Sexual exploitation of children in State care

A new study from UCD’s social policy school has sounded a warning about the targetting and sexual exploitation of children and teenagers in the care of the State by co-ordinated gangs.

An urgent investigation is needed into the organised targeting by sexual predators of children in care, according to independent research which has taken testimony from frontline workers. The research, which is based on interviews with staff and organisations working with children in care, found multiple cases where girls, some as young as 12, were being exploited by older men. Investigation by the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) is one of the main recommendations of the report ‘Protecting Against Predators’ by the Sexual Exploitation Research Programme (SERP).

A man has been arrested by gardaí investigating a series of violent assaults on a woman who was kicked in the head in broad daylight in Limerick city centre yesterday. A video of the incident went viral after it was shared thousands of miles across social media platforms. The video begins with a male performing a dangerous “big-boot” wrestling move on the woman as she rushes towards him outside the front entrance of the shopping centre. The woman is sent backwards onto the footpath from the impact of the man’s kick to her face, as members of the public, including children, look on.
