Everyone knows Parental Alienation is as real as anyother form o child abuse and domestic abuse

Only the Un informed would call it pseudo - thankfully the Bernard Durkan was put in his waffling place by a legally trained and experienced TD standing in for the Minister of Justice.

Thankfully Ireland has progressive policy on Parental Alienation and are going to address it and false allegations of it too.
