Life on the Streets

In recent months we have heard a lot about children in care, the failures of our care system, and the children who have died in care, children like Daniel McAnespie and Tracy Fay. We’ve heard plenty from the experts and the politicians and the HSE officials. But what about the children themselves, and the young people they become? We asked reporter Della Kilroy to go on to the streets of Dublin to get some of their shocking stories first hand. Pat also spoke to Alice Leahy of Trust to get her views on what Della had encountered.
