AbstractBarnardos’ vision is of an Ireland where childhood is valued and every child is cherished equally. We welcomed Taoiseach Bertie Ahern’s thoughtful and considered words at the announcement of the Government’s decision to hold a referendum when he spoke of the need to recognise children’s rights in the Constitution and commit to truly valuing childhood.
