EirGrid, Electricity and Turf (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (28 Jun 2022)

Darren O'Rourke: I would like to register my concern at the rushed nature of this Bill. Deputies only got sight of the Bill last Tuesday and it has not undergone any pre-legislative scrutiny, although we had a briefing on it, which was welcome. We in Sinn Féin and others in opposition had other important questions we wanted answered and we wanted to hear from stakeholders. There are still very many...

Mick Barry: Yes, but there is the money message.

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Micheál Martin: One of the issues historically has been delivery within the schools. Some teachers feel uncomfortable delivering the programme, particularly at post-primary level. I would argue that more work needs to be done in that regard. Legislation needs amendment also but the more critical issue is curriculum, the delivery of the curriculum, the capacity to deliver it and to develop a culture across...

EirGrid, Electricity and Turf (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (28 Jun 2022)

Ossian Smyth: I move: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time." Having regard to the unprecedented pressures on the energy sector, I am pleased to have the opportunity to commend the Bill to the House. I will open the debate by setting the context for the actions to be taken on foot of the Bill. Although many Members will be familiar with these issues, it is important to take this opportunity to set...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Micheál Martin: I propose to take Questions Nos. 19 to 26, inclusive, together. Like public representatives generally, I meet church leaders informally from time to time in the course of attending official functions. The most recent formal meeting I had took place on 15 April 2021, when I met the leaders of the all-island Christian churches, including the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Ireland,...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Ivana Bacik: An agreement with the Catholic Church on patronage was reached in March to cover five towns that currently have no multidenominational primary school provision and to cover the cities of Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway and encourage greater levels of divestment in keeping with parents' wishes. The proof, however, will be in how many schools change their status, given the Catholic Church...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Mick Barry: A huge number of people came out on the streets of Dublin at the weekend to participate in Pride. It was a real celebration but it was also a protest against those who try to limit the progress of this community, including the progress of our transgender community. I put it to the Taoiseach that a society whose capital can host an event like that, a society that repealed the eighth...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

John Brady: In November last year, the Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Deputy Roderic O'Gorman, wrote to six religious congregations to inform them of the Government's intention to establish the mother and baby institutions payment scheme. Individual meetings with orders to discuss their contribution to this scheme took place over the past few months. Will the...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Brendan Smith: Some years ago, to my understanding there was considerable engagement at official and political level between the Government and church leaders of all denominations on the advancement of the peace process and the need to deal with the ongoing concerns of some communities. My understanding was that at the time, church leaders, who have an all-Ireland remit, were an important conduit on issues...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Church-State Relations (28 Jun 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: The overwhelming votes for marriage equality and repeal of the eighth amendment were a statement that people do not believe the Catholic Church should decide about people's sexual lives, their identities or women's right to control their own bodies, yet the Government continues to defer to the Catholic Church by allowing it to control much of our health service and most of our education...
