Deputy Bernard J. Durkan - to discuss the ongoing and serious issue of the removal of the two youngest children from the custody of their mother, forcibly by order of the court, whereby the children were removed from the classroom by the Garda on the basis of the need to separate the children in order to secure a victory in court for the opposing side, notwithstanding the serious psychological damage done to both mother and children who have not been allowed to meet their mother.
