Eugene Murphy said ( about Larry Gogan ) : “Larry Gogan was a legend throughout Ireland and was particularly popular with radio listeners in rural Ireland. I was fortunate enough to meet Larry Gogan on one occasion during my twenty years working as a former radio presenter and producer. The respect that Larry had for all genres of music was a tribute to the man’s sense of fairness. Whether it was country, rock or trad, Larry would always spin the discs- he was without doubt a legend and a most valuable asset to RTE,” External link

Eugene Murphy warned : “The transition fund of €6 million, allocated from carbon tax revenue this year, was envisaged to help and assist annually as transition progressed towards 2027. Even if it is combined with the €5 million the ESB has pledged, it is simply not adequate and will not go far enough to meet the pace of transition and widescale job losses,” External link

Eugene Murphy said : “Minister McGrath informed us that the Irish Wheelchair Association received almost €40 million in funding nationally from his Department in 2019. "This beggars belief – if the Irish Wheelchair Association received this level of funding in 2019 combined with their own fundraising efforts surely they have enough money available to carry out the necessary upgrading and repair works which is estimated at €1.2m to keep the Cuisle Centre in Donamon open,” External link

Eugene Murphy said : “The July Provision is the extended school year which is not available to the vast majority of children with Down syndrome, leaving them at a huge educational disadvantage. However there was a recent High Court settlement whereby children at the centre of the action who have various educational and social needs now will receive additional schooling. In light of this recent ruling, I am calling on the Minister to now consider extending the July Provision Scheme to all children with Down Syndrome,” External link

The scheme is very beneficial as it makes sure children do not regress over the long summer holidays. "I have been contacted by numerous parents associated with the Down Syndrome Ireland Roscommon branch who feel that the exclusion of their children from the July Provision Scheme is a disgrace and an injustice. How can the Irish education system and the Government leave children with Down syndrome behind, and deny them the right to learn at their own pace? I believe in light of this recent High Court ruling it is imperative that the July Provision Scheme now be extended to all children with Down Syndrome,” External link

If we do not do something in the meantime, there will be carnage. There are so many near misses and so many people have been injured. Many have been killed over the years on the route from Tarmonbarry to Ballaghaderreen. Over the past 40 years since the N5 was built, more than 30 people have lost their lives on it.

If something is not urgently done in the meantime, there will be loss of life. There are measures that can be taken and which will not cost the Government or Transport Infrastructure Ireland, TII, a lot of money. A measure that has worked on other parts of the route is a roadside sign on which a driver's speed flashes up. That is one of the best ways of controlling traffic and the signs are working very well across the country,” External link

I was delighted to attend the official opening this morning as the local TD for the area. "This will see a long-term boil water notice lifted for over 7,726 people in the Roscommon region. This is an issue which I have worked on during my time as a county councillor and more recently since I was elected as a TD so I am delighted to finally see this project come to fruition.

Eugene Murphy concluded ( about The UK ) : “The Irish Agri-food industry has worked very hard to secure its place on the shelves in the UK and rightly has a reputation for good quality, high standard food. Every effort must be made to safeguard this industry and the hundreds of thousands of people employed in it, both directly and indirectly. "The Government therefore must ensure that sufficient contingency plans, including a financial aid package, are in place to insulate our beef and agri-food industry in as much as feasibly possible from the fall out of Brexit,” External link

Eugene Murphy said : “Local residents had expressed dismay at the Government’s approach to Direct Provision by locating over 80 asylum seekers in a small rural village such as Roosky thereby increasing the population by over 20% with no proper facilities but any protests to date have been peaceful and local people do not in any way condone these type of arson attacks and this type of activity must be utterly condemned,” External link

longfordleader Wednesday, February 13, 2019 2:25:00 PM EAT

Eugene Murphy concluded : “After more than three years, it is time to scrap it, bin it and, as other Deputies have said, treat people with respect. The one-size-fits-all approach that the Government takes at times is not the way to treat human beings. Not everyone who leaves JobPath does not want to work. In many cases, there are genuine reasons. There must be a better way for people. Many people just do not fit into certain categories, and elected representatives and Governments must acknowledge that. In this case, however, the Government does not acknowledge that the scheme is a fiasco. It is an unacceptable disaster that treats many people in society in a negative and derogatory way. We must send a clear message to scrap the scheme. It is not workable or acceptable,” External link

