ATTACKS ON CHILDREN

Note: Under Construction

This page is intended to be a summary of reports on attacks on children in Ireland, especially Northern Ireland, which are of a sectarian nature.   This page will also summarize so-called, "punishment beatings / attacks" which The Group feels creates extreme and undue stress and fear on children because of the savagery of such attacks many times on young adults 14-22 years of age. As a result of reviewing the below information and feedback from various groups and individuals in Northern Ireland, in June, 2000 the Group's Board of Directors approved it's  RESOLUTION AGAINST PUNISHMENT BEATINGS.

The Children of Ireland Group, Inc. intends to document these attacks on this page as a way of summarizing for the public the on-going dangers and undue stress, hardships, and fears children face on a day-to-day basis.  Should you hear of additional articles, please forward a copy along with the source of information (name of newspaper and date published) to:
