Some suggestions for you :

My genuine belief is that if we can get through the eurozone crisis from a political point of view, we've got a lot of engines that can drive our economy, that will restore confidence and get us moving on.

I am a big believer in Springsteen, I like his social comment; I like the commitment he puts into his work.

The U.K. and Ireland are like-minded on E.U. matters, and the process of working together in Brussels has built an immense store of knowledge, personal relationships, and trust between our governments.

I'm a big fan of Springsteen. Obviously, his social commentary is very powerful for me. I like his album 'The Rising.' It's not a new one, but it sticks in my mind because of what it says to me.

Ireland cannot become the collector general for the world. We can only tax on profits generated in the country here.

The Seanad question was one element of a process of change and reform to politics that government has been pursuing.

I just think that the older you get, the more you appreciate the responsibility of politics.

For me, it is all about people having jobs, and that is why I make no apology for having focused relentlessly on employment and job creation.

The decision of a majority of people in the United Kingdom to vote to leave the European Union is profoundly disappointing.

I think - whether it's music, literature, sport, art, whatever you want - there's nobody who can stop us if we only apply ourselves with the singular objective of being the best in the world.

Irish research will contribute to global progress and have the potential to help all countries realise the potential of their land sectors in addressing climate change - this means reducing emissions, adapting to impacts, and enhancing and improving carbon sinks.

The re-establishment of a hard border on the island of Ireland would be a step backwards and present an opportunity for others, with malign agendas, to exploit for destructive purposes.

You need to talk to people, and you need to hear what it is they have to say.

For too long, Ireland has neglected its children.
