The Case for a Secondary School in Moycullen

On Tuesday, I raised the need for a Secondary School in Moycullen. Unfortunately, from the Minister for Education’s reply, this will be a slow burner Senator Seán Kyne I welcome the Minister of State. I am delighted to speak about schools in my area of Moycullen, County Galway. Some people describe Moycullen as a village […]

Proposal for a National Community Centre Fund

There are many Moycullen people, both still with us and those gone to their eternal rest, who have campaigned through the years for a Community Centre in the village. The Land Commission and Galway County Council were approached at various times but unfortunately no site was available for such a centre. Since the early 2000’s […]

Launch of the Economic Recovery Plan

It’s great to see the Economic Recovery Plan being launched today which sets out renewed supports, investment, and policies for a new stage of economic recovery. The Plan includes over €3.5 billion in enterprise and labour market supports and almost €1 billion under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The ambition of the plan is […]

This week in the Seanad, I raised the need for debate on Public Transport particularly in rural areas where options are limited, in the context of Climate targets.

I join Senators Chambers and Black in raising the situation in Palestine and look forward to hearing the comments of the Minister, Deputy Coveney, this evening. I have always believed that as long as there are five permanent members of the UN Security Council, issues such as this can never be truly resolved. I ask […]

Last Tuesday in the Seanad, I raised the very ambitious and exciting plans for the Galway Harbour extension. It’s a major step in the redevelopment of Galway.

We are back in the convention centre, which might not be the best place for Parliament to sit, but is a wonderful setting and vista. It is great to see the rejuvenation of this area of Dublin, which has taken place over a large number of years. Last week in Galway, representatives attended a virtual presentation […]

Galway University Hospital Emergency Department

On Monday, I raised the overcrowding and long waits in the Galway University Hospital Emergency Department in the Seanad. I called for immediate action from both Saolta and the HSE nationally to introduce measures which would combat delays and overcrowding at the Emergency Department. I also called for urgent progress on the provision of the […]

At yesterday’s Joint Health Committee, I questioned Secretary General, Robert Watt on the RTÉ Prime Time Investigates programme on data retention.

Sláintecare Proposals for Elective/Ambulatory Hospital

Yesterday, I raised the delays in healthcare infrastructure in Galway with Minister of State, Frank Feighan in the Department of Health. I welcome the Minister of State, Deputy Feighan. I am delighted to see somebody from the west here as this topic relates to hospital services in the west, in particular the Galway region. The […]

Update on the rollout of the Covid-19 Vaccination

Last Tuesday, I raised a number of issues at the Joint Committee on Health, such as the concerns about the second dose of AstraZeneca, vaccination on the islands and vaccination for the housebound. Senator Seán Kyne I welcome the expert witnesses. My question is similar to Deputy Durkan’s. I was contacted by a lady this […]
