UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: Discussion
I thank Dr. Muldoon and Dr. McAuley. I welcome the young adults in the Gallery. It is great to have them here as we mark the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. I thank the witnesses for finding the time to attend this meeting. I know they have left an event that they were hosting in Dublin Castle. I would like them to share with us and with the viewers who are looking in what exactly is going on in Dublin Castle. There is a little disconnect. I would love to be in Dublin Castle, to be honest. It would be important for the viewers looking in to get a flavour of what is going on over there today.
