Barnardos. (2005). Budget 2006: Invest in Children’s Future. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/632
Budget 2006 must reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. Ireland has the 3rd highest level of poverty
across 18 industrialised countries, with the richest 10% of the population having 9.7 times more wealth than the poorest 10%. It is children who suffer the most from this inequality and while childhood is time limited
the effects on children experiencing poverty on daily basis last a lifetime. Barnardos recognises that
eliminating child poverty necessitates policy development and investment across Departments and agencies.
