Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Mairead Farrell: Australia's new Prime Minister, Mr. Anthony Albanese, has rightly expressed genuine concern for Mr. Julian Assange. He is on the record on several occasions saying that he does not see what purpose is served by the ongoing pursuit of Mr. Assange and, most importantly, that enough is enough. On Friday, in response to the British Home Secretary's decision to approve Mr. Assange's extradition,...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Paul Murphy: New figures from EUROSTAT will confirm what people feel, which is that Ireland is now officially the most expensive country in Europe. Prices are 40% above the EU average. Part of that is down to the electricity prices we are paying, which are some of the highest in Europe. A unit of electricity here costs 26% more than the EU average and the electricity companies - every single one of...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I am going to step outside the consensus as the Taoiseach outlined it in his nine-page contribution regarding Europe and everybody being on side. I am horrified that over the nine pages, there is not a single word about bringing the war to an end or about the way in which we have used our voice in Europe and on the UN Security Council. What are we doing, as a proud, neutral country, to stop...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Brian Leddin: I am sharing time with Deputy Christopher O’Sullivan. I welcome the debate. I might begin by addressing Deputy Connolly’s concluding point. She indicated we should stop what we are doing, but I am not sure whether she was suggesting we should stop the expansion of the European project. I think that if she spoke to the citizens of Ukraine, Georgia or Moldova, whose very...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn: Three weeks ago, a delegation of fishermen from all around the coast of Ireland went to Brussels and met with the director-general of the European Commission that deals with fisheries, Charlina Vitcheva. That delegation included representatives from six national fishing organisations and two co-ops, one based in Greencastle in north Donegal and the Galway and Aran co-op. We had...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Ivana Bacik: The barbaric imperial war of conquest against Ukraine by Putin's Russia is a challenge to which the EU is responding. The Taoiseach has given us a comprehensive update on the recent meeting of the European Council on 30 and 31 May. The Taoiseach has also spoken to us about the meeting of the European Council in Brussels later this week. I believe, and we in the Labour Party believe, that...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: The response to the war in Ukraine dominates the agenda of this European Council, and rightly so. We would fully expect that. I have just emerged from a Dóchas briefing in the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence, where it was spelled out in real and very stark terms how the impact of the conflict in Ukraine extends far beyond just European borders. The UN...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: I too would like to welcome the decision to grant Ukraine EU candidate status. I hope that matter is ratified as outlined by the Taoiseach. The meeting of the European Council this week occurs against the backdrop of the British Government's full frontal attack on the Irish protocol and the Good Friday Agreement. Boris Johnson's reckless decision to push ahead with legislation to...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

John Brady: The role of the EU in addressing Boris Johnson's government's shameful and opportunistic exploitation of the issues surrounding the protocol remains critical. The British Government, along with its allies in the DUP, is using the protocol to undermine the Good Friday Agreement. The British Government cannot and must not be allowed to play free and easy with an international agreement which...

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Pre-European Council Meeting: Statements (21 Jun 2022)

Micheál Martin: Beidh cruinniú Comhairle na hEorpa ar siúl an tseachtain seo, ar an 23 agus 24 Meitheamh agus beidh cruinniú an euro summit ann ag an am céanna. An t-ábhar is tábhachtaí ná an t-iarratas ón Úcráin chun a bheith mar bhall den Aontas Eorpach. Tá gach aon dealramh ar an scéal anois go dtarlóidh sé sin ag an...

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Catherine Murphy: On behalf of the Social Democrats, I welcome the Currie family and again express our sympathy on their loss. When facing up against the weight of systemic oppression, it is easy to feel as if any action you take is futile and that the personal risk always outweighs the reward but Austin Currie provides a really good example of how a seemingly small action can light a spark and lead to...

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Mattie McGrath: On behalf of the Rural Independent Group, I too am pleased to be able to say a few words and to welcome Austin Currie's wife, Annita, his children, Estelle, Caitríona, Dualta, Austin and Emer, and the former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny. Austin Currie was one of the leading figures in the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland and, as we know, co-founded the SDLP. He became a poster boy...

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Jack Chambers: I rise today, as a fellow representative of Dublin West, to pay tribute to the proud and lasting legacy of Austin Currie on the island of Ireland. I acknowledge all of his family who are here today. My own fondest memory is of an afternoon he and I spent in the final days of a recent election, which Senator Doherty will remember, when we were canvassing at the same church gate. It was very...

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Catherine Connolly: Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam dílis. Anois, mar chomhartha ómóis, seasfaimid ar feadh nóiméid.

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Members rose.

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Mary Lou McDonald: Austin Currie, through his long political career, was an influential Irish public figure. As a leading member of the early civil rights campaign, co-founder of the SDLP, Minister in the short-lived 1974 power-sharing Executive in the North and Fine Gael Minister of State, Austin had a long and distinguished record of public service. He first served in the old Stormont Parliament for East...

Death of Former Member: Expressions of Sympathy (21 Jun 2022)

Ivana Bacik: I am glad to speak for the Labour Party to pay tribute to Austin Currie. As a politician and civil rights campaigner, he leaves a tremendous legacy and had the extraordinary achievement of serving as Minister in both jurisdictions on this island. Reviewing the remarkable journey of Austin Currie's life and his strong legacy on peace and integration, one can only imagine what it must have...
