Why interview the Children’s Ombudsman?

Niall has a story to tell. Appointed by the President in 2015, Dr. Niall Muldoon, a clinical psychologist and proud Donegal man is our second Children’s Ombudsman in the history of the State.  As Ombudsman he keeps a sharp focus on the rights, welfare and wellbeing of our children and young people. Since he took office he has received over 10, 000 complaints and initiated 32 investigations leading to key changes in health, education and child welfare.

So who writes to the Ombudsman, what do these letters say, what impact has Covid and lockdown had on the social and mental health of our young people? What of the State Exams and Calculated grades? How does his office empower young people to participate in the exercise of their own rights responsibly and enable change for the greater good? Crucially, what motivates Niall to do this life-changing work?  Cognisant of the work of teachers to create schools that are happy, supportive places, these questions and more will be the focus of this hopeful interview. In response, Ms. Nicola Culloty, CBT Therapist and teacher will respond to issues raised in the course of the interview.
