Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Joan Collins: Where is it then?

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: He was quite clear at the outset of his tenure to ensure that local authorities drew down all of their moneys for Traveller accommodation. The Deputy may recall, historically, there had been an underspend in many local authorities. All local authorities, under the Traveller accommodation programme, need to draw down their moneys and spend their allocations. Many Travellers, particularly...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: The Minister of State should be under no misunderstanding. The Department allocated the four caravans to Galway, not the local authority.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: It is under the pilot scheme, I understand.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: It was the Department that allocated the four caravans. The problem is the Department; that is why we are here today. The local authority and the Ombudsman will sort it.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: I will relay that back to the Department.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Heritage Projects

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Heritage Projects (1 Dec 2022)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: I know the Minister of State and others in the House have an interest in the architecture of Dublin, the country as a whole and our history. The Iveagh Markets on Francis Street is a building of major importance. It is a huge site in the Liberties. It was built at the turn of the 20th century as an indoor market. I think the Minister of State was down there recently. He will understand...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Health Services Staff (1 Dec 2022)

Colm Burke: I am just concerned about the use of the words "being examined". That is not going to sort my problem out. There is a new unit that has been physically built and is fully equipped, ready to roll, and there will be no use of that facility for at least three months now. We intended to open it in the middle of December. It will now not be opened because this post has not been sanctioned. My...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Health Services Staff (1 Dec 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: I am afraid my closing response will not give the Deputy any additional assurance. I will certainly take his concerns back to the Minister for Health. The response states that an additional consultant ophthalmic surgeon post will be required to further expand the service and that approval for the post is being examined in the context of funding made available for the HSE in 2023. That is...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Health Services Staff (1 Dec 2022)

Colm Burke: In fairness to Gerry O'Dwyer, who retired yesterday as the CEO of the South/Southwest Hospital Group, he wanted to sign off on this before he left. He tried everything to get it signed off but that has to be done at a national level. He has now retired and he is disappointed that this has not been signed off. I ask that I get a response to this within the next seven days.

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Health Services Staff (1 Dec 2022)

Malcolm Noonan: I appreciate that. We will certainly get the Deputy a response on that. I have figures here that I will pass on to him about the waiting lists for ophthalmology services, some of which are positive. Waiting lists have decreased in some areas. I will take the Deputy's concerns back to the Minister directly and get a response for him.

Traveller Accommodation

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Éamon Ó Cuív: I am glad the Minister of State is in the House to listen to this. What he has to try to get into his mind is what it would be like if tonight the people who are here had to sleep in a 20-year-old caravan or mobile home that is damp, in this kind of cold weather, and had to do this on a council halting site in this day and age. Quite rightly, we give out about the conditions for people...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Traveller Accommodation (1 Dec 2022)

Joan Collins: One of the recommendations of the Joint Committee on Key Issues affecting the Traveller Community was: The audit [in recommendation No. 68] should include the mobile homes or caravans that are used as permanent dwellings. In the case of people/families wishing to remain living in caravans/mobile homes where they are deficient, they should be immediately replaced by new caravans/mobile...
