Clare Daly: ..., but blocking it with a money message would be particularly disingenuous, especially in light of the point made by Deputy Ó Snodaigh that the system of money messaging will change soon. How many families will be destroyed in the meantime?

Michael Fitzmaurice: ...Ireland. If Fine Gael continues on the road of previous Governments of giving big landlord farmers €140,000 and €150,000 in CAP funding and giving small farmers €3,000 or €4,000, it will destroy the west of Ireland. We have asked for somebody to come forward. I would like to talk to the people who do the figures. I ask the Minister to facilitate it. Many...

Select Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government: Local Government Bill 2018: Committee Stage (Resumed) (6 Dec 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

John Paul Phelan: ...of the city. Business and trade has been mentioned. There have been massive planning issues through the generations in all of these towns. Out-of-town centres have been built and town centres have been destroyed. That is why this provision is included. Deputies might want it to be worded differently and that can be considered on Report Stage. I specifically requested that these...

Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018: Report Stage (Resumed) (5 Dec 2018)

Mattie McGrath: ...conscience. It makes them party to taking the baby's life. The referral obligation forces general practitioners, in violation of their sincerely held convictions, to be involved in a process that destroys that life. Under the Bill in its current form, doctors would not only be entitled, but also obliged, to act in violation of the most fundamental principle of medicine, the obligation...

Seanad: Consumer Protection (Regulation of Credit Servicing Firms) Bill 2018: Second Stage (5 Dec 2018)

Gerry Horkan: ...in terms of how they were trying to proceed. We heard stories of hotels and other businesses being refused planning permission, with people coming in to allegedly help with the business but really out to destroy it and to get possession of the business and get the existing owners out so they could sell it on for a fast buck. It is helpful that this Bill has been brought forward. The...

Seanad: Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018: Report and Final Stages (5 Dec 2018)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: ...in Ireland. A clear example of how the legislation would work is by stopping goods and services from illegal Israeli colonial settlements from entering the State. For decades, Israel has attempted to destroy the two-state solution by increasing massively the construction of illegal colonial settlements in Palestine. The building of these illegal colonial settlements violates...

Local Government Bill 2018: Instruction to Committee (4 Dec 2018)

Mattie McGrath: ...and damaging to Cork. I can speak from my experience of what the Government did in Tipperary when it amalgamated north and south Tipperary county councils against the wishes of the people. It destroyed our county and our county town of Clonmel and took away all the services. The Government abolished town and borough councils and did not care. Democracy is being taken away from the...

Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018: Report Stage (Resumed) (29 Nov 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Mattie McGrath: ...grandchildren. As I said last night, I have heard about more than one case and I have heard many others give testimony. We know there are countless numbers of people. Anything can go wrong in a safe delivery but when one is out to destroy life, one might not always succeed. I have seen the evidence. It was a pity that when that woman came to Dublin during the summer and hotels were...

Social Welfare, Pensions and Civil Registration Bill: Report Stage (29 Nov 2018)

Joan Collins: ...to register as self-employed. It is happening across the board. Whether it is 1% or 15% of the workforce no employment of this nature should be allowed to seep into the workplace. It is soul destroying for the workers. They cannot plan for events such as birthdays, first communions, Christmas and so forth. It has a huge impact on them because they do not get paid for the period they...

Vote 24 - Department of Justice and Equality (Supplementary)
(29 Nov 2018)

Mick Wallace: ...me and said the place was hell on earth. Of late Deputy Clare Daly and I have been working with a number of refugees in direct provision centres. From what we are being told, they seem to be soul-destroying places in which to live. The Minister says improvements are being made. Am I right in thinking most of the facilities are still being run by the private sector? Who is making the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Road Safety (29 Nov 2018)

John Lahart: ...would be only one of a number affected by the use of quad bikes and scramblers, however. In Killinarden, one resident described 99% of the open space designated for public use in that estate being destroyed by 1% of the local community. An issue arose during the snow earlier in the year. I refer to the incident at Lidl in Jobstown. The Garda in Tallaght has only one four-by-four...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Drugs Crime (29 Nov 2018)

Brendan Smith: ...severity of sentences in his response. The widespread narrative is that in many instances the penalties do not meet the crime being committed, the pain and suffering inflicted, and the innocent lives destroyed by these peddlers of drugs.

Seanad: Greyhound Racing Bill 2018: Report Stage (29 Nov 2018)

Andrew Doyle: ...39 of the 1958 Act. Those regulations included a two-year time limit on the use of semen for artificial insemination following the death of a stud dog. Any unused semen thereafter had to be destroyed. I understand this measure was introduced to lessen the possibility of an increase in inbreeding in the population caused by owners using only a limited set of sires. The measure would have...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Offshore Exploration Licences (29 Nov 2018)

Bríd Smith: ...if the recent findings of the ObSERVE Programme into marine life will inform his policy on issuing licences for the exploration of oil and gas in view of the fact that such activity is known to destroy plankton, damage breeding grounds for many species and cause disorientation to many whale species listed in the ObSERVE study; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Eye Care (28 Nov 2018)

Maria Byrne: ...to which children are exposed. The cancer society has shown that screen time is linked not only with short-sightedness but also cancer.This issue must be kept on the agenda because children are destroying their eyesight. There should be an awareness campaign or other measure to highlight to children and parents the damage caused by excessive screen time. Screen time should be limited...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Social Media Regulation (28 Nov 2018)

Diarmuid Wilson: ...documentary regarding a puppy farm, allegedly in County Cavan, this up-and-coming country and western star with no connection to that particular business has become the target of an orchestrated campaign to destroy him and his family. Venues where he was due to play have been contacted by individuals using various forms of social media. They have been intimidated and, in some cases,...

Seanad: Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018: Committee Stage (Resumed) (28 Nov 2018)

Gerard Craughwell: ...to protect itself. It has rockets coming over the border from Hamas but the response is sometimes above and beyond anything that would be expected. For all intents and purposes, Israel has destroyed Gaza. The bottom line is that Israel is in area where it should not be and products from any economic activity generated from that area should not be purchased by people in the European...

Carol Nolan: ...did not. I have a conscientious objection to this Bill, as does my colleague beside me. We were forced out of the party that Deputy represents. How dare that Deputy come in here and try to destroy me and my character and make accusations like that.

Select Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach: Estimates for Public Services 2018
Vote 13 - Office of Public Works (Supplementary)
(27 Nov 2018)

Joan Burton: ...was organising it, call the shots on that? There needs to be a re-evaluation. During the first papal visit to Ireland years ago, there were none of these holding pens and gates. For many, these destroyed the visit because where a family booked four tickets, they got one ticket for one gate, a ticket for another gate and a further ticket for yet another gate. The park walls, as I am...

Finance Bill 2018: Report Stage (Resumed) (22 Nov 2018)

Michael McGrath: ...calling consistently for progress on the Gambling Control Bill 2018 to deal with problem gambling. The industry needs to play a full part in dealing with such issues because problem gambling can destroy lives. However, that is not the subject of this discussion. Whenever the Minister proposes a tax increase, I imagine vested interests, including those directly affected, make...
