Vol. 203 Nbr. 12

Order of Business

We are all anxious on both sides of the House to save the Leader from a charge of conduct unbecoming in the ordering of business.More Button

I discuss matters with all of the leaders. As we have heard from Senator Norris, matters have not been agreed.More Button

I am just going on what we have heard this morning.More Button

I am anxious that the Leader will spell out for us what he proposes to do in the next two or three weeks. We have had an admirable practice of not taking more than one Stage of a Bill, especially ...More Button

Last week I asked the Leader about Dingle, but he did not give me an answer. It is a long time since the people of Dingle spoke in the plebiscite. The Minister, Deputy Gormley, gave a commitment.More Button

I know. I am here every day, too, and very much respect Senator O’Toole. I agree with the remarks of Senators Coffey, O’Toole, Bacik and Norris. The Leader must tell us when the Dubl...More Button

Order.More Button

Many more than that.More Button

I will try to be calm. I was surprised when this matter appeared on the revised programme for Government, given the state of the national economy, not to mention the other ailments afflicting ever...More Button

I am also a member of the Irish Deer Society and am familiar with colleagues in County Wicklow and throughout the North, most of whom are hunters. That is fine in its own way if it is properly lic...More Button

This occurs on other roads as well, including the Killorglin road. Deer enter my garden because I am fortunate enough to live on the edge of Killarney National Park on the Killorglin road.More Button

Not at all. I told the House we were conservationists. We protect the herd and see that it increases in size and grows stronger. Thanks to a former Taoiseach, we have populated Inishvickillane w...More Button

We have reached the stage where, to avoid a serious cull, we need other areas in which to place the native red. This is important, as there could be a TB attack or so on. Protecting the strain ag...More Button

I do not understand this issue, as cruelty is not intended. One deer ran into a school yard and another jumped out in front of a car. Those are two instances and perhaps there are a few others I ...More Button

It would be frightfully sad if, as has been said, this was in any way a forerunner — I am not saying it is and I sincerely hope it is not——More Button

The Senator knows I would take his word on that. More Button

We must protect rural customs, traditions and pastimes. These country pursuits are worth protecting and we should not do anything that might be injurious or harmful to them. For all those reasons...More Button
