Bill Allowing Murdered Children To Be Named Approved In Seanad


A bill that would allow murdered children to be named in the media has been approved in the Seanad this evening.

It would also allow the press to name adults accused of killing children during court cases.

The change to the Children’s Act was proposed after a Court of Appeal ruling last October, which effectively banned the practice.

The bill will now go before the Dáil, and the government will be supporting it.
