The Mayor of Kilkenny Sean O’ hArgain has signed a petition forming part of a campaign to support children’s rights.
At a recent meeting of Kilkenny Borough Council, Mayor O’ hArgain said that while the exact details and wording of a proposed referendum on children’s rights had not been confirmed, the principle was a worthy one.
“It is something that I fully support as mayor,” he told the members.
“As we all know, there will likely be a referendum on this in the autumn. I think it is a long overdue development.”
