The modest but real reduction in child poverty in Ireland over recent years is threatened by the proposals made in the McCarthy report and subsequently echoed at government level that the level of Child Benefit should be reduced.
Responding to the extraordinarily high rates of child poverty in Ireland compared to our
European neighbours, successive Irish governments began in the 1990s to lift the level
of Child Benefit. This has resulted in a modest, but discernible and real decline in child
poverty in Ireland.
