Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile commends ‘thoughtful and inclusive’ discussions at Seanad Committee hearing

Sinn Féin’s Leader in the Seanad, Senator Niall Ó Donnghaile has thanked contributors to today’s session of the Seanad Public Consultation Committee on the Constitutional Future of the Island of Ireland for their respectful and thoughtful discussions.

Speaking today, Senator Ó Donnghaile said:

“Today was a historic first as the first session of the Seanad Public Consultation Committee on the Constitutional Future of the Island of Ireland was held. I commend the Seanad Cathaoirleach for convening the hearings.

“I want to thank all those who took part and engaged in thoughtful, respectful discussions which were thought-provoking and constructive.

“Today’s session was a really positive event which included a broad range of voices from across Irish life. The discussions reflect the growing interest in the topic of constitutional change and the many opportunities it would bring for communities across Ireland. 

“I want to express my gratitude to all who took part and I am looking forward to these conversations continuing in the coming weeks and months. It is clear that there is an appetite for respectful, inclusive dialogue on this issue.

“I particularly want to pay tribute to the passionate and articulate young people who played such a central role in today’s session. It is their future and it is only right that their voices should be at the heart of discussions about a new Ireland.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
