Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Oct 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I agree wholeheartedly with Senator O'Loughlin's remarks on Changing Places. It is transformative in terms of what it does in helping families facing real difficulties in daily life. The dignity of knowing they have support for their loved ones and that they can plan a day or a series of days out makes a real difference in their lives. This is something I have raised in the Seanad...

Seanad: British Government Legacy Proposals: Motion (13 Oct 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: The British Government's amnesty proposals for dealing with the people that its armed forces killed, openly and secretly, is an attempt to cover up murder by the British state on a grand scale. It is aimed at protecting those who pulled the triggers and those who politically gave its armed forces permission to carry out public and secret executions, in the main of people not involved in the...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (12 Oct 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom comhbhrón ó chroí a dhéanamh ar bhás Paddy Moloney, comhbhunaitheoir an bhanna ceoil The Chieftains. Ba laoch mór ceoil agus cultúir na hÉireann é atá imithe anois ar shlí na fírinne agus go ndéana Dia trócaire air. I thank the Leader for outlining the Order of Business. As other colleagues stated, we will...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Coiste na nIarchimí (7 Oct 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I think we got the gist of it. That is certainly the case from my perspective. I was able to follow most of it, but I do not know if other members are in agreement.

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Coiste na nIarchimí (7 Oct 2021)

Tá brón orainn faoin droch-chumarsáid a bhí ansin. I thank Mr. Culbert, Mr. Quigley and Mr. O'Hagan for the contributions. I was at the previous committee at which Mr....

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: Engagement with Coiste na nIarchimí (7 Oct 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will conclude my remarks because Mr. Molloy is looking to come in. This issue is perhaps something we could tease out in that follow-up engagement when we meet with Mr. Culbert in Belfast, if God spares us. I hope there is action because he rightly criticised the lack of action. This is a very pertinent issue. I again make the point that we are the Joint Committee on the Implementation...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (5 Oct 2021)

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Covid-19 Pandemic (30 Sep 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Cuirim fáilte roimh an Aire Stáit, an Teachta Butler. Gabhaim buíochas leis an Seanadóir Currie as ligean dom labhairt ar dtús. I have a couple of technical questions. I appreciate that the Minister of State might not have all the technical answers but I trust that she will use her good offices to instruct officials to achieve clarity and to communicate. I...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Covid-19 Pandemic (30 Sep 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: The 50:50 approach is always good. I thank the Minister of State for her reply. I appreciate that there were many technical questions and we might need that additional information if she could furnish us with it. I have two brief points, and Senator Currie referred to them. People had intended this from a genuine and sincere motivation. We are sure they were trying to assist online...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence: Appointment of Special Envoys: Secretary General of the Department of the Taoiseach (29 Sep 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the Chairman and Mr. Fraser. I am fully cognisant of the advice the Chairman has offered to the committee as to the remit of this meeting but I want to ask a question on something that Mr. Fraser offered in the course of his own contribution. It is entirely up to himself whether he takes the opportunity to answer it. This relates to some of the concerns about leaks from Cabinet,...
