Alcohol Action Ireland, the national charity for alcohol-related issues, says a comprehensive examination into the prevalence and impact of parental alcohol problems on children is urgently needed to establish the extent of parental alcohol-related harm to thousands of children across the country.

Speaking following the publication of the Roscommon Child Care Case, charity Director Fiona Ryan said: “While we welcome the inquiry’s findings that additional training of frontline staff on new developments and understanding of attachment theory, drug and alcohol dependency and in particular its effects on parenting and working directly with children, we believe that action speaks louder than words. We urge the Health Service Executive to carry out the recommendations in full.”
