It is a vital service and it is vital we...

Apology for Persons Convicted of Consensual Same-Sex Sexual Acts: Motion (19 Jun 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Paul Murphy: ...laws should be pardoned. We should remember that the lives of countless people were very badly affected by those laws. People were forced to emigrate. People lost jobs. People's lives were destroyed. I suggest that the State, in addition to providing a pardon, needs to undertake to address all of those who were convicted and harmed by the barbaric laws I have mentioned. It is...

Incorrect Birth Registrations: Statements (14 Jun 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin: ...access to the very information that records their entry into this world is to deny them a very basic human right. Birth certificates were altered and disappeared, while in some cases they were destroyed. Children were taken illegally from parents. These actions were disgraceful and wrong in the extreme. There are difficulties in striking a balance between the right to one's identity...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Amendment) Act 2009 and Offences against the State (Amendment) Act 1998: Motions (14 Jun 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Charles Flanagan: ...The Garda assessment is that there is a real and persistent threat from republican paramilitary groups on this island, the so-called dissidents. These groups have spent the past 20 years trying to destroy the Good Friday Agreement. They are resolute in their opposition to democracy and peace and they are resolute in their commitment to brutality and criminality. I am equally resolute...

Offences against the State (Amendment) Act 1998 and Criminal Justice (Amendment) Act 2009: Motions (13 Jun 2018)

Charles Flanagan: ...remains a real and persistent threat from republican paramilitary groups on this island, the so called dissidents. These groups vehemently oppose peace and democracy and have spent 20 years trying to destroy the Good Friday Agreement and all it stands for. I am determined that these terrorists will not succeed and the bullet or bomb will not prevail over the ballot box. I refer also to...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs: General Affairs Council: Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (13 Jun 2018)

Bernard Durkan: ...and it will not happen. If it happens the other way, it follows on that the UK goes. However, the British cannot dislodge the fundamentals of the European Union on their way out. They cannot destroy the European Union on their way out. They cannot reform it in such a way as to make it unworkable. They cannot create an option for others to follow that will entitle them to envisage an...

Leaders' Questions (13 Jun 2018)

Leo Varadkar: ...brought before the courts. The Deputy will appreciate that as it is now a matter before the courts, it would be inappropriate for me to comment much further on the matter. However, this reprehensible act destroyed a family and has, understandably, left the community of Cahersiveen and wider south Kerry in complete shock. I know the House will join me in extending our deepest sympathies...

Ceisteanna - Questions - Priority Questions: Adoption Registration (13 Jun 2018)

Denise Mitchell: ...? Are the records of other organisations or societies being investigated? Is Tusla committed to obtaining all of these records? There is great concern that these files will go missing or be destroyed. Will the Minister commit to an investigation that will cover all agencies, individuals and homes involved in adoption in this State and also the estimated 2,000 children who were sent to...

Questions - Ceisteanna: Taoiseach's Meetings and Engagements (12 Jun 2018)

Brendan Howlin: ...in Gaza, which can never be justified, are something on which we have to take action. With regard to the illegal expansions of settlements, I am aware of one instance where a Palestinian home was destroyed to make way for a new settlement. That cannot be right. What is happening is that a whole new generation of Palestinians are being reared in resentment and oppression, and it can...

Seanad: Tourism Industry: Statements (12 Jun 2018)

Brendan Griffin: I was allowed to keep them. When an employer keeps tips meant for front-line staff it is soul-destroying for the workers and it is scandalous, appalling and disgusting. I would hope it is very rare and I am open to proposals to stamp it out. It has not been brought to my attention and in all the places I have worked over the years, I have seen nothing but a very positive treatment of staff...

Other Questions: Greenhouse Gas Emissions (31 May 2018)

Clare Daly: ...we start to deliver on things such as this, we will not just be disappointed and paying fines with a pot load of money, we could also be spending on other things. However, our planet will be destroyed and with it our country. We need to see something much better.

Seanad: Order of Business (30 May 2018)

Paul Daly: .... It is a renewable, natural fibre that has to be shorn each year, after which another fleece is produced the following year. It can be used in insulation, clothing and carpets but instead we are destroying our climate and environment by continually moving towards the petrochemically produced synthetic fibres. It is not just an issue of sheep wool. There are many more items and...

Seanad: Community Banking System: Statements (30 May 2018)

Rose Conway Walsh: ...post offices. The reason for discussing public banking is that we desperately need another banking model that is not open to the greed and incompetence that we saw those very same pillar banks destroy our economy. Why has the current offer been made to the postmasters? Surely if the Government was serious about setting up a second tier of banking it would strive to keep these branches...

Seanad: Criminal Justice (Corruption Offences) Bill 2017: Report and Final Stages (30 May 2018)

Michael McDowell: ...by successive Attorneys General on the basis that the reputational consequence of being convicted of theft, even for stealing a chocolate bar from one's local shop, is of such gravity that it could destroy a person's career or require a person to resign office. In the course of the various debates that have been held on the legislative process on this issue, I remember there are more than...

Seanad: Incorrect Birth Registrations: Statements (30 May 2018)

Katherine Zappone: ..., there are also potentially serious issues relating to the correction of birth records and inheritance. As Minister responsible for both Tusla and the Adoption Authority of Ireland, let me be clear that we are not out to destroy, split or upset families. We are here to provide information and support. I stand over my assessment that, as Minister, I had a responsibility, once there was...
