Michael’s address to the Dail on NAMA

Published on Monday, 01 March 2010 12:07

Government of the people, for the people, by the people, these are the immortal words of Abraham Lincon.  What the NAMA legislation represents is Government of the developers, for the banks, by Fianna Fail and the Greens.  It gives me no pleasure whatsoever to speak on this legislation.   The country as a whole has been devalued by the despicable behaviour of a few.  While it's easy to accuse the developers of the greater part of this debacle, in my view, it was the bankers.   There were a number of telling signs that we had gone off …

The establishment of a dedicated Garda drugs unit for County Wexford is broadly welcomed by FG TD Michael D'Arcy. “The need for such a dedicated unit, to operate right across the county, has been patently obvious for some time,” Deputy D'Arcy said.  “There isn't a town, village or small community that hasn't been affected by the scourge of drugs,” he said.  “Drug pushers are operating right across this county and the public's perception is that they are operating with impunity.  Hopefully this special drugs squad will be success …

Published on Friday, 06 November 2009 11:44

Continuing it's tradition of announcing things only to withdraw them down the line (e.g. reducing class sizes, medical cards for over ‘70s) the Government is to scrap its plan to vaccinate teenage girls against cervical cancer.

Published on Thursday, 16 April 2009 11:36

Getting commuters out of their cars and into and out of the centre of Dublin faster is achievable but the political will to break the traffic deadlock  isn't there.  That's the conclusion reached by Fine Gael Deputy Michael D'Arcy who says he's surprised by the Minister for Transport's laissez faire attitude to a problem that affects so many every day. Raising the matter of extra park and ride facilities for commuters coming into the city in the Dail recently, Deputy D'Arcy said that commuters, fed up of sitting in their cars making little …
