He did John. And his government accepted FF’s motion blocking new public maternity hospitals having separate private facilities. Then he responded to my PQ on same saying he was building in those private facilities anyway.

Marian’s guest. Countered facts on some of Trump’s special problems by explaining that such beliefs are down to people suffering from ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’.

If you disagree with Trump’s actions using facts, you have a mental illness? Extraordinary stuff. Found much of that really quite disgusting, dressed up with a smile.

Democracy’s greatest strength is also its greatest weakness...people like this get the same say as everyone else. Terrifying interview, because so many others share her views.

If we want Ireland's universities to go back up in the the answer is simple. Stop cutting their funding. Trinity has fallen more than 40 places to 164th place, while UCD remains in the top 250

In June Dáil unanimously voted on my motion for only public healthcare to be available in new National Maternity Hospital (paid for by taxpayers). But it seems the Government is going to ignore that vote & offer private healthcare on site anyway. That's not how democracy works

One of the best ways to fix our broken health service is to get Budgets under control. We need forensic accountants to make sure taxpayer money is spent properly. No more nasty surprises like the €2bn price tag of the National Children's Hospital

There isn’t a single one of us whose lives haven’t been touched by suicide. Has it happened to your friend, your family, or a friend of a friend? I’m so sorry for your pain, hurt and loss. Let’s put aside politics today and just spread a message together of hope and support

You’re fully entitled to have confidence in FG on healthcare John. I’m just pointing out that the facts directly contradict the narrative that the failures we’re seeing are somehow inevitable, and thus not the fault of the person, or government, in charge.

€2bn of tax payers money doesn’t guarantee work will be done on time?!? Just because we’re not surprised doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be outraged. One of the ways back to decent healthcare is creating a system with strong financial, info and admin controls

I’ve spoken to so many people in our constituency that this has happened to. It’s more than just inconvenient. Accessibility is a question of equality. I’m glad Irish Rail responded in the end but we can and should do better as a society. Equal access for all.

Almost 500 children are right now waiting for mental health help in Wicklow, Kildare and South Dublin. We won't accept long waiting lists for a child with a broken arm or leg. Mental health is no less important. Read full story here:
