Children's Rights Children's Writing

The supplement Children's Rights, Children's Writing was published in The Irish Times on 20 November 2017.

Produced in conjunction with the Office of the Ombudsman for Children, young writers from around Ireland wrote creative responses to each of the articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was ratified by Ireland in 1992.

A copy of the supplement was presented to Minister for Children Katherine Zappone TD by two of the authors included in the supplement, Kirti Achanta and Jack Fanciulli.
