Climate Change: Statements (7 Dec 2017)

Mick Wallace: ...of euro. As we spend our time looking at the potential for short-term returns on public infrastructure projects, climate change will cost us an increasing amount in financial terms and human lives destroyed. The idea that the State should operate like a private for-profit entity may be a central tenet of neoliberalism, which has facilitated the advance of the climate change disaster to...

Permanent Structured Cooperation: Motion (7 Dec 2017) See 4 other results from this debate

Martin Kenny: ...to sneak a motion through this House quickly and quietly in order to undermine Ireland's neutrality. It is obvious why it is doing this. Neutrality is popular in Ireland. It wants to undermine and destroy it but will not do so in the open because people would not stand for it. It is shameful that the Independent Alliance Deputies, who for years in opposition spoke passionately in...

Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund Regulations 2017: Motion (6 Dec 2017)

Mattie McGrath: ...and trainers. Think about the rates charged and the small trainers who must be supported. We talk about rural proofing legislation, but we are not rural proofing anything, rather we are trying to destroy everything that is good in rural areas. We must also look at the carry-on of the big conglomerates which I now call vulture funds. We have our own in County Tipperary which is...

Situation in Syria: Motion [Private Members] (5 Dec 2017) See 2 other results from this debate

Clare Daly: .... Appalling atrocities have been committed. They include people being burned alive in ovens by ISIS and people being murdered in their beds, their children kidnapped and their homes ransacked, looted and destroyed. The Syrian war is not, as previous speakers stated, a conflict between Sunni and Shia. We met people of all religions, many of whom united to fight al-Qaeda and the Saudis...

Topical Issue Debate: Drug and Alcohol Task Forces (5 Dec 2017)

Seán Crowe: ...drug dealing. There is an increase in the number of drug deaths and the rate of intimidation. Families are being intimidated in the area. There are children acting as drug runners and they are destroying the hope and potential of a whole generation. There are people fleeing their homes and becoming homeless because of intimidation. It probably would not surprise the Minister of State...

Leaders' Questions (5 Dec 2017)

Gerry Adams: ...of Justice and other European Union institutions need to be a central part of any agreement? If so, this needs to be a central plank in his negotiations as otherwise the Good Friday Agreement will be destroyed. The Taoiseach must not let that happen on his watch.

Topical Issue Debate: Railway Stations (30 Nov 2017)

John Brady: ...transport services at any time without having to give notice. Reducing the notice period to four hours is welcome, but it should be zero hours. The downgrading of DART stations is going to have a major impact and will destroy any progress that has been made. I am informed that a plan for Greystones, which will see it become an unmanned train station in the new year, is due to be rolled...

Proposed approval by Dáil Éireann of Ireland’s participation in two European Defence Agency Projects: Motion (30 Nov 2017) See 2 other results from this debate

Eamon Ryan: .... As I understand it, the best thing we did there revolved around our decision not to build a big fortification. We did not drive our trucks through local villages in the middle of the wet season, thereby destroying the roads used by local farmers. That marks the intelligence of the personnel we are proud to have serving in our armed forces. We bring these skills and strengths to...

Leaders' Questions (30 Nov 2017)

Brendan Howlin: ...That is unsatisfactory, especially in the light of the fact that copies of these documents are in circulation among politicians and the media. Efforts to establish whether the documents were deliberately destroyed have amounted to asking the Defence Forces to investigate themselves. What action will the Government take to ensure every member of the Defence Forces will earn at least a...

Select Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Ireland's Participation in European Defence Agency Projects: Motion (29 Nov 2017)

Paul Kehoe: ...finish in 2018. The aim of the follow-on project is to continue to develop manual neutralisation capabilities to the highest standards so as to retain capacity in dealing with improvised explosive devices, IEDs, when it is not possible to destroy or disrupt a device through other means. The follow-on project will provide personnel with access to a training system designed to continuously...

Disclosures Tribunal: Motion [Private Members] (29 Nov 2017) See 4 other results from this debate

Peadar Tóibín: ...McCabe. That falsehood was that he was a paedophile. Furthermore, elements of the State sought to base an entire legal strategy around this falsehood. They codified a lie as a legal strategy to destroy a man who was asking honourable and decent questions. The manner in which they did so was calculated and cold. We are faced with the reality that it was not just one person who set out...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution: Termination in Cases of Foetal Abnormality: Mr. Peter Thompson, Birmingham Women's and Children's Hospital (29 Nov 2017)

...that. If they hit one hurdle then that is all people tend to be concerned about. If I scan a patient and the top of the baby's skull is not formed, the baby has anencephaly and the brain is being destroyed. I would not think about the social scenarios so much with regard to whether I needed to circle that clause. I will now turn to the dangers of sticking to strict definitions. With...

David Norris: ...Síochána - conspired together knowingly to make false accusations against a citizen of the State and to frame him. Had that citizen not had a tape recording of that meeting, he could have been destroyed and the false accusations would have been held against him.

Seanad: Climate Action and Low Carbon Development Act 2015: Statements (29 Nov 2017) See 1 other result from this debate

Frances Black: ...that there is complacency in what the Government is doing. I am also concerned that the Minister might be trying to get as many loopholes into our 2030 targets as possible. Doing so could destroy our international credibility. Instead of taking action to reduce emissions, I am worried that the Government is seeking to take advantage of this by claiming that our failure to meet the 2020...

Seanad: Garda Overtime Budget: Statements (29 Nov 2017)

Kevin Humphreys: ...go out daily and work to build up trust. However, we then see their morale torn apart by what the Minister seems to be saying are false reports. If they are false, action has to be taken. We cannot allow the morale of our gardaí to be destroyed in such a cavalier fashion. They have to be able to plan their lives in some way. They are ordinary workers, like ourselves, and they...

Social Welfare Bill 2017: Second Stage (Resumed) (28 Nov 2017)

Tommy Broughan: ...employment, the majority of which is low paid, part-time and precarious employment, they also led to over 30% of recipients of the new payment losing over 10% of their weekly income. Losing 10% of one's weekly income when one is already in poverty is soul destroying and the previous Government should have done everything in its power to reverse changes that meant this cohort of families...

Mick Wallace: ...ána and the Department of Justice and Equality. While it is an incredible honour to be in this place and to be put here by the people in one's own area, I also find it incredibly frustrating. It is soul destroying watching the games that are played in here by all sides, not just the Government side. Are we ever going to change how we do things in here? We have lost two...

Seanad: Order of Business (28 Nov 2017)

Catherine Ardagh: ...to appoint as an independent external investigator. It all begs the question of what other documents, memos, letters, etc., have not been handed over to the tribunal. Have any of these documents been destroyed? The Taoiseach also recommended the full implementation of the Toland report. I ask the Leader to ask the Taoiseach for more detail on when this will commence. Time is of the...

Finance Bill 2017: Report Stage (Resumed) (23 Nov 2017) See 3 other results from this debate

Mick Wallace: ...hear the argument that other Europeans are working with the Americans as well and that the Americans are our friends. It is almost as if the fact that they bring arms, bombs and so on through to destroy places like Yemen is none of our business. Deputy Pearse Doherty mentioned that we were robbing the Third World with our behaviour. ActionAid Ireland made the same point recently,...

Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Nov 2017)

Mattie McGrath: ...will have a detrimental impact on our farming industry, in particular the beef sector. It would be appropriate to take immediate action to ensure that we are not flooded with cheap beef that would destroy our already vulnerable beef industry.