The Fianna Fáil TD went on to say however that the Government’s attitude to the people of Rooskey had been nothing short of scandalous. "The village of Rooskey is particularly close to my heart as I have lived close to the Roscommon side of the village all of my life and I acutely aware of how removed the people of the area feel from this whole process. I had been given a commitment that the Department would meet with the people of Rooskey in relation to this issue just as they met with people in Moville in Co Donegal but then the Department backed down. "There has been an extremely poor process of consultation and engagement with the community in Rooskey. We cannot continue to operate the present system of direct provision and dealing with asylum seekers by railroading them into small rural villages around the country where there is simply no proper infrastructure in place to meet their needs. "The Government’s approach of pushing refugees and asylum seekers into small towns around rural Ireland is simply not working- many of these small rural towns are already on their knees and the necessary infrastructure from a transport, educational and health aspect are just not in place and the Government needs to take responsibility for the lack of judgement in relation to this whole approach," said Deputy Murphy. "Everybody was hopeful that the former Shannon Key West hotel in Rooskey would have been opened as a commercial hotel as it would have provided a much needed injection of hope and been a significant vote of confidence in the area,” External link

Eugene Murphy said ( about Mayo General ) : “Of 20,032 ambulance hospital attendances in May, just 5,820 or 29.1% had a turnaround within the 20 minute timeframe. 1,126 ambulance calls took more than an hour with Mayo worst at 17.7% followed by Galway at 15.4%. It is quite alarming that an ambulance going to either of these two hospitals is almost twice as likely to have to wait an hour or more than to reach the turnaround target. In University Hospital Galway there was only a 7.9% success rate for the 20 minute timeframe while 84.5% (755 calls) took up to one hour to clear” External link

Eugene Murphy concluded : “Unsurprisingly, many of the hospitals with low turnaround rates also experience overcrowding in their emergency departments. The delays in transferring patients are clearly not the fault of the ambulance service. Rather there are symptomatic of the ongoing difficulties in our acute hospitals,” External link

Many people just do not fit into certain categories, and elected representatives and Governments must acknowledge that. In this case, however, the Government does not acknowledge that the scheme is a fiasco. It is an unacceptable disaster that treats many people in society in a negative and derogatory way. We must send a clear message to scrap the scheme. It is not workable or acceptable,” External link

Eugene Murphy said : "If, in fact, it proves to be the case that the fire was started deliberately then I would condemn such action out of hand. It is not representative of the Rooskey area and people are outraged," External link

Eugene Murphy concluded ( about Eugene Murphy ) : “I understand that a security man was in the premises when the fire broke out so there could have been a potential loss of life which is extremely serious," added Deputy Murphy. The Fianna Fáil TD went on to say however that the Government’s attitude to the people of Rooskey had been nothing short of scandalous. "The village of Rooskey is particularly close to my heart as I have lived close to the Roscommon side of the village all of my life and I acutely aware of how removed the people of the area feel from this whole process. I had been given a commitment that the Department would meet with the people of Rooskey in relation to this issue just as they met with people in Moville in Co Donegal but then the Department backed down. "There has been an extremely poor process of consultation and engagement with the community in Rooskey. We cannot continue to operate the present system of direct provision and dealing with asylum seekers by railroading them into small rural villages around the country where there is simply no proper infrastructure in place to meet their needs. "The Government’s approach of pushing refugees and asylum seekers into small towns around rural Ireland is simply not working- many of these small rural towns are already on their knees and the necessary infrastructure from a transport, educational and health aspect are just not in place and the Government needs to take responsibility for the lack of judgement in relation to this whole approach," said Deputy Murphy. "Everybody was hopeful that the former Shannon Key West hotel in Rooskey would have been opened as a commercial hotel as it would have provided a much needed injection of hope and been a significant vote of confidence in the area,” External link

Eugene Murphy said ( about Mayo General ) : “Of 20,032 ambulance hospital attendances in May, just 5,820 or 29.1% had a turnaround within the 20 minute timeframe. 1,126 ambulance calls took more than an hour with Mayo worst at 17.7% followed by Galway at 15.4%. It is quite alarming that an ambulance going to either of these two hospitals is almost twice as likely to have to wait an hour or more than to reach the turnaround target. In University Hospital Galway there was only a 7.9% success rate for the 20 minute timeframe while 84.5% (755 calls) took up to one hour to clear” External link

Eugene Murphy concluded : “Unsurprisingly, many of the hospitals with low turnaround rates also experience overcrowding in their emergency departments. The delays in transferring patients are clearly not the fault of the ambulance service. Rather there are symptomatic of the ongoing difficulties in our acute hospitals,” External link
