Daddy Cool: looking at Ireland’s new paternity laws for Irish Tatler

Irish Tatler Jan 2016

One of the greatest struggles facing families in modern Ireland is how difficult it is to get the time and support needed to successfully juggle careers and child-rearing. Much of this responsibility still falls on women.

For this edition of Tatler, I look at what the new law will mean for women, men, and changing Irish attitudes to parenting.
