I am very grate\ue001ul to the Ombudsman \ue001or Children\u2019s O\ue001\ue000ce, and to Emily Logan and
Sophie Magennis in particular, \ue001or the opportunity to undertake this ambitious project.
The O\ue001\ue000ce gave me every support towards its completion and I am grate\ue001ul to all the sta\ue001\ue001
\ue001or their assistance and input throughout.
This research could not have been undertaken without the research assistance, support and commitment o\ue001 Aisling Parkes o\ue001 the Faculty o\ue001 Law, UCC. As always, I am grate\ue001ul \ue001or the support o\ue001 the Dean and all my colleagues at the Faculty o\ue001 Law, UCC.
Many people who work with and \ue001or children and young people gave willingly o\ue001 their
time to allow me to understand the problems \ue001aced by children and their \ue001amilies and the
obstacles that underlie these di\ue001\ue000culties. I am particularly grate\ue001ul to Mary O\u2019Connor,
