Environmental Policy: Motion [Private Members] (18 Dec 2019)

Seán Sherlock: The Labour Party is proposing this motion because we wish to talk about public health and the effects of air pollution on it. There are some universal principles that we all appreciate and recognise. We recognise that environmental pollution and degradation are all too often the by-products of our economy. The EU has operated the polluter pays principle since 1987. Today it is enshrined...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Provision (18 Dec 2019)

Gino Kenny: If it were not for Jigsaw, which provides a great service in Dublin and across the country, many people would not be here at this time. This decision has been a bad one from the outset. It cannot be overturned without Government intervention. I reiterate that 84% of Jigsaw's funding comes from the Government. The Government has a say. It must override Jigsaw's decision to pull out of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Provision (18 Dec 2019)

Mark Ward: The reality is that it is not business as usual. When Jigsaw was providing a comprehensive service to the people of Clondalkin, Lucan, Palmerstown and Newcastle, it was business as usual. That comprehensive service is being ripped away. The hole in the youth mental health service provided to the people of this area will not be filled unless there is intervention. I urge the Minister of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Provision (18 Dec 2019)

Finian McGrath: I thank colleagues for raising important issues during this debate. I accept Deputy Curran's point about the need for a local-based service in Clondalkin. Deputy Ó Broin has asked me to talk the Minister of State, Deputy Daly. I assure him that I will do so. Deputy Gino Kenny mentioned that it was Jigsaw's decision to pull out of Clondalkin. He made the strong point that 84% of the...

Rail Services

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Rail Services (18 Dec 2019)

Malcolm Byrne: If the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport were to use the 16.33, 17.33 or 18.35 service from Connolly Station to travel to any of the towns along the Wicklow and Wexford coast that are served by the Rosslare rail line, it is unlikely that he would get a seat after the train has left the station. As someone who has used the service, I am aware of the regular problems caused by people...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Rail Services (18 Dec 2019)

John Brady: The railway line between Dublin and Rosslare has not been invested in or upgraded for many decades. It is not fit for purpose in its current form. Just five trains travel through County Wicklow to Dublin each day. By the time the two trains that leave Arklow at 6.03 a.m. and 6.57 a.m. get to the station in Wicklow town, there is barely any standing room left. Unfortunately, thousands of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Rail Services (18 Dec 2019)

Shane Ross: I thank the Deputies for their questions about overcrowding on the Rosslare rail service. As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and for the overall funding of public transport. The operation and provision of services on the rail network is a matter for Iarnród Éireann in the first instance, in consultation with the National Transport...

Mental Health Services Provision

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Provision (18 Dec 2019)

John Curran: Jigsaw has operated youth mental health services in Moorfield, Clondalkin, for several years. The services are well regarded in the community and those who have availed of them speak highly of them. This year, unfortunately, we learned that Jigsaw in Clondalkin is to relocate with Jigsaw in Tallaght, based in a new premises there. In discussions with my colleagues, Deputies Ó Broin...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services Provision (18 Dec 2019)

Eoin Ó Broin: It has been nine months since Deputies from Dublin Mid-West first raised the issue of Jigsaw's youth mental health services in Clondalkin and their possible closure. Since then, we have had two meetings with the Minister of State, Deputy Daly, and three with senior clinical staff at Jigsaw, we have engaged with the wider community, and there was a successful community vigil, all of which...
