Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

Martin Kenny: I am surprised and deeply annoyed that the Government would refuse a commission of investigation having seen what was put before the public in recent weeks in the documentary on RTÉ, which exposed the reality that there was no appropriate or full investigation, even at the time of Fr. Molloy's death. Many of the people who were at the party in the house on the evening in question were...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

Claire Kerrane: In the Minister of State's contribution, he referred to the major review that was conducted and the subsequent report of Mr. McGinn. Neither has provided any answers or justice to the family. It is not good enough to say it is unlikely that what actually happened will come to light, and that this is why a commission of investigation will not be established. This is a position that the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

James Browne: Again, I thank the Deputies for raising this matter. I am very aware of the claims that have been made over many years regarding Fr. Molloy's death but I must emphasise again that the Minister for Justice has no role in any investigation of any crime or the decision to prosecute any crime. These are strictly matters for An Garda Síochána and the DPP. The question of any further...

Seán Ó Fearghaíl: I thank the Minister of State, and I thank the Deputies for raising these matters.

Sitting suspended at 4.57 p.m. and resumed at 5.03 p.m.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

Rose Conway-Walsh: The Minister of State has not answered any of my questions. He did what I asked him not to do, which was repeat the written answers that Deputy Calleary and I have been given already. We asked who made the decision, when it was made and whether it is going to be overturned or reversed. Nobody has asked for this. If there is nobody capable, within the Department or politically, of...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

Dara Calleary: The make-up of the national park and the percentage of parishes within it has not changed much with the addition. It was always thus and it was always fine when it was called Ballycroy National Park. There was no demand for the other parishes to have their name attached to it. I acknowledge that the Minister of State is not the line Minister. I ask him to go back to question the process....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

James Browne: I thank the Deputies for bringing up what is clearly a most important matter for them both and for County Mayo. I am not in a position to answer the specific questions on who made the decision and when it was made, and on the issues in respect of consultation, but I understand and hear the incredible importance of the name to the Deputies. I will certainly bring those points to the relevant...

Commissions of Investigation

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

Martin Kenny: I am sure the Minister of State will be aware of the documentary that was aired on RTÉ over the past number of weeks on this issue. On an evening in 1985, Fr. Molloy was found dead in a bedroom in a house in Clara, County Offaly, the home of the Flynn family. They were a wealthy family with whom Fr. Molloy had both personal and business relationships, as it subsequently turned out. ...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

Claire Kerrane: Fr. Niall Molloy was a son, a brother, an uncle, a neighbour, a friend and a parish priest to the people of Castlecoote, County Roscommon. He was held in the highest regard by those who knew him and those whom he served in his parish. Fr. Molloy was brutally murdered 36 years ago. It is 36 years later and there have been no answers and, more importantly, there has been no justice. There...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Commissions of Investigation (23 Sep 2021)

James Browne: I thank the Deputies for raising this most important matter. As the House will be aware, Fr. Niall Molloy was a Catholic priest who tragically died in undetermined circumstances on 8 July 1985. Fr. Molly was the parish priest of Castlecoote, County Roscommon at the time of his death. I wish to send my sympathies and those of this House to the family of Fr. Molloy for the grief and trauma...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Tobacco Control Measures (23 Sep 2021)

Frank Feighan: Some interesting areas have been looked at. I will ask the Minister to investigate the fact that in Finland people are allowed to bring in no more than 200 cigarettes while in this country 800 cigarettes is the maximum. We will consider that. There is also the fact that the manufacturers dictate the retail selling price in the context of the number of cigarettes that can be in a packet....

National Parks

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

Rose Conway-Walsh: I thank the Minister of State for being here to address this issue. There are many things that need to be fixed in Ballycroy and County Mayo, including broadband, mobile phone coverage, roads, housing and health. However, one of the things that did not need to be fixed was the name of Ballycroy National Park, which has been changed to Wild Nephin National Park. The people of Ballycroy and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

Dara Calleary: Ballycroy National Park was established in 1998. The visitor centre at Ballycroy was opened in 2009. At establishment, it had 11,000 ha of some of the most rare and precious bogland in the world and that was to be at its heart. There was never any difficulty with the name Ballycroy National Park. Ballycroy is a centre and a community. It was the people of the area who campaigned for the...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: National Parks (23 Sep 2021)

James Browne: I thank the Deputies for raising this very important matter that I am taking on behalf of the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, who sends his apologies for not being able to be present. He has asked me to assure the Deputies that his Department is deeply committed to the development of the national park in Mayo. In December 2017, the Department...
