Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Citizenship Applications (26 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire as a bheith linn agus as an cheist seo a ghlacadh. What I am asking for is very straightforward. People have been in touch with me and many of my MLA and MP colleagues. Their main issues relate to the cost involved in applying for naturalisation and the complexity of the process. I appreciate and fully understand that citizenship is very precious, that we...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Citizenship Applications (26 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank the Minister for her comprehensive answer. There is quite a lot to get through there. I am very keen to work with her and her Department in terms of offering positive suggestions as to how this could be reviewed and how we could look at a more bespoke arrangement for people. The Minister will know from her previous life in another Department that, given the consequences of Brexit,...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (26 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I share the concerns of colleagues on the deeply shocking revelations in last night's "RTÉ Investigates" programme. I am conscious that Deputy Seán Crowe, the Chair of the Joint Committee on Health, is convening that committee this afternoon to consider how it will react and take next steps on this issue. I have no doubt it is something the Seanad will revisit in the coming...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on Business Sector (22 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank both our guests. They have provided comprehensive and detailed presentations. Like everything in these scenarios, it is a bit of a moveable feast. There is a live dynamic to much of this, so it is really useful for the committee to get as broad a range of information as possible to help to shape and inform our report going forward, as the Chairman referenced. Several of the...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Impact of Brexit on Business Sector (22 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will make a brief supplementary point. Mr. Anderson is right to locate this as being not only an economic and academic matter, but also an issue of citizens' rights. Consider the context of the Good Friday Agreement, strand two, everything else that has been agreed and Article 2 of the Constitution. This crazy situation affects someone from Dublin who attends Queens University Belfast to...

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

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Guím beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig ar an Cheannaire, ar mo chomhghleacaithe agus ar na daoine ar fud na tíre agus ar fud an domhain. It is an important opportunity, as we approach St. Patrick's Day, for us to remember and recognise the very important bond and link we have with our diaspora throughout the world. It will come as no surprise to colleagues in the House...

Seanad: Personal Insolvency (Amendment) Bill 2020: Second Stage (12 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Tá fáilte is fiche roimh an Aire Stáit chuig an Seanad don phlé inniu. Sinn Féin will support this Bill to the next Stage as it represents an important legislation in the context of the pandemic. Our general approach has been to facilitate changes to the law which are sensible and address the outworkings of Covid and the attendant restrictions within wider society....

Seanad: Seachtain na Gaeilge: Ráitis (8 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Aire agus an Aire Stáit agus cuirim fáilte rompu. Tá seanfhocal ann i mBéarla faoi bheith ag fanacht ar an mbus agus ansin tagann dhá cheann. Níl a fhios agam an bhfuil a leithéid de sheanfhocal againn sa Ghaeilge. Beidh orm ceist a chur ar mo shean-mhúinteoir Brendy Ó Fiaich fá dtaobh de sin.É sin...

Seanad: Private Rental Sector: Motion (8 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas le mo chomhghleacaithe Shinn Féin as an Rún seo a leagadh os ár gcomhair anocht. Ar chuala an tAire Stáit scéalta na ndaoine atá i ndrochstaid agus iad ag streachailt leis an gcíos? Thug mé teachtaireacht láidir do dhaoine bliain ó shin san olltoghchán maidir le cúrsaí tithíochta. Tá athrú...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Cross-Border Healthcare Directive: Discussion (8 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I thank our visitors. I apologise for missing the start of the meeting and the contributions. I hope my initial question will not be too repetitive. I am still not clear around the issue of cataract treatment and hip replacement, for example, under this directive. How does it apply to ordinary citizens in terms of retaining access to healthcare in the North? I would be grateful if that...

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

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Maith thú, a Chathaoirligh, as úsáid a bhaint as do chúpla focal. Tá ardmholadh tuillte agat. Go raibh maith agat as sin. I wish to raise yesterday's unilateral decision by the British Government to extend aspects of the grace period of the protocol.I think the Leader and colleagues would agree that things are heading in a very negative direction and it is...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: The Irish Language and the New Decade New Approach Agreement: Conradh na Gaeilge (2 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas as an gcur i láthair ar maidin. Tréaslaím leis an méid atá ráite ag uachtarán Chonradh na Gaeilge ar maidin. Tá práinn ann ó thaobh na reachtaíochta seo. Ní hamháin go bhfuil sé comhaontaithe ag an dá Rialtas agus ag na páirtithe ó Thuaidh, ach tá sé de dhíth ag an...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Implementation of the Good Friday Agreement: The Irish Language and the New Decade New Approach Agreement: Conradh na Gaeilge (2 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Gabhaim buíochas leis an Chathaoirleach as an chomhairle sin. I thank the Chairman for his guidance in that regard. The motion is worth looking at and I think it is worth members' consideration. I take the Chairman's guidance in regard to it. The suggestion is that the committee would write and I think we could agree that fairly rapidly.

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: We will not be too taxing on the Cathaoirleach this year but, if God spares us, next year we will be putting him to the test. Mar atá ráite ag an Seanadóir Garvey cheana féin, is cúis cheiliúrtha go bhfuil tús curtha cheana féin le Seachtain na Gaeilge. Mar atá an cás le roinnt imeachtaí eile, is mór an trua go bhfuil na srianta i...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: Ba mhaith liom fáilte a chur roimh an Aire. As the Minister will be aware, Sinn Féin will continue to play its part in the collective, and importantly all-island, effort in ending the Covid nightmare that our people and people throughout the world have been burdened with for over a year. On handling the virus, we take our guidance from the medical experts on the measures that are...

Seanad: Health (Amendment) Bill 2021: Committee and Remaining Stages (1 Mar 2021)

Niall Ó Donnghaile: I will not prolong the debate needlessly. I referred to all of our amendments in my earlier contribution. The purpose of amendment No. 9 is fairly clear. I just want to touch on the point made by Senator Bacik on her amendment and the Minister's concluding statement on Second Stage about the jump from 20-odd countries on the list to 32. We are seeking, as we always do in this House,...
