I thank the Minister. I should at this juncture welcome to our meeting our guests for the second part of our presentation, namely Mr. Ian O'Sullivan and Ms Eimear Murphy from Coláiste Treasa in Kanturk, who are the BT Young Scientists of the Year 2015. They will be contributing to the second part of our meeting. We also welcome their families and school community to the meeting and thank them for being here this morning. As members know, their study for the Young Scientist exhibition dealt with the impact of parental alcohol consumption on the drinking behaviour of children and adolescents, which makes it appropriate for what we are discussing this morning.
