‘wrongfully taken’ 

The Irish Department of Justice’s Central Authority for International Child Abduction has received 25 applications in 2022 for the return of children who have been abducted and taken to Ireland.

According to lobby group Alienated Children First (ACF), these children were “wrongfully taken” to Ireland, often by one parent, from countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention.

The Hague Convention protects children and their families against the risks of illegal, irregular, premature or ill-prepared adoptions abroad and applies between the Netherlands and 91 countries including Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden, and the United States.

However, ACF said that the annual figures do not reflect the total number of children wrongfully abducted to Ireland.
