Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Fergus O'Dowd: Following the murder of Keane Mulready-Woods in Drogheda, the Government published the Geiran report, which is a very comprehensive document containing lots of timelines and recommendations on actions to be taken. I ask the Minister to outline, in particular, what is happening in relation to the Drogheda implementation plan. I wish to acknowledge the fantastic work done by the Minister, the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank Deputy O'Dowd for raising the matter. I know he has put a huge amount of work into it. As the Deputy will be aware, the publication and implementation of the recommendations of the Drogheda scoping report are key actions in my Department's justice plan 2021. I am grateful to the former director of the Probation Service, Mr. Vivian Geiran, who made over 70 recommendations in his...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Fergus O'Dowd: While I welcome the actions the Minister has taken and in particular, the prioritisation of applications through the implementation board to the separate Departments for the local community, there are problems and they need to be addressed further. It is true that the Department of Justice has been exemplary in its commitment to change and its response to people through organisations such...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank the Deputy for raising the issue. I am disappointed to hear the HSE is not engaging with the Red Door Project. Grants have been provided to the Red Door Project. My Department is engaging with the HSE on the provision of funding to the family addiction support network. I wish to assure the House that the whole of Government is committed to supporting the implementation of the plan...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Fergus O'Dowd: As I said earlier, I acknowledge the fantastic job that has been done by the local Garda and the Department of Justice. There must be improvement in communication between the HSE and the Red Door Project. Action on the part of the HSE speaks louder than words. The other issue is that there must be community representatives on the implementation board. I have looked at the Dublin North...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Departmental Reports (21 Oct 2021)

Peter Fitzpatrick: First, I wish to thank the Minister for her commitment to the future plans of Drogheda. In fairness, Drogheda needs a bit of help and I am glad the Government and the Minister made a commitment. A few months ago the Garda Commissioner, Drew Harris, and Chief Superintendent Christy Mangan attended St. Nicholas Gaelic Football Cub's open day to show the amount of work the GAA does in the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I welcome the overall funding of more than €30 million to help tackle domestic, sexual and gender-based violence, including an extra €1 million to improve An Garda Síochána divisional protective service units. The DPSUs are now in every Garda division and deliver a consistent and professional approach to the investigation of sexual crime, child abuse and domestic...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

David Stanton: I commend the Minister and the Department on the supports they are providing in this area, but I put it to her that it is quite often the case that when court cases occur, which is often a long time after the events in question, the victims are retraumatised and there is further need at that stage for support and counselling. I ask the Minister to take that request on board and revert to me...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

Jennifer Carroll MacNeill: I thank the Minister for her response. This morning, I spoke to a woman experiencing coercive control. She told me of the difficulties she is having in that regard that continue to follow her through the family law system. The use of the family law system by perpetrators of abuse to continue to exercise control is something about which we have to be really concerned. I ask that where...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: As I stated, we have secured increased funding under budget 2022 to continue the progress made in our work to support the victims of crime and to combat domestic, sexual and gender-based violence. In the past year, we have already delivered several key actions to make the criminal justice system more victim-centred and to improve how we support and protect vulnerable victims, including the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: I thank the Minister. I do appreciate these developments, which are most welcome. It is further great news that Safe Ireland and Airbnb have announced the launch of a domestic violence survivor fund backed by a €350,000 donation from Airbnb. The fund will provide grants to women and children who are escaping abuse. Cash and a place to stay are vital supports. When will we see such...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic Violence (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: The Deputy is correct that we need everybody to work together. That is what makes a difference and provides results. As regards a refuge centre for Carlow-Kilkenny, the accommodation review that I understand Tusla is finalising has examined the current level of refuge provision, evidence of demand for services and unmet need. It has also done an analysis of proximity to refuges by local...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Citizenship Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Citizenship Applications

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Citizenship Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Peter Fitzpatrick: 88. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the number of citizenship applications outstanding for longer than 12 months; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [51504/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Citizenship Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Peter Fitzpatrick: How many applicants for citizenship are currently waiting more than 12 months for a decision on their application? How many are currently waiting more than 24 months? My constituency office is overflowing with queries from such applicants. Applications are currently taking at least 23 months to be processed and there are more than 22,000 applicants awaiting a decision.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Citizenship Applications (21 Oct 2021)

James Browne: I thank the Deputy for raising the important matter of the number of citizenship applications outstanding for longer than 12 months. I am deeply conscious of how important the granting of naturalisation is to those who apply for it. My Department has continued to accept and process citizenship applications throughout the pandemic and during all levels of public health restrictions. ...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Citizenship Applications (21 Oct 2021)

Peter Fitzpatrick: I thank the Minister for what was, in fairness, a good reply. However, the problem at the moment is that there seems to be a communication breakdown. When my staff contact the Department for an update on the situation, it is nearly impossible to get one. In fairness, it is the same people coming in every time. All they need is an update. To me, the only people making any kind of money...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

Thomas Pringle: Deployment in a fair manner is key. Based on the figures the Minister of State provided today, by comparison with those provided in response to other questions, it does not seem to be fair. I ask him to impress on the Garda authorities that deployment should be fair and that every part of the country has to be policed in the same way. This is important for community safety. It is...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

James Browne: Again, I thank the Deputy for raising the matter of Garda numbers in Donegal. We will always endeavour in the Department of Justice to ensure the Garda Commissioner is deploying gardaí fairly throughout the country as they are needed.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: An Garda Síochána (21 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: We are moving on to Question No. 90. We are checking the matter concerning Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett.
