Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

Jennifer Murnane O'Connor: 7. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the way she is resourcing An Garda Síochána to tackle violence against women; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25988/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

James Lawless: I will not spend too much time on this question but it raises an important issue, which relates to the resources An Garda Síochána has to tackle violence against women. I know this is an issue that is close to the Minister's heart. It is sometimes referred to as domestic violence but, in fact, it is a broader issue that can occur outside the home as well. What resources are being...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

Helen McEntee: This is an area I have prioritised and in respect of which I have been doing a huge amount of work, in conjunction with a large number of agencies, front-line workers and colleagues across the House, to try to improve the services and supports and put victims at the very centre of everything we do. An Garda Síochána plays a vital role in all of that. Gardaí are hugely...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

James Lawless: I acknowledge and appreciate all the work being done in this area. I recognise in particular the work done by the Minister, along with my colleague, Senator Chambers, and others, in regard to the provisions on stalking and other advances that have been made in recent times. I raise this issue as a male who has many significant female others, not least my daughters and wife. One of my...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

Helen McEntee: I agree that it is about improving the criminal justice system, providing resources for the Garda and making sure we have stronger laws, but there also are educational and information aspects. For the Deputy's daughter or anybody else going out, it is about knowing who one can turn to and the resources and supports that are available. Knowing the Garda is there to support people is hugely...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (24 May 2022)

James Lawless: I will not dwell on this much further other than to say the Minister is correct about the role of community gardaí, which has been expanded in recent years. There is a sensitivity and awareness of the issues, particularly in domestic situations. I am thinking in particular of the Garda personnel in Naas, including Superintendent Oliver Henry, Garda Gary Cogan, Garda Shane Smith and...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (24 May 2022)

Richard O'Donoghue: In order to get extra people on the ground, we need to tackle the issue where, if a garda is on a shift and if there is an arrest, for example, for antisocial behaviour, a car accident or whatever it is he or she has to do, approximately three hours of that garda's day then turns into paperwork. Those three hours are spent behind doors where he or she is not visible. To counteract that we...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (24 May 2022)

Helen McEntee: The premise of the Deputy's question is how we can have more Garda visibility within our communities. This is number one about ensuring that we have more gardaí and, obviously, the more we have, the more we have in our communities, towns and villages, be it behind the desk, on front-line duties, working in the specialist units that are being developed, economic crime, online fraud, the...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (24 May 2022)

Richard O'Donoghue: I thank the Minister. I appreciate everything done by An Garda Síochána. I see how dangerous the job is, in that 4,000 members of An Garda Síochána were assaulted in the past five years and some 243 members were injured after having been assaulted. For us in Limerick to have a good Garda service but we need a headquarters. I informed the Minister last week that...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: An Garda Síochána (24 May 2022)

Helen McEntee: I agree with the Deputy that we need to protect the gardaí and to ensure that when they go about their business and actively put themselves in harm's way to protect us, they need to be supported. We can do that in many ways. We can ensure that they have the stations and the areas to work in appropriately, that they have the technology and equipment that they need, that they have the...

Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (24 May 2022)

Bríd Smith: 6. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the timeframe for finalising a scoping report into the death of a person (details supplied); if progress has been made; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [26134/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (24 May 2022)

Bríd Smith: My question to the Minister is about the scoping report into the death of Shane O'Farrell that was insisted upon by the previous Minister, Deputy Flanagan, over two years ago. It is almost 11 years since Shane O'Farrell was killed in his home town of Monaghan. There has been a litany of failures by the State in delivering justice for the O'Farrell family. This delay is compounding that...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Inquiry into the Death of Mr. Shane O'Farrell (24 May 2022)

Helen McEntee: I thank the Deputy for raising this issue. As the Deputy will be aware, the retired judge, Judge Gerard Haughton, has been conducting a scoping exercise into the tragic circumstances surrounding Shane O'Farrell's death. The purpose of this exercise is to advise as to whether any further investigation or inquiry beyond those already carried out is necessary and, if so, to advise on the form...
