Pearse Doherty: Mar Theachta Dála atá i mo chónaí in aice leis an bhfarraige, tá aithne agam go pearsanta, agus beidh ag Teachtaí eile chomh maith, ar na mná agus fir chróga atá mar pháirt den gharda cósta agus a chuireann iad féin i mbaol go minic ar mhaithe le sláinte agus sábháilte daoine eile atá i dtrioblóid ar an...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Eamon Ryan: Our thoughts on this whole issue go to the families of those people who tragically lost their lives while doing the great public service of putting themselves in danger on others' behalf. It is absolutely in all our interest that the families are not put into any further difficulty or stress to add to the tragedy they have had to cope with. It would be scandalous if we were fighting against...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (21 Oct 2021)

Pearse Doherty: I am glad to hear there is a change of tune but it should never have got to this point. The Minister said what I said was not true. Did the Department oppose the applications by the families' teams to the review board to have their costs covered? The review team made a determination on this. In part of its determination it said: "... it would have been difficult if not impossible for the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Pauline Tully: I thank the Minister. It was at a recent joint policing committee, JPC, meeting in Cavan that I became aware that this service actually exists and that the prison service will liaise with a victim or with his or her family. I understand that the Minister has said that one has to request that information. There are many people who are not aware that they need or have to request that...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: No, but the Deputy can have another bite of the cherry afterwards. I call Deputy Kenny for a brief comment.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Pauline Tully: Okay, I thank the Acting Chairman.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Martin Kenny: Briefly, to respond to the Minister, I have also come across a number of cases of people who have contacted my office where they had been a victim of crime and the first thing that they knew of the perpetrator being out in the public again was when they, or a close member of their family, met them on the street. There has clearly been a breakdown in that service in that it does not...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank the Deputy Tully for raising this issue because it is only through open discussion that we get the message out there to people that those supports are there. Ensuring that victims are better supported by the criminal justice system, including by ensuring that they are fully informed of their rights, is a priority for the Government. A significant part of the work to implement...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Pauline Tully: I am conscious that gardaí who investigate the crime often stay in touch with the family and keep them apprised of issues. Gardaí can move on for different reasons because of promotion or retirement and I do not expect them to remember every individual case they deal with. Could there be some sort of electronic or technological reminder in the Garda station to contact the family,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

John Lahart: Just to inform Members, the question from Deputy Brendan Smith will be the last question. I call on the Minister to conclude.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Victim Support Services (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: I thank the Acting Chairman. Under budget 2022, €4.9 million is being allocated to support victims of crime. The contact that the victim of crime really needs to make is with the victim liaison office. This can be done by telephone, email or online via the Irish Prison Service website. I agree with the Deputy that it is no harm to do an awareness campaign around this so that people...

Brendan Smith: 93. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the progress to date in establishing a public inquiry into the death of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [51633/21]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (21 Oct 2021)

Brendan Smith: My question relates to the tragic death of Shane O'Farrell in County Monaghan following a hit-and-run accident in August 2011. I have often listened to Lucia O'Farrell, Shane's mother, outline with great detail and clarity the dysfunctionality of so many elements of the criminal justice system that led to Shane's tragic death. A scoping exercise was established by a previous Minister for...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (21 Oct 2021)

Heather Humphreys: Gabhaim buíochas. I thank the Deputy again for raising this issue. I wish to assure the Deputy that I also, as do others in this House, recognise the ongoing pain and anguish of the O'Farrell family on the tragic death of Shane and I deeply sympathise with them on their loss. As the Deputy will be aware, a highly respected retired Judge, Gerard Haughton, has been conducting a scoping...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (21 Oct 2021)

Brendan Smith: I thank the Leas-Cheann Comhairle and the Minister for her reply. My question has been framed in the background that on 14 June 2018 we all voted in this Chamber calling on the Government to establish a public inquiry. As we all know in this House the O'Farrell family has worked tirelessly seeking justice for their only son and brother. The State failed them in the manner in which the...
