Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Patrick Costello: On top of the waiting list figures that have been mentioned, a significant cohort of young people seek referral to CAMHS who, through inconsistent application of standing operating procedures, do not get their referral accepted, and who are told that it is either only behavioural or only emotional and it is not appropriate. Behind these figures of waiting lists there is another significant...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Mary Butler: I do not disagree with anything the Deputies have said. Everybody has the best interests of every child who is on a waiting list and every child who needs to get into one of the approved centres at heart. Everybody feels the same. I am a mother and I feel the exact same. There is not a family in Ireland that, whether directly or indirectly, has not been affected by mental ill-health. ...

Refugee Resettlement Programme

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Refugee Resettlement Programme (24 May 2022)

Chris Andrews: Built in 1893, the Royal City of Dublin Hospital on Upper Baggot Street, more commonly known as Baggot Street hospital, was a main centre of care for a large part of the south-inner city for almost 100 years before the acute services were transferred to St. James's Hospital in 1986. Despite its current state of disrepair, this building stretching 5,600 sq. m is still stunning to look at....

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Energy Policy (24 May 2022)

Ossian Smyth: The first question is the nature of the legal agreement between Ireland and the UK on the supply of gas. I will have to consult the Civil Service to give Deputy Stanton an exact answer on that. I do not, however, think it is a gentlemen’s agreement between the two countries. The next question was about the form of liquid back-up for the gas supply plans. I believe it is gas oil and...

Mental Health Services

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Mark Ward: Over the weekend I received the devastating news from the Psychiatric Nurses Association, PNA, that 11 of the 23 CAMHS beds in Linn Dara have closed. I thank the association for informing me because it seems no effort was made by the Minister of State’s office to do so. When was she going to inform the public? Was she hoping that the closure of children’s mental health beds...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Bríd Smith: I heard the Minister of State speak about this in the media and earlier in the House. Frankly, she sounds more like an observer than somebody who has responsibility for it. We are facing a huge crisis in child and adolescent mental health. It is in the news every day. People are constantly ringing radio programmes, such as Joe Duffy's radio programme, about the crisis being faced. ...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Joan Collins: As the Minister of State is aware, I raised this question on Leaders' Questions this morning. I made the point that Linn Dara is a key facility for child and adolescents mental health services, CAMHS, nationally and for the greater Dublin area, Wicklow, Kildare and, in particular, Louth. The HSE stated that these bed closures, a reduction of 11 beds down from 24 to 13, is a consequence of a...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Patrick Costello: It is important to remember that Linn Dara deals with the most distressed and the most complex cases of children and young people seeking help. The Deputies speaking tonight are from Dublin South-Central and Dublin South-West but the reality is that Linn Dara serves Kildare, Westmeath, Laois, Offaly, Longford and Louth. As Deputy Collins said, this is a national service and we should really...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Mental Health Services (24 May 2022)

Mary Butler: I thank the four Deputies for raising this issue today. Deputy Collins raised it earlier as well. It was raised on Leaders' Questions because it is a very serious situation. I was informed on 11 May 2022 that due to recruitment challenges, the number of operational beds in the Linn Dara CAMHS unit was going to be reduced from 24 to 13 on a temporary basis. Deputy Costello is quite right...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Island Communities (24 May 2022)

James Browne: I certainly hear the Deputy's cogent and well thought-out points and I will bring them to the attention of the Minister who, unfortunately, cannot be here. On the PSO routes managed by the NTA, the Department of Rural and Community Development does not subsidise all services and all routes, as has been stated, and careful consideration, therefore, must be given to any change that could...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Island Communities (24 May 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I appreciate that. I thank the Minister of State for cutting his reply short. It would have been a further embarrassment if he did not do so.

Energy Policy

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Energy Policy (24 May 2022)

David Stanton: I thank the Office of the Ceann Comhairle for selecting this issue, and the Minister of State, Deputy Ossian Smyth, for being here to respond on it. Last Friday, I attended a seminar in Cobh organised by Cobh and Harbour Chamber. There were some serious people there representing the energy sector. The focus was on renewables and the great potential that exists in Cork Harbour in particular...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Energy Policy (24 May 2022)

Ossian Smyth: I thank the Deputy for asking this important question. Ireland imports approximately three quarters of its natural gas from the UK, with the remainder coming from the Corrib field. The UK has a diverse supply of gas, including indigenous UK gas, Norwegian gas, liquefied natural gas and via interconnectors with Belgium and the Netherlands. The UK and, by extension, Ireland are not heavily...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Energy Policy (24 May 2022)

David Stanton: We could probably have a longer debate on this issue. Is there a signed agreement between the UK and Ireland in respect of Ireland's interconnectors and the flow of gas to which the Minister of State referred? It is all very fine stating there is excellent co-operation but what is the nature of that co-operation? Is it a signed agreement between the two countries? As all present are...

Ábhair Shaincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Matters (24 May 2022)

Bernard Durkan: I wish to advise the House of the following matters in respect of which notice has been given under Standing Order 37 and the name of the Member in each case: (1) Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív - the urgent need for the Minister for Rural and Community Development to reduce islander fares on public service obligation, PSO, services to the islands by ferry and by air by 20% in line with...
