National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: This is a good news story without a shadow of a doubt. It secures the future of the National Symphony Orchestra. For a period, its future existence was imperilled. It is positive that it is being put on a statutory framework after the transfer earlier this year and that it is being matched with additional money to reinforce that and try to bring it up to full strength. I commend the...

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Verona Murphy: I am sure that was music to the Minister's ears. Deputy Gannon is next. He has three minutes.

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Gary Gannon: I will not be that long. I welcome the Minister's contribution and, especially, the transfer of the NSO and the choirs from RTÉ to the NCH. At its best and when done correctly, the NSO is an invaluable reflection of Ireland’s musical and cultural heritage, and there is probably no home more suitable than the NCH, which, when done correctly as it often is, is a champion of the...

Richard Boyd Barrett: Mine is not.

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Gary Gannon: Is it not? The Deputy's are never short. The aim must transcend the Bill and go into the intention of opening our National Concert Hall to communities who have not felt it as a home or place where they can perform their works. I am excited to see how it develops. I commend the Minister on bringing forward the Bill and on the work she has done in her Ministry, and I look forward to hearing...

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Marc Ó Cathasaigh: I am relieved that Deputy Ó Murchú has left the Chamber because I was intimidated by the stellar heights of grade 5. I could manage the right hand and the left hand but playing two hands together at any given time always eluded me. Preparing for this debate I read through the Boaden report. It begins with a series of quotations from different periods in Irish life, starting with...

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: Tá fáilte roimh an mBille seo. Is dócha nach bhfuil deacrachtaí ag duine ar bith leis agus tá achan rud ráite faoin am seo ag an Aire agus ag an Teachta Ó Snodaigh, mar sin níl mé cinnte caidé a bhfuil mé chun a rá. I generally find an ability to fill space. This is relatively straightforward.

Catherine Martin: It is an unusual situation.

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Ruairi Ó Murchú: We all support the idea of what has happened. This is retrospective legislation. If I was unfair, I could probably make a complaint about that but that would probably be a stretch. We all like the idea that the NSO will be situated within the NCH. I quite like the idea of the three associated choirs feeding into each other. I suppose that is something that needs to happen with regard to...

National Cultural Institutions (National Concert Hall) (Amendment) Bill 2022: Second Stage (6 Oct 2022)

Aengus Ó Snodaigh: Cuireann Sinn Féin fáilte roimh an mBille seo. Tá sé ag teacht le fada. Tá súil agam go n-éireoidh agus go mbeidh an t-ádh leis an National Concert Hall, an t-oirceastra, Cór na nÓg agus Cór Linn, chomh maith leis an gcór nua, the National Symphony Chorus agus iad bogtha. Tá sé seo tar éis tarlú cheana...
